This is a beautiful school in an amazing community. The school district has done a fantastic job to make sure high school students have many varied opportunities. Not only can children excell academically but they can thrive socially. I am highly impressed with this school.

Pathetic. This school is a joke. The teachers are not the problem, they care a lot about the students education and are very helpful. But the new principal is the problem. She has changed many of the rules, not for the better. If you want your child to attend a very conservative school that loves to punish students for anything just because, send them here. Now, along with the failure of principal leadership, the lunch here is bad. I'm not talking just bad tasting food, but undercooked food with lunch ladies that don't wear hair nets. Numerous times have students found hair in their food. That is not okay. They have also added a "D" lunch. But by the time it is "D" lunch, the main dishes for the day are gone and the only thing left to eat are the cold pizzas that are there everyday. I don't know about you, but I don't think that that is legal. Some of the students in "D" lunch aren't even able to eat because the food is gone and the lunch ladies won't cook more food. Over the past couple of years this school has changed for the worse. Again, the teachers are the BEST but there's a huge lack in principal leadership.

Shakopee High School teachers care deeply about students and focus on instruction and core common curriculum. Students are well-prepared for their next stage of life. Student learning is most important; grade promotion is earned.

Shakopee High School is a joke!!! Most of the teachers could care less about students and just pass on to next grade and the administration is horrible!!

Shakopee is outstanding for its deep (and growing) AP and College in the Schools (CIS) offerings. With the CIS classes (Public speaking, college writing, etc) students are enrolled at the U of M and receive college credit. A great opportunity to do rigorous work and even save some money on freshman college classes.

Having the school be 10-12th grades, allows the kids to be more focused and more age appropriate. Teachers are in credible. Wide wage of activities as other schools make cuts.

Shakopee is a great place to go to school. The teachers at are all very helpful and understanding. The school really is a friendly place that can provide numerous opportunities for students in many departments, whether it be a leadership organization or school sports team.

with the new senior high school in operation. i have felt an urgency of the teachers to make sure that the students have the ability to get help if needed and to pass the classes. Ganted the school is still a bit crowded, it is not nearly as bad as the current junior high( which was formerly the senior high).if teh students don't take the initiative to get help when they need it, then that is their own fault for not getting it and partially the parents for not caring enough about their own child to help them succeed.

The teachers that my son has for the most part do a poor to fair job of teaching. The administration does not seem to care about the quality of the teaching. Now that it has become so crowded, it seems to have slowly gone down hill.

That school is horrible. It's overcrowded, and the teachers there don't seem to care about our children at all. I was appalled at the lack of a LaCrosse team, and equally frightened by the severe lack of racial tolerance. I've not once seen a parent enter the school for any reason other than to pick up their children after a falsified disease. The students are punished for things like wearing head phones, but are let off easy if they're failing, often hitting 3 or 4 'safety nets' on the way down. The classes are in need of severe intellectual division.
