I have three students that have attended all three years. One of my students had a great experience. My two others have been picked on, not by students, but by the teachers, the new teachers. If I had an alternative I would use it. Sports are a joke.

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.

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

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!
