I am a senior at Shorecrest, I've been here for 4 years! It is a welcoming school with engaging teachers and a great music/theater program. They really try to build a community with homerooms, assemblies and a focus on school spirit. Academics are good, though it can depend on what teacher you get some are better than others.

I transferred into Shorecrest in my sophomore year, in order to take advantage of my public education. I had been attending a different school with weak academics and a toxic culture, when a friend referred me to Shorecrest Highschool. I was told that the academics were held to a national standard and the culture propagated a friendly, diverse, and motivating environment. After a few weeks at Shorecrest, I was relieved to find I had made the right decision. After 3 years of schooling at Shorecrest I have come to make strong relationships with my peers and teachers, have made it to state for athletics, and joined various clubs and programs. Shorcrest is a great school.
Shorecrest is a public high school in Shoreline Washington. Although both the math and science departments are severely lacking the History and English departments make up for it. In almost every grade there will be two different sets of teachers for each subject, everyone says that one teacher is the best if you actually want to learn or do well on a test and that the other teacher (although nice) is a bit lacking in the actual teaching portion of a class. But as long as you are committed to the class and to learning it really doesn't matter much what teacher you get. Shorecrest is a very leadership focused school, meaning that if you're in leadership you are also a part of everything else. The arts also play a large part in the school environment with an entire building dedicated to award winning visual artists, both in theater and in drawing and painting . Shorecrest is a good school with good people and the only truly bad thing about is the stairs.
