    Excellent. Great teachers and administration

    I attended Shallowater High School for 12 years of my education and I can say it was a great place to grow up. There are small classrooms so the teachers can get to know the students a little better. The things lacking however were very few AP classes and dual-credit classes a small town school trying to be a 'big-town school' and random drug testing.

    Shallowater High School is really great academically and also in their sports but in the past years their band program has really deminished. As for music programs in this school there really isnt anything going on. As for Student Council and UIL activties they are going great and strong. As you all know the sports programs are exceptional!!! Go Stangs!!!
