I have two children who have attended Shoreline and both have had great experiences. The teachers and staff are very involved.Shoreline offers a wide range of after school sports and clubs.
Sadly, our our three years at Shoreline, things have slipped to mediocre (overall). The teachers in 8th grade are terrific (the math teacher in 7th grade a horror, nightmare, failure that needs to go). There are no extras at this school and access to things that will prep college-bound kids for future success isn't really there (unless with an individual teacher - god love them). The school no longer communicates with parents. Activities are being cut back even further - the dances are now just two hours. It's sad.
This school has absolutely exceeded my expectations. I can highly recommend this school to anyone in the area. I have a GATE student and she is thriving there.
We have a new principal and she has knocked everyone's socks off. She is personable, cares deeply about ALL the children and is working to get the teachers to try new things. She is very pro-technology and getting kids to think critically. I believe my child is acquiring skills that will last a lifetime. Outstanding - teachers, curriculum, administration - the whole package.
It has been a great school for my daughter. She is now an 8th grade and loves going to school. I have to tie her down if she is sick to stay home. The learning experience at Shoreline will continue to help her through out her life. The mix of cultures has taught my daughter that all people are equal and everyone needs to work for what they want. he has be c
My son's teachers took the time to get to know him, and gave him the friendship and support he needed to be a successful student. This school has an amazing music program, accelerated math programs, beautiful science labs, and amazing teachers who go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of the students!
The principal always personally, charmingly, translates during meetings for our spanish-speaking parents.
Helpful, dedicated staff and administration dealing with financial and cultural challenges. They offer support and services for all kids including at-risk youth. They deserve our support.
Caring teachers, excellent administrators, beautiful campus. Facing the challenges all California public schools are facing these days, the teachers and staff never give up and work hard to help our kids succeed. Improvement in test scores continues each year even though the budgets keep shrinking... Hooray, Shoreline!
The students are very thoughtful and enthusiastic about learning. The teachers are passionate about their subject material. I love my job!
Shoreline teachers, administrators, and staff really do care about their students. Despite all the budget cuts everyone continues to work hard so that every student succeeds. Go Shoreline!
I LOVE it there! The teachers are so involved in everything that we do and they are always there to help after school with any homework even if it is not for thier class
I love this school because everyone is so nice to each other and the teachers are so great. Also, it has one of the most amazing music and arts programs I have seen. And it's athletic department is very top-notch.
Teachers are very interested in students and expect a lot from them. Principal is top notch. No slacking here! Excellent music program and Language Arts program and teachers are A+. I feel my child is well prepared for high school.
The administrators, councilor and teachers do not seem to put much effort into working with students that have difficulties.
Majority of teachers gifted and dedicated.But program is like a centipede on roller skates. Hoping new principal will help. Lots of bullying. More parent involvement needed, not encouraged?
fantastic music program, but Mr. Fred is retiring this year, so I can't tell if the music program will be as good from now on. More electives offered, at the cost of classroom time for academics. Toohey, Dinino, Eckert, Toshikian all fantastic educators, AVID program wonderful, very dedicated principal,working under challenging circumstances- in not a very academically challenging environment.
