Shaker Heights High School is very diverse, with students of many different religions, ethnicity, and races. The teachers really help their students to succeed not only in the classroom, but also in life outside of school. Students are encouraged to participate in our 300+ clubs and support our athletic teams. One Thursday of every months, there is an advisory period, which, for juniors and seniors, is used for planning out the steps necessary towards college. Students feel safe with our large security team present at all times. The only down side there is presently is administrative, and is being worked on this very moment.

The school is a mixture of people from different backgrounds, race, ethnicity, religions, sexual preferences. I overall think the school teaches you more about life then academics. It's opened my eyes to how the world is how it looks. But the people that have different parents judge you on how you were raised. Most of the teachers do care about you, of course sometimes we think they are being unreasonable but that happens everywhere. Compared to other Cleveland city schools they have the best lunch. You always have something to do because they have over 100 clubs and activities. BUT SOME PEOPLE ARE RACIST! Watch out and report it when you notice it.
I didn't realize how much Shaker Heights High School helped me until I graduated. For instance, the classes at SHHS have prepared me so well for the transition into college. The curriculum and the teachers do an excellent job of pushing you to become the very best student you can be. Although it may be tough it was definitely worth it in the long run. If that's enough SHHS has a variety of clubs that you can get involved in! And if for some reason you don't find a club you can make your own. When I attended SHHS a couple of my friends and I started Outdoor Adventure Club and it's still alive and well. All in all, SHHS was a great experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
