Shadle Park High School Reviews

I have found my experience at Shadle to be excellent. I have chosen to be involved with a variety of activities, such as multiple sports, instrumental music, National Honor Society, various clubs, as well as taking multiple AP classes. Also, many of my teachers are excellent and help support a positive learning environment. I think my experience is better than the average because not only am I involved, but many of my friends are also invested in Shadle as well. While personal experience has been very good, I realize that there are many deep and divisive issues within Shadle. There are many severe disconnects within and between staff and students. The student body is littered with and separated by cliques that create a lack of student unity. Additionally, many teachers and administration members fail to connect with the student body as a whole. Overall, Shadle Park High School had helped to grow and develop both academically and personally.

Shadle Park really does it's best with the resources it has! I'm in an advanced art class and I'm extremely impressed with the budget of our monthly art haul! Copic markers and oil paints are extremely expensive yet very appreciated. I'm proud of our school, even if I'm not a fan of school spirit assemblies. However, that's only because I'm not a fan of closed areas.
Shadle Park High School does seem to have an active student body. However, in my experience, most of the student-led activities are catered to the more popular students. These popular students plan these events and don't usually consult people who are not also a part of their popular friend group. Online bullying can be an issue at Shadle but in school it is usually not a problem. Just like in any high school, Shadle has enough of a diverse personality that there is a group for everyone to join, even if those groups do not mix. The best thing Shadle Park has is our pride about being a highlander. That pride will continue into the students' adult years and they will continue to support the school when they can.
