I attending Shafter High School all four years. The experiences I had with my teachers was great! They were very great at understanding an issue and certainly knowing how to solve it. Tutoring was always offered after school for students who needed help. The activities were always interesting and fun to get students involved. One thing I would like to see change from this school would most likely be parent involvement. I believe parents have a huge responsibility and play a huge role in students achievement. It would be very nice if the school would get the parents more involved in there students education.
