Shenandoah, like most high schools, is a very toxic environment for most of the students attending. The staff is very gullible and would pick and chose what they wanted to hear and take initiative of. Every day there would be a great amount of blatant racism, sexism, homophobia, etc spread throughout the school. I suffered from sexual assault due to one of the male students and the school failed to shine a light on sexual assault awareness and other victims throughout the school. He was never punished and goes on to walk around the campus like he has done nothing wrong. White boys will wear confederate flags, represent racism, and use hurtful racial slurs on the daily without being punished. LGBTQ+ members are scrutinized every day for who they truly are and bullied due to their sexuality. Girls will be body shamed, shamed for what they wear, shamed for what they do, etc and nothing is done about that either. The school needs to do better and protect their students.
Shenandoah High School is a very welcoming and interconnected school. There are only about 100 people per class, and everyone knows one another by name. The students are very active with their learning community. I would recommend students or guardians with conservative values attend Shenandoah. None the less, everyone will find a social group that they feel at home with.
I love my school and its environment. My teachers have all been pleasant and my school feels like a big family. I do feel like our school corporation doesn't handle situations well. I don't like how they have handled Covid-19. A lot of it has been out of their hands but whatever they can handle they haven't been doing it well. I also feel like some of my schools priorities are off. Other than that its a good school with a great learning experience.
My experience at Shenandoah High School has been amazing! I've accomplished a lot of goals, set new ones, made many awesome relationships, and have gotten the chance to influence others in their faith! I love how the community comes together in all things and is so uplifting, I love how much the teachers and administrators care to make students be the best they can, and I love how every sport or event is praised. There isn't a specific thing that I wish Shenandoah would consider or work on!
Shenandoah High School has been an overall wonderful school experience for me. The teachers have always been very helpful, fun, and kind. The overall environment is comfortable and most of the students are hard-working and willing to help others. I think that our technology resources should be updated and we should have more classes relating to financial knowledge.
I love Shenandoah because of the small community so everyone is involved. All of the teachers are very hands on with their students and provide one on one help. The students are very nice and there is minimal drama at this school. The classes provided were good to help get ready for college. I took several college classes to get a jump start on my education. The school offers many extra-curricular activities as well. Such as Honors Societies, clubs, and sports. I am very glad I was able to attend Shenandoah High School, because it was a great experience for me. I am excited to see how much Shenandoah has benefitted me when I go to college and see how successful I am.
I truly loved the community It provided. We endured some pretty tragic events over the many years I attended, but we persevered. There were a few exceptional teachers, and the ones that weren’t that great were at least great people. And of course, the athletic program was phenomenal.
Since the school is relatively small, it's easier for one to talk to teachers and get help from them.
I have been here since Freshmen Year. The teachers are supportive but also give you space so that you can work individually and use your brain. The facilities are very clean and tidy. It is a smaller school so you don't get lost in it easily. If you ever have a problem academically or in any other way the staff is helpful and try their absolute best to give you everything you need to succeed. Unfortunately the school does not have much diversity in race or style, which is something I would like to change. But I can't without others' help. If you would like to attend this school I encourage it. You could make a big difference.
Shenandoah is very strong in their academics. The teachers really care and push the students to do well. As far as having fun at Shenandoah goes the school is very strict when it comes to safety, so it puts some restrictions on fun activities. Also, there are some things almost all the kids agree need to change, that being the no cell phone rule and also the bus situation. If you drive to school, at the end of the day when school lets out you have to wait for all the buses to leave the parking lot before you can head to your car. Other than that its a decent school.
I like how close the community is but at the same time I dislike everyone knowing everything about you.
Some teachers are great at what they do and it shows through their teaching. Other teachers don't really care or are just bad teachers so that definitely shows as well. All of the teachers care about their students, but some obviously have their favorites. All of the teachers are extremely knowledgeable about their subjects which is great. The bad teachers either don't try to show their knowledge and teach or just can't teach effectively.
All the English teachers are great and really know how to teach. There are a few teachers that aren't all there but for the most part the teachers are great.
The extracurriculars are okay there isn't much funding for them so there is a ton of fundraisers that have to be done
There are few students who are involved in everything and their stress levels are super high. It makes it hard to get along with them because they are always in a bad mood.
The scheduling system in place is sufficient enough to get students the classes they need and/or want each year.
All of the school's policies are set up in a way that are in the student body's best interests and work towards student safety.
