I like it here...but the teachers dont really care about whats happening or their students name, well I dont blame them because its a huge school. I do find it very mellow here. I like it here, as a said before.

As a senior in this high school, I believe that all students and staff are very talkative. Each teacher shows up everyday to school, gives 110% in their work, and are very helpful to all students.

The high school is right now in bad shape. I take issue with a previous comment about the ROTC program since it's the only program that keeps many kids in school. The dress code and electronic devices are totally out of control and many teachers just don't care. Having a student who was a member of the ROTC for 4 years, the instructor is very fair and rewards excellence in all areas - there is no favoritism except for athletics. The parents take absolutely no pride in the way they send their kids to school as far as there dress and walk around breaking rules and looking like bums. Without the ROTC program at SHS the school would be rating well below average

shiphigh school is a wonderful school the administrators enforce many rules and have the highest concern for their students . What the students wear is up to the parents and how they raise them. I think that the highschool should create more afterschool activites. ROTC is the worst program they have because they have to much favortism.

The students at Shiprock High School, when challenged will excel. The problem is that parents, nor teachers, nor administrators will enforce rules concerning dress, electronic items, and follow the handbook. Many teachers are just collecting a paycheck and could care less about the goals of students. The only shining star at Shiprock High School is their Marine Junior ROTC Program and Drill Teams and it's only because the Senior Instructor cares about the kids and puts forth lots of his own time to spend time mentoring the students. Other than that, the students aren't challenged and encouraged to succeed. Even when challenged at school, they return to a home environment that isn't involved in their education. Drastic changes need to happen!

Overall quality of academic programs at Shiprock High School is very challenging. It is up to the students to accept the challenges and make the most of their endeavors at the high school level and continue on to college. For the availability of extracurricular activities the school has some great sport, music, and art programs. It would be awesome if the band played at sporting events like before say like basketball games. For now I have only heard them play at football games. Keep up the good work band members! For parent involvement every parent should check up on their child to see how they are progressing in each class not only when they get into trouble. Another thing is hire a principal that will stay at Shiprock High for several years. A principal with a heart for the students and the community of Shiprock. Thank you.

Shiprock can be very challenging if you stay focus on what classes you take. They provide AP classes which help students to get college credits and prepare for college. On average I would give Shiprock High School an 8 in everything. Besides the parents should be more concern about their child if they ditch. The school can't keep track of 900 kids everyday.

This school ins't very good, what i mean by that is, there aren't any adult supervision students ditch everyday. And thats not cool!

The AP classes are very challenging for the children that are in the classes. I support the AP classes for the students, I am former student of this high school. We did not have theses types of classes back in my days, my child is currently in the AP courses, it is helping her prepare for college life, which I am very glad. I would like for the school to take a serious look into the teaching of the teachers and the importance of why each student should have a book to learn. What I mean by having a book, to have each student have a book checked out to them. So they may take their book home to do their studing. I have witnessed that the students don't have books they need. This needs to be improved! Thank you.

They need more parent involvement and the teachers need to set aside their time and work with the students that need help. Because they cannot depend on other students to help out one another. I also think that they need more hands on to better understand the material that is given to them. Thank You.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
