Overall I had a great experience at Shen. I started school there in kindergarten and stayed there all the way through high school graduation. I had an unbelievable amount of opportunities available to me. There was always something going on and you were always encouraged to participate. I was both a member in band as well as an athlete entering high school. Going to events like these made unforgettable memories for both me and my family. With a school as large as this there was always an opportunity to make friends. I continued meeting new people everyday up until the day I graduated, and I know I still haven't met most of my graduating class! Most people I graduated with hated Shen, and associate so many negative comments with it. You're going to get that at any high school in my opinion. However, I had a wonderful experience here, and I won't be letting anyone take that away from me.
