Map of Shortridge High School address.
December 07, 2014
I am an alumni of Shortridge as well as a neighbor, and involved in the community and projects for the raising of scholarships, and making the school an anchor of the community. We have several projects with the school in the areas of art, environmental stewardship and green practices. The school has a lot of spirit and the administrators, faculty and staff are committed to making this a class act. The students are eager, always helpful and bright. We look forward to our continued relationship with administration, faculty, staff, parents and students of Shortridge Magnet Law and Public Policy school.

My daughter attended grades K-7 at the same school. The longer she went, the worse conditions got. The school was turning into a breeding ground for fights and total chaos. The best thing I could ever have done for her was switch to Shortridge Law&Public Policy Magnet High School. She is enjoying her education again. The school is clean and bright and the staff is warm and welcoming. I finally feel safe leaving her at school again! Community involvement is a key part of the school's draw. Lots of stuff for the kids to do to help others in the neighborhood! I couldnt have made a better choice for my daughter than Shortridge!

All IPS schools should be taken over by the state.Since the children's well-being is last on thier list of concerns.It is so clique orienated that good teachers are black listed and pursicuted .When in all reality these students should be failed and held back. A teacher would lose thier job for doing this. Bottom line IPS will continue to struggle until the state takes over.

I found this school full of dedicated teachers and staff who all looked out for the well being of my children. I feel Shortridge is as sound academically as a Public School can be.

The principals don't seem to care to stop fighting and aggression. I don't feel safe w/ my children going to this school. The teachers are awesome and do a wonderful job, but their hands are tied because of discipline issues.
