I had a great experience here. The agriculture education program is outstanding. The school also does a good job of catering to students of all types, from law school hopefuls to those going straight into the workforce. I'm now at Iowa State. I felt fairly prepared for college. If I had one critique, it would be to encourage students to think about college earlier on and take advantage of Iowa Western courses that they can take while in high school that would count toward their college degree.

Overall these last four years have been great and I think that my school has prepared me greatly for college. They've shown me how to study and get good grades and are great for hands on learning or teaching how you learn best but also teach as a college professor. Every staff member is friendly and personally I've made a few of them friends. The Shenandoah High School environment is safe and secure! Even though we aren't the best at athletics we have great coaches and every year I've played the same sport I personally have improved greatly with the help of all my coaches. Overall Shenandoah High School is a great high school to attend!
I had a great experience at Shenandoah High School. I graduated in 2017 and was very involved throughout my years there. I first want to talk about my teachers. I never had any issues with any of them and they were all so supportive, all they wanted was for us to succeed. I was involved in many sports and clubs which really helped me meet new people and stay involved. I think I learned a lot, not only academics but things that I needed to know after I graduated. Overall, my experience at Shenandoah High School was amazing.
