Shadow Ridge High School6

Las Vegas, NV | Clark County

April 14, 2015


- a parent Shadow Ridge is a diverse school economically, and academically. In 2014 a new Principal took over and the administration and staff are in a transition, with an awesome goal is to provide every student with a Google Chromebook. The have a split schedule providing longer class times. On even days students go to 2,,4,6,and 8th periods, and odd days 1,3,5, and 7th period. Not all schools in CCSD provide 8 classes to students allowing more options for electives and less homework time. Unfortunately it is part of the worse school district in America. Schools are desperate for money and the cost for students to participate is too high for some students. They try to make a profit off of everything, which in Nevada is the only option to fund education. Lower income families will have to say no to students on issues like Prom, Yearbook, and $6 lunch fundraisers. The Special Ed at department at Shadow Ridge has failed my one child with an IEP. My second student is having a great year. Parent Involvement is for the very rich parents.

Absolutely no school spirit. The school is okay on an academic level, I learn everything okay. But on the side, it is so awfully boring, it's just routine everyday. And the weeks that there is a Spirit Week.... STILL boring, no students attend/participate in the spirit weeks or any kind of "fun" events that are planned. Dances? Joke. You'd want to leave within 10 minutes as the place is decorated with poorly drawn/painted cartoons on butcher paper. Incredibly boring.

My son has attended SRHS, along with several of my exchange students. I have no complaints about this school. The teachers and all the staff have been very committed and caring over the years. I believe that in HS, you get what you put into it. There is more to school than sports! My family and my children love this school!

Awful !!! If your child is involved in Sports don't attend. Shadow Ridge is open enrollment. Kids and Dads that aren't even zoned for this school have come over and infiltrate and have had an agenda from the start.They even gained up on a coach that had been there for years and never told he was gone, he showed up at practice in front of kids and they let him know they didn't want him.( couldn't even tell him privately after all the years he had contributed, voluntarily) I can go on and on. They treat an adult like that, they treat kids like that, unless you are part of wine nite / and the reich. So many stories seen first hand. It is so crazy. I can't even explain all that goes on. What is really bad is these guys are in charge of our youth. Frank Tousa is the Worst...

I feel my student is safe at school. Most of the teachers are involved with the students and allow for a positive learning experience. The school spirit is below average unfortunately due to the lack of administrative support.

Prejudice plays a big roll! Nothing is being done! Dean protect her own kind, staff is rude! Spirit of student are crushed and don't want to attend. Dean herself is a bully, no compassion is given for the weak. Swaggers rule the school. Girls get in trouble for above knee shorts, while swaggers are allowed to show boxers. Its gross. Can't go to dean for help! No one care to help the weak. My child went from "a's" to "c's", doesn't even want to go to school. Scared of being bullied! Where's the protection? Teachers are being stabbed with pencils in face, vandalism to vehicles. Suspension for defending themselves. The Dean is horrible!!!!!!!

Parents if you want your son or daughter to play sports in college send them to another school like Arbor View!! Me and my entire family supported this football team and these Coaches for years. it was truly a huge mistake. I should of listened to the reviews and sent my son to Arbor View for a better education and better coaches!

My children are pretty good students abd quite involved in all kinds of activities. My only complaint about the school is from the principal down to many of the teachers, a negativity prevails. The administration fears the top guy. The teachers fear for their jobs. The students are not challenged nearly enough. If your child can memorize and spit it back, you will be fine. The school forgets that molding these students into indepenedent, free-thing, problem-solving adults is part of their job. Nope, memorize and take a scantron test is the mantra. The best teachers leave for better working conditions that's for sure.

I went to shadow for freshman and sophmore year, The coaches are dedicated and the dance program is one of the best. I enjoyed my saty besides basic drama. The deans don't follow rules they have favorites and let them get away with anything, the principal doesn't do much at all. The counselors are very dedicated to their job. Having 8 classes is a plus. And Coach Barnson is the best!

I have two sons that attend Shadow Ridge and have had a successful career there. I think that no matter what school your child attends, it is what they make it. Shadow Ridge has strengths and weaknesses just like every other school, but it has given my children what they need to be able to be successful in college. The drawback at Shadow, is that the administration is not as vested in the kids as they are in themselves, but the strength is that there are great teachers, dedicated coaches, and plenty of opportunity for your child to be involved in extracurricular activities.

Don't expect to succeed or become heavily involved with after-school activities unless you are white and mormon.

There are two kinds of teachers at Shadow Ridge High School. Those that are leaving and those that are trying to leave. The administration there is the worst in the school district.

High School is what it is. There will be apathetic teachers and there will be teachers who will leave a lasting imprint on your life. It's up to the individual to decide if they are going to enjoy Shadow Ridge to it's fullest or if they are just there to stare at the walls. If your kids are not being challenged in their class then maybe you should move them up to an Honors class. Don't just complain to the air around you...do something about it.

This school lacks in administrative leadership. It is sad to see students spoken to like they are trash. Students need to have their voice heard at times. The AP of athletics and the hispanic security lady are by far the worst. They encourage students to be disrepectful. Some one should clean house of them and some of the teachers that are there to only collect a paycheck. Ms. PerriCrane is one of them not to mention teachers in the science department. And FYI to coaches, don't you know this is what keeps students off the streets, being a positive role model would help instead of standing yelling with a big gulp in your hands or Coach Tusa that sleeps on the couch in the office while students are attempting to do work for journalism. Wow, get a clue Shadow Ridge staff, be blessed to have such a wonderful position.
