14 Parent Reviews for Shaler Area High School

As a former student of Shaler Area High when the high school was on Mt. Royal Blvd., I found the curriculum to be excellent. I started as a sophmore there when the school district was ordered to include all school in the Etna, Millvale, and Sharpsburgh schools. While many people thought this was a ...  Read more

I had an overall positive experience at Shaler, and even landed a full ride for college, but I took honors and AP classes. Many of the students in the lower quartiles of the school do not get much attention unless it is PSSA time. A lot of the teachers are frustrated; even in an honors class, there are ...  Read more

Excellent honors programs. And, students who arent cut out for that tract are given the opportunity for career or vocational training through partnerships offered at area institutions of advanced specialty. The administration works hard to make sure that our kids can compete with Hampton and NA and ...  Read more

Both of my children went to and graduated from the Shaler school district. As a parent I can say I am proud of the education my children received and the way they were treated throughout the school system. The teachers and councelors in all the schools are well trained in their field. Regarding any ...  Read more

I am a going to be a junior at Shaler next year, and I hope the school is better then. This last year was awful- construction got in the way of everything. Some teachers care about the students, others about the standardized tests, and some don't seem to care about anything at all. Last year, everyone ...  Read more
