There are some really amazing teachers at this school that will make you feel really welcome, but there are definitely some bad eggs that could ruin a class for you if you get them. The majority of them are super nice and helpful though, and the counselors I've experienced were very accomodating and kind! There are a lot of interesting students at this school, and it's very diverse.

If you are thinking about going to college, this is a great school to go to! It has a variety of AP courses and other options to earn college credit before you graduate. The Career Center staff is very good at arranging college visits and checking up on your plans. If you aren't thinking about college, this school has other options for you, such as auto technology class and other career oriented classed, however there definitely is a real push for students to attend college. Most of the teachers are really amazing and try to get to know their students, with a few exceptions. There are a large variety of clubs that a lot of students join varing from STEM related clubs to religious clubs to political clubs and fun activity clubs. The sports however are decent but not exceptional.
The opportunities and resources that the Shorelines School District offers are excellent! The students and faculty are generally caring and good people. Like any other school, there can be more growth. Especially in the environmental impacts of the school can be majorly improved.
