I was in the graduating class of 2012 at SHS. My time there was and will be different as compared to other students that are attending or have attended. Everybody experiences different things, and my experience was a mix. I had only a handful of fantastic teachers that loved to teach and whom made learning ...  Read more

One of these things is not like the other! Shrewsbury high school's Nature Trail is its most distinguished feature. I love having classes in the greenhouse. The AP Music Tech teacher Mr. Weingarten is the best teacher in the school. I often join the kids by the flagpole every morning. Ping Pong is my ...  Read more

I go to school here, and don't witness as much bad behavior as some of these reviews are saying. I assume that in any high school you are going to have the kids who joke off and the ones who stopped caring, it's been that way at every school I've ever gone to. The teachers in honors classes are very ...  Read more

Everyone seems to be much nicer and since there ...  Read more

I have children who have graduated from Shrewsbury and St. Johns HS and we feel that Shrewsbury was equal academically with St Johns. Shrewsbury actually made the students work harder in the Honors and AP level classes. The children who worked hard and had parent involvement seemed to thrive. The bar ...  Read more

I am a Shrewsbury alum and still believe Shrewsbury is a great school. There is only so much that can be done with behavioral issues and Shrewsbury still maintains strong academics/arts/athletics despite the issues of some rowdy kids. Maybe the behavior issues are stemming from their home lives and ...  Read more

I have a junior there who is involved in many aspects of school. The administrators are very visible and accessable to students. SHS offers numerous AP classes, and has a fantastic arts program with music and drama staff that goes above and beyond. Course selection is decent even with budget cuts
