I sincerely enjoy my experience at Shrewsbury Public Schools. The faculty has always provided the best possible education for the students and has always been willing to aid in our future success. In the high school, there are over 20 clubs and sports offered as well as all different class levels depending on a student's strengths in each subject. The only negative I have on Shrewsbury Public schools is the population size. Our community has grown these past five years with the addition of several housing communities. The High school now holds more than 2000 people, making it difficult for each student to be remembered within the community.

Overall, I think that the Shrewsbury Public School system has many the resources available for its students. They have all the core classes and many chance to advance beyond your grade level. A few things that is different between Shrewsbury and other towns is that, Shrewsbury doesn’t offer AP classes freshmen year. You can self study and take the AP exam, but they mostly are not offered for sophomores and freshmen.
I like the teachers at shrewsbury public schools because they are very helpful and stay after school for help. These teacher provide good one-on-one help to students and make sure that their students understand all of the class material. I also like the organization that is held for the schedules and class times within shrewsbury public schools. The diversity is also well held within the schools which gives shrewsbury public schools an equal and free environment.
