Shrewsbury Senior High School Reviews

I love Shrewsbury High because of the many opportunities to get involved and the caring and helpful staff. Our administration truly cares for the students and there are many amazing teachers. There are so many sports and clubs to get involved in, which I believe is a huge part of high school. Shrewsbury is a particularly challenging school compared to other high schools in the area, and the majority of students are expected to succeed and go to college after graduation. I find this expectation makes me want to work hard and achieve what I can, and my guidance counselors are very supportive of any decision I make after high school. Shrewsbury is full of opportunities and you can really make the best out of the high school!

It’s really a typically suburban highschool, but with great social opportunities from events, school morale competitions, clubs, and sports! We have a plethora of resources and money to spend on field trips (foreign language students can go abroad, except for Latin students), computers (iPads are loaned to all students), clubs, sports, and facilities. However, I think the culture of the school, the drugs, and unenthusiasm is a big negative. It’s an awesome experience though, I’ve grown a lot and made a lot of friends!
Shrewsbury High was an amazing experience! The education I received thoroughly prepared me for college. I enjoyed playing on the sports teams, the community the school has, and all the friends that I made going back to elementary school, middle school and high school in the Shrewsbury public school system. The administration and school counselors prepare you for college with many resources that support students and their families.
