Sharon High School is overall an excellent high school that focuses on college readiness. Although its courses can become quite difficult, the structure is there to help you reach a greater potential as long as you are willing to work at it as well. The students are overall a friendly bunch. The school spirit however is quite weak in comparison to the strong academics. Whenever there is a Pep Rally or sport event, the student body never seems to show much enthusiasm to support the events, for what reason I do not know, but it is very clear. It is a very liberal school, so if you enjoy that type of environment, then you may fit in well!

Sharon high school is a great school, no doubt about it. The academics are great and the environment is very welcoming. However, the high school faces some major issues as well. The facilities are practically falling apart, never mind the school lunches that are edible on a good day. Additionally, will the majority of teachers week very dedicated to their students and their subject, there is, like any school, some discrepancies that can inhibit learning. So while Sharon high school is undoubtedly a very good school, it fails in certain crucial areas that would mark it as an extraordinary school.
My experience at Sharon High School is disappointing. The school lunch there is undercooked, overcooked, soggy, hard, or both. Whenever it is time for senior lunch people have to fight over the food because it runs out for senior lunch. The actual building itseld is rundown and broken. There is even black mould growing insid3 the building itself. There should be enough funding for the school, but it doesn't feel like it. I love a lot of the teachers there and my learning experience is fairly good. I am disappointed for the funding for the arts and I just sincerely wish the school would get better.
