my school is a good school and they try to pay really good attention in there students education but i think they shouldn't have crazy deans in the school, and i think the common core standards should go because its to difficult for the kids and its not a good idea. Let this come true

I think that my school provides the kids with many opportunities. The assistance principals and the deans are so nice and caring when it comes down to the students. We have regent programs and YMCA and every morning, we look forward to going to school. I love this place.

The faculty and staff at Shell Bank really go above and beyond the call of duty in educating my son. This is an excellent place for children to learn and I am glad

I think the changes-uniforms and academies are great. The school seems to be progressing in a positive way. I like the way the Law AP handles the students, firm but very positive. She is very vocal and involved with the students. The Principal is also very visable and approachable. Great job to them!

This school has had many changes for the better. The new principal has many great programs now in place, and has many to get started for next year. It looks great- with the new murals, and the teachers all seem so happy to be there. I am very happy with the school. There has only been one issue (school bus), and the 6th grade assistant principal took care of it right away. This is an up and coming educational place. Parents should check it out.

I had two daughters attending this school and I must say that I am glad that of them graduated already. I think that that school really stinks when it comes to academics. My youngest daughter who had a very good grade point average in math before she entered this school now it has been lowered. Do to poor teaching skills. I would not reccomend this school to incoming sixth graders. My daughter chose this school for a medical program that they said they had and this is her last year and, that program still haven't been offered to her.

The academic programs here are great. There are many advanced classes for the smarter students. The availability for extracurricular activities are high. We have the YMCA. This program is free and includes dance programs, basketball programs, and karate programs.The parents are really involved in our school. They always help out with the funds and activities. I should know since I attend the school.
