Bad experience. I had an issue arise with the school and went directly there. A woman took down some details and called me back later in the day. I asked why the superintendent didnt call me and she stated he told me to call you back. I wanted to speak with him directly...she said shes sorry about that. Very unprofessional experience. Making the secretaries do the dirty work. Shame on them.
School has far to many cameras no study's and required to change twice for gym.. swimming is unopional and homework is overly abused from a student point of view no freedom is given for us students and teachers have slim to none respect ... Most of them . Homework needs to be respectfully given If you come to gym dress for it you shouldn't have to bring an extra pair of clothes Swimming in the pool needs to be optional Study's need to be added to the schedule
Shawsheen Tech..Billerica Ma..Both of my granddaughters attending the Tech ,a senior and a sophmore are learning valuable workplace skills,as well as getting a well rounded education;one just passed her state exam in cosmetology and has been accepted into a 4 yr. state University;the other young lady is enrolled in the health studies program,earning high honors,while being very active in school sports.Their younger sister may also attend the Tech for the quality education that it offers and opportunity to explore future career options. The Shawsheen Tech also maintains an attractive campus with excellent teachers.
This is my son's second year at the Tech and I am very happy with this school because the parent teacher communication is top notch. I have a bright son who needs a push here and there. I've made requests to be notified when he does poorly or misses and assignment and they have complied most graciously. Although it is a public school, the terms for admission allow them to be particular about their student choice which keeps it a safe and respectful environment. I hope some of the other public schools can model their infrastructure with places like this as an example.
This is a wonderful school which takes the 'whole child' into account. The level and diversity of instruction are incredible. Teachers and administrators are accessible and give 110%. Teachers and adminstrators encourage the students to try new things. Extracurricular activities and student involvement are also encouraged.
