Shoreham-Wading River High School Reviews

All Categories
Shoreham-Wading River offers a wide variety of classes for its size, including multiple fine arts classes, technology and computer sciences, as well as business oriented classes. These help to accommodate students whose academic interests do not fit into the standard STEM and language pathways of academia. The school needs improvement in many ways, including taking better care of students with personal non-academic issues, but the new administration is making strides for so many changes.

Overall, there are teachers who really care about their students and are amazing at their fields of study. But on the other hand, there are some teachers who aren't up to par. The clubs are amazing and all of the people in them are super friendly and the teachers make it a good time.
SWR High School was a great place to go to high school. I was very fortunate to have a great group of friends, teachers, and coaches. The School is now Capstone, offering more challenging classes for those who want a better academic involvement. The athletics are great. We are very competitive in almost every sport. The clubs are great and increasing in number. Overall awesome experience!!
