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.

My children all attended this school and each had great experiences and were well prepared for college. We found caring administrators and teachers who loved their jobs, were good at their jobs, and knew how to reach each child and help them reach their potential. I had my kids in private school prior to high school, and I spent much of my childhood in private schools, but I have been more impressed with Shorewood High than I have been with any of the private schools we have experienced. At Shorewood my kids are getting a great education, and being exposed to a variety of people from differing backgrounds. They are better prepared for adulthood, college, and life as a result of the four years they have spent (or are spending) at Shorewood. I would recommend this school to any parent of any child. Over any private school in the area.
Overall, love the school. There is a great support of system of teachers and staff who want you to succeed. Although it's not very diverse the school makes a huge effort to promote equity and awareness. Overall, I enjoy going to school every day and am proud to be a thunderbird!
