What an amazing school. The educational opportunities at Shoreland are amazing. Their state of the art STEM facilities allow students to earn college credit their freshman year in high school. Shoreland also puts on a "Night to Shine" prom with the Tim Tebow Foundation for special needs kids where the Shoreland students can volunteer. Simply amazing. Their love for Christ is seen in everything they do.
The leadership is focused on their strong academic standards and educating the students in an ethical, Christ centered atmosphere. An amazing STEM program where a high school freshman can earn college credit. Shoreland educates, equips and prepares students for the real world.
They communicate well. If a kid doesn't get something they will go over and above. They also teach in a creative up to date fashion that engages the students. The students who are looking for higher level courses are also able to grow and learn from this talented group of faculty.
I can check grades and find a list of pending assignments online. I can also contact the teachers from the same site, (via email) and get a quick response if I have concerns. There is also the See center option for kids who need help with organization and have difficulties in certain subjects.
My son is happy at this school. It was a feeling he didn't expect to experience. That makes the everyday trials and tribulations easier. He does not thrive in a traditional learning environment, so the STEM program has provided a learning spark. The relationship he has with the faculty and staff has been positive. If he has a problem, they give him the support and tools to move forward successfully. My husband and I love the faculty and staff we have met. They are happy people who listen and support us and our needs. It feels like we're hanging with friends and family when we walk through the doors.
Shoreland is a good school but not life. As a student that went here the classes that are offered teach you nothing about the real world. The teachers need to refresh the stuff that they teach. We are using books and worksheets form the 90's in some classes. As a response to the old ways of teaching the faculty decided to revamp the way of teaching and force the whole student body to purchase Chrome books. As a student I already purchased a laptop the year before but you must use a Chrome book. The Chrome books are barely used as none of the teachers understand how to use them. The internet is terrible here. Those who have a computer or Chrome book are not able to connect and therefore nothing gets done. The money we get is wasted on stupid things. The athletic department receives way to much money. Although our sports teams suck, we can still afford to buy new scoreboards, new football jerseys and helmets. They waste money.The Technology directer needs to be watched as he has to much power and is terrible at what he does. We spent so much money on the new expansion but we can't have the outlets in the science rooms work. The school overall needs to gets its priority's straight.
