Student, Shakopee Senior High School, Class of 2016,
I would definitely recommend attending Shakopee High School because the teachers and students care so much about one another. The teachers at Shakopee High school genuinely want the students to succeed. They are willing to stay very late after school to help students understand the material, and also willing to come extremely early to school if necessary. Their hours are flexible and they truly go above and beyond when students feel that they are struggling with certain subjects. Therefore, making the learning process more approachable. Likewise, students at Shakopee High School are also wonderful people. Unlike the majority of high schools the relationship between underclassmen and upperclassmen is very relaxed. Everyone treats each other with respect whether they are a graduating senior or an incoming sophomore. Once again providing an inviting place for everyone no matter what grade. Another admirable thing about Shakopee High School is the amount of student-led groups which give back to he school. For example, the peer helper program helps special needs students feel more welcomed and comfortable amongst their peers The student-led group gets the special needs students more involved with pep fests and other various activities, so they too can receive a memorable high school experience too. Another student-led activity involves tutors. Some students at Shakopee Hgh School have dedicated time during and outside of school to tutor their fellow students. This provides an alternative learning resource which has proven to be very affective. Students seem to understand the material better when it comes from one of their peers. Often times students can also make material easier to relate to and understand. Overall, the student-led activities not only benefit the school but also bring unity to the school. Overall the combination of the teachers' sincerity and the welcoming attitude of other students makes Shakopee High School a wonderful school to attend.
