As a previous student of Sharyland HS I can tell you this place is a joke. Luckily for me I transferred from a district where the teachers actually taught and the students really learned. Semester block scheduling in high school (at least at this school) is a horrible notion. The teachers taught about 30 minutes worth of material, then students were mostly left to their own devices. We would watch movies, play cards ( I became an ACE at many card games). To pad grades, most teachers (even AP teachers with a few exceptions) would give students an exact review of the test with word for word questions and answers of the real test. All we had to do was memorize the answers to get top grades. If students weren't in the mood to take a test all it would take was one or two comments to the tune of "missssss.....we aren't ready. we need a few more days, I brought a movie!!" Then the test would be postponed. This school is a discredit to its students- after leaving with what they consider a satisfactory education no student would be ready for courses at a real university.

This school isn't what it use to be. The focus has shifted from education to sports with large funds spent on a few students and a whole lot of coaches. Discipline and student safety are not at the standards they use to be.

Like most schools today this school is ok if your kid fits in the box. If not you better home school or look for other options.

Strict school policies, and always felt safe on campus. The counselors are always so helpful, it could be dealing with college or a loss of a loved one. Administrators have improved so much. Teachers are always pushing students to strive to be the best.

Bad administration staff not well trained, they do not know how to be leaders! How can you have a good school when they don't have the traning or education to be leaders them selfs. Some of the teachers and consulers are good, but good luck who you end up with!!

Bad leadership. With very ignorant and untrained administration and staff, that care more about their jobs than the students. Some excellent teachers but other very bad ones. So it is a toss up who your son ends up with. Counselors are generally good, but too afraid of despotic administrators.

The School overall Is good but it has it's good and bad sides. In the good side there is the strict dress code policies that gives students a good contemporary look and gives a good impression of this school another distinguished achievement the school has proved to show is severe enforcement of school policies and norms, helping to keep all the students in line and maintaining the school as a safe environment. Another thing i must address is that it has an outstanding academic achievement and a great sports department as well. But regarding installations the school lacks of a good hygiene in the restrooms and commendable accommodations with toilets and lavatories. Another issue encountered in the school is the lunch, this is something my son and I found completely outrageous. The food lacks of wide variety of nutritious servings and at times the rest of food in the menu is not fully cocked. This issue i hope can be fixed because lunch is a very import part of the child's day and with a bad lunch the child will eventually have a bad day.

An excellent school with traditional, conservative values. Excellence is the standard. School wins at everything from academics, arts to sports.

Sharyland is a great school! I always felt secure and welcome. I grew up in the Rio Grande Valley and was so blessed to be able to attend a high school like Sharyland. The teachers and staff are all great people, willing to help. I was very involved in athletics, organizations, and graduated in the top of my class. Sharyland offers not only a great education but a variety of things to be involved in outside of school. It is a school full of pride. Students are able to learn in a safe environment. The dress code is more strict, but this was always a positive thing to me. I would rather be in a school that has some rules than in one where kids can fight and do whatever they please in the halls. Sharyland is definately the top or one of the top schools in the Rio Grande Valley.

The quality of academics is high in contrast to the TAKS scores. Sharyland has a very good math department. It is a very safe, secure and, pleasant learning environment for students.
