Shorewood High School Reviews
I have always enjoyed school, but I had a really great experience at Shorewood! There are lots of extracurricular and athletic opportunities, high quality music programs, and an involved student leadership program. The teachers and staff are very supportive and determined to help students succeed. I personally was very involved in band and drama, and had a great time expanding my skills in both of those activities. If there are any changes I would like to see, they would be more recognition for programs in the arts and robotics (as opposed to strictly sports). We have so many accomplished students in band, orchestra, choir, and visual arts who simply don't get enough recognition at school.
Shorewood High School on the surface is a very good school for high school academics and readying students for after-high school experiences. It provides many unique and interesting classes, usually with a good curriculum. It is a well funded school, and it has a large variety of sports, artistic programs, and clubs. I'd like to note the excellent after high school preparation for college. However, despite the positives, Shorewood lacks in many areas. There's a lack of care for the students and their personal well beings. For example, the counselors say you can go to them general help and advice, but only give you academic recommendations and needs. Many of the teachers are good, but there is serious lack of care for the students, but instead for the grades they get. And some teachers don't understand personal bondaries, which gets very uncomfortable. It is a good school, there's no denying that, but Shorewood needs to improve it's involvement with students personally.
I really liked that Shorewood was a place where a drama student, robotics competitor, hip hop dancer or cross country athlete could all be part of a huge community that encourages them to follow their passion. I did feel however that the actual school campus and its halls had little to reflect this and needed more school spirit!
