I've been blessed with a great high school experience. I'm a big part of the culture at Shadle Park being a cheerleader, on the varsity soccer team, varsity tennis player, member of National Honor Society, in our leadership class and a Highlander Helper. I have met some amazing people and taught by some amazing teachers who actually care about your learning. My favorite part is seeing the special education students smiling faces every morning, so excited to see their best friends. We have tried so hard to shape our environment to fit every unique student we have at Shadle. It's so hard to satisfy every student, which makes to spirit hard to bring out of some people. Overall, Shadle Park has evolved into the unique school with students from all walks of life and we are only going up from here.

Amazing teachers and faculty there, and a great place to cultivate a great education! I really appreciate the Highland pipe band--it is definitely special and very unique to Shadle.
There’s lots of passionate and caring teachers, counselors, and support staff, but administration is not as supportive. The environment of the school is not the most welcoming, students are rude and undisciplined by the administration. Too many times I have seen them punish the victim instead of the perpetrator. One good thing about the school are the teachers and support staff. They care deeply about students, and will do anything to help them succeed.
