Would you recommend attending Shadow Ridge High School if you had the choice? Why or why not?

Sure with all my passionate words from my previous answers you would think I would say yes, but I would say no to be fully honest. Anyone could list a number why they don't want to, even the student body council president had a few words to say about Shadow for his Senior quote. I enjoy the community well some of it at the very least, but I came to Shadow during my sophomore year and by that time everyone already formed their groups and had friends so I felt isolated from everyone and just unwelcomed one day my Aunt came to pick me up she was shown a very inappropriate gesture, but now that I'm a Senior and I put myself out there it's better now. Although for the academic portion some days I just don't feel motivated to do anything, because I don't feel challenged it all feels like busy work that the teacher gives us brain numbing work because of how easy the work is. Some of the classes I take do motivate me to do and try my very best in, but for a majority many of the courses teachers just don't seem to motivate me enough. And isn't that their job as a teacher to do, to motivate and inspire us?

I would highly recommend attending Shadow Ridge High School as it is the highest rated high school in the Dysart Unified School District. We are the best academically as we have the highest standardized test scores from our students among the other High schools in our district. On the social aspect, everyone at Shadow Ridge is very friendly and it won't take long for you to make friends. I have a friend that just transferred to Shadow Ridge for her Senior Year and she came over from Willow Canyon. She didn't know anyone besides me but in a matter of a week she already created several friendships as well as a group of friends so early in the school year. I would personally recommend attending this school as I am currently in my Senior Year at Shadow Ridge and I have been going for all my years of High School and I can say these last few years have been some of the best years of my life. All the amazing friendships I have created over the years as well as the wonderful memories that will stay with me forever have been created at Shadow Ridge. I have loved my time here at Shadow Ridge and I am somewhat sad that I am graduating this school year because I have enjoyed every minute as a student here and wouldn't replace a thing. The only thing I would wish for is to simply go back in time and re-live it all over again.

I would wholeheartedly recommend attending shadow ridge high school. The combined experience of the teachers and students, plays and sports games, even the lunches are amazing, they all make the high school the best that I know. It's got a unique personality like all of its students, every single square inch has a past, a present, and a future that is full of the distinct spirit that the school is full of. I would never change my school, and if I had to leave, it would be a very sad day.
