Shenango High School is a great, small scale school that may initially lack the flair and attractiveness of larger schools, but it excels in the necessities. It has wonderful staff, passionate teachers, and great academic opportunities. If your looking for many extracurricular activities, however, I would maybe abstain from this school as it has limited resources. But as for me it has been phenomenal, and the fellow students and staff have been exceptionally welcoming.

All the teachers at Shenango just love to help students succeed! The student body is also so supportive of each other, creating a tight-knit community. I love all the opportunities I’ve been provided here.
I really like the Administration. They get to the root of any problems you are having, investigate it immediately, and put you in touch with someone who can help you solve your problem. The Principle, Mr. Summers, is an effective leader, great mentor, investigator, and a great, detail-oriented problem solver. If he cannot solve your problem, he will then put you in touch with someone who can solve your problem in a very timely manne, and most of the time, your problem is solved on the same day that you bring it to his attention. Also, the ladies that work in the front offices are very nice and very helpful.
