    As a student with ADHD depression and an anxiety disorder I have trouble with most schools and their methods of teaching and assigning work. Schools are required to offer help and accommodations for mental illness but at Shorecrest you have to fight tooth and nail to get it and even after doing that I wasn't given any help. My brother had dropped out because of this while I'm struggling to get through a second senior year. In all I'm extremely disappointed with the administration. The only upside is the great performing arts program but that doesn't seem to be a high priority with the administration. Teachers tend to be hit or miss with some amazing teachers and some absolutely terrible excuses for educations.

    My daughter graduates this year. She adores this school but it must be said--she's a freak Self-motivated mature tireless worker. The big surprise ffor us is the degree of school spirit she feels even though she could not care less for sports. What's worked? Fabulous teachers (she missed the duds) strong academics award-winning lit/arts magazine ultimate frisbee coffee house theater arts and again . . . teachers-teachers-teachers. I cannnot speak for the experience of the less-academically inclined. This is a diverse student population with a fair percentage of low-income and immigrant children. For what I can see they're doing the job. My son's experience as a freshman has been positive as well. He's a nerd and has felt welcomed and connected. An awesome start I'd say.

    For a public school this school is decent but it leaves a lot to be desired. College-bound students are given little help with the process as the administration focuses all of its resources on helping the lazy students who aren't on track to graduate. The soccer team is amazing and the band program is strong but when it comes to getting into college you have to be 100% self motivated. A lot of drugs too.

    My stepdaughter is getting a great education at Shorecrest where she has many opportunities to participate in wonderful programs like the high school orchestra literary magazine and Highland dance team. She is enjoying all aspects of her high school - social and academic.

    I go to shorecrest and it is awesome! maybe there's a lot of drugs and gangs but just don't hang around those people then...it's just like any school. Everyone's so friendly and spirited and nice! The teachers are awesome and I love the honors/AP program

    I love Shorecrest! Everyone is nice open and so spirited. There are some issues of course but it wouldn't be high school without them.

    I've had three children go through this school. All three went to a diffrent program in their senior years..Shorecrest and it's teachers failed to provide what students need to achieve their goals..Shoreline Community College helped each one of our kids..and now they are on to careers. with NO thanks to Shorecrest..Wish I would have pulled them out earlier!!!!

    Gangs Violence Drugs its horrible! After my sons Sophmore year at Shorecrest I sent him right to Shorewood. It was the best decision of our lives. He loves the positive atmosphere and the great teachers Shorewood provides.

    School environment scheduling prepares student for a 4 year college. Providing each students with a mac laptop computer is awesome. Digital photo social psychology math & other classes made my daughter very excited in attending this school.

    I am going to be a junior at Shorecrest high school this fall. To be perfectly honest I don't really like Shorecrest that much. Yes the performing arts programs are amazing but the emphasis is mostly put on the football team (which isn't even that good) and band. Other programs don't get much recognition at all. There is also a lack of classroom structure and the rules are very slack. I can't wait to be a senior.

    I think shorecrest is a pretty good school. The teachers are outstanding the music program is amazing the extracurriculars are good. My daughter is pretty happy (as happy as a teenager can be about attending high school). Even though she is pretty 'different' in many ways she is not harassed or bullied and has a circle of friends.

    The B student that wants to go to college does not get much help at this school only those that qualify for AP or vocational bound get the necessary help that is needed.

    Shorecrest High School is overall a very good school as are most schools in the Shoreline district. We have a variety of interesting classes and the teachers are all dedicated to their chosen profession. It is nice to know that you are being taught by people that enjoy what they do. The one complaint I have is that the Performing Arts programs do not receive as much recognition as the sports programs and that is very disappointing to those involved.

    This school has the potential to change a lot of students lives the rules are too lenient. not much personal attention is paid to students who really need it.

  • (9 years ago)

    Very fun school kinda boring at times active sports centered though

  • (10 years ago)

    Shorecrest is the best High School around. Ofcourse kids will be kids. If your son was being bullyed it should have reported it to security/administration and something would have been done. Shorecrest is a quality school and anyone can find something that they want to do to meet people form friendships learn new skills etc.
