I'm a freshman at Shadle Park. I'm in really challenging classes, that are years above my grade level; like chemistry. Trust me it hasn't been easy juggling four advanced classes, and participating in time consuming afterschool activities; that's is for sure. I chose this crazy combination of classes and activities, and the Shadle Staff has always helped me when I have too much homework; or if there is something I don't understand. I feel like I've learned/grown so much, that it's hard to beleive it's only been a couple months. I Shadle has a really great dedicated staff, and I feel if some students at Shadle would apply themselves more; they would find that Shadle's an awesome school. If they would just stop focusing on the negatives, and start focusing on all the positives. Maybe they would see that all the teachers, and the staff are all there for you.

It's obvious some of these reviews are written off of biased opinions. Our student body is not a mess. Our teachers are fine, and kids need to learn how to get their work done and get their help. Anyone who thinks the teachers are bad haven't been there themselves. End of story, I've been well educated, and I PASSED the running start entrance exams flawlessly.

Terrible School, Terrible Administration, and Terrible Curriculum. Most teachers don't care about student's future or their education. They use "smart" boards to help them spell!!! All colleges in town complain that Shadle is the only school that doesn't support the Running Start and most students can't even pass the entrance test due to the lack of education. The parents' connect online feature although advertised A LOT, doesn't actually work, because teachers are too lazy to post the grades, so you never know where your child is at. Administration doesn't support students or parents. For that beautiful renovated school outside it is very rotten on the inside. I will NEVER send another of my children to Shadle!!!

I've been a student here for 3 years now and I love it. My peers are great and the teachers help when needed. The principal is one of the coolest guys i have ever meet.

Shadle has been incredible for me. My freshman year was comfortable for me, most of my teachers were great, I love the area. I think the bagpipes and the dancers are cool, it adds to the school spirit. Our dance team and our softball are amazing!

My three daughters have attended Shadle Park High School and have had wonderful high school experiences. The majority of the teachers are great and sincerely like teaching and want their students to succeed. The calculus teacher is so devoted that she holds Wednesday night study tables each week. If students want to be involved, there are opportunities in music, dance, drama, DECA, sports, leadership, community volunteering, knowledge bowl, and many more. Shadle provides a great atmosphere for learning and for being involved!

I agree with Becky, that homework is not easily accessible. Shadle has a problem with trusting the parents. They don't help students and parents yet hinder a lot of them. Rules not applied consistently. Coaches with blind eyes to students they favor. Math a subject most students are flunking. Why? The music program is a good one. Shadle has digressed since I attended and graduated. I was once proud of this school, now I just wonder. I think it needs a complete overhaul.

I go to Shadle, and it is the best experience I have ever had! The coaches are great, the honors is great, the orchestra is by far the best I have ever seen, and the school spirit is just busting out everywhere. The football season was a blast this year! I would reccomend anyone to come here and join us at Shadle!

As a parent of a student on IEP's we have found this school to be nothing but problematic at best. While in Washington State it remains the law that Teacher follow the current IEP and all the accomadations set forth. We have found that the teacher are basically unwilling to follow those guide lines. Also another note would for all students if you are in need of homework help it is difficult to get it. It seem that the school wants kid to arrive before school hours start to receive this help. I wish everyone goodluck with this are findings have been that if the teacher is there they are in meetings or involved with something extra curricular. I will say that the Staff is a real pro at 'side tracking' parents away from the principal and sticking you with someone who glosses over the problem.

The principal at Shadle knows a ton of students on a first name basis and as a Senior this year it meant a lot to have him attend every basketball game I played in. The bag-pipers add something to our school spirit which no other school can match. The honors program at Shadle was really helpful and as a running start student I was prepaired for college a year ahead of schedule. I love the Shadle Park Community and it was an awesome school to attend the last 4 years.

Shadle is, by far, the best high school in District #81! The teachers are devoted and knowledgable, the students are respectful of differences and ready to learn, and the support staff are friendly and efficient. Thanks!
