The Jean and Jerry Friedman Shalhevet High School Reviews

15 reviews
All Categories
The education is excellent, but of course it can always be better. This school prepares you for college and teaches you a lot, but it isn't as college-prep heavy as some schools. College-prep is really light until junior year, leaving some students feeling unprepared at first. Many teachers are excellent, but the school has trouble keeping some of the really good teachers. The school is close-knit which makes it hard to make friends at first, but once you do the community is amazing. Students can be really close to staff members. The school has town hall and allows the students to have a strong voice and opinion in every matter. The co-curriculars are strong. Strong drama, choir, model congress, sports, and newspaper programs, as well as others. All of the listed programs have won awards in their fields, and are fun for the students. There is a lot of work, but I think it is worth it.

Quality of teachers: Overall, most teachers at Shalhevet are amazing. Unfortunately, just like every other high school there are still a few teachers that students complain about.

Teaching styles: Some teachers teaching styles target a wide variety of students. Others usually target the extroverted students that like to work in groups. This is unfortunate because a third to half the people in Shalhevet are introverts (like me) a prefer to work alone. Sometimes I wish that there weren't so many group projects instead of individualized work. I would make the teachers learn about Susan Cain and her research, but I feel that it wouldn't make much of a difference. (Note: If you don't know who Susan Cain is, look her up. She described my life's problems in a few short sentences.)

Knowledge, interest in students, communication skills, and consistency in grading are all A+ in my book (with the exception of one or two teachers).
The education at this school is top-notch, and most students try very hard. Unfortunately, the work load is insane. I hear freshman are staying up until twelve at night and drinking coffee in the morning to survive. I truly believe that this isn't right and shouldn't happen. As a senior, the heavy work load is understandable, but as a freshman even I didn't stay up until twelve.

The social aspect is sort of tough because everyone has their own little clique that they join, and most are unable to accept "outsiders."

This is mostly why I rated the school a three because if you don't have fun/friends in high school, high school can become a very long four years like it did for me.
