Shadow Ridge High School1

As a parent I am embarrassed to even say my child goes to this school. My child is a straight A student and has been all during her high school years. We are getting ready to move out of the Dysart School District, because they are truly HORRIBLE!! After notifying the school of our intention to leave, they are having her do an assignment that is due AFTER we leave. The teacher and administration tells her that if she doesn't turn it in early then she will get a zero.... even though the assignment isn't even due yet. They are also saying that if she doesn't complete her finals (which are done after we move) that she will not get a grade on her transcript. All of this being said the school is going to ruin my daughters chance of getting into a good college because she will get no grade for the semester and a zero on an assignment that isn't due. If you are a parent, please beware of sending your child to this school. They are out for the mighty dollar, not the students.
It is a very good school, with great facilities and staff. There is a good selection of Honors and AP courses. The school a community feeling to it. Things should improve with the move away from AIMS testing and the National Standards becoming the focus.
