    "Shen high east and west are both great school. With something for everyone. A large music, technology, and art section. Sports are important at shen, but they don't take over the school. Shen is considered the best at most varsity sports, this is a result of the number of students who attend shen and try out for sports. We also have a great robotics team that goes to national often. Shen has a wide varity of clubs that you could join, from photography club to science club to french club (and other language clubs). The list of the clubs offered is on the school website. We also have a technological advantage since shen recently invested money in technology so their students could keep up with the changes in the world. A large number of AP courses are offered at shen too. Over all shen is a great school."

    "I've had 2 kids graduate from Shen and 1 almost finished. All 3 have enjoyed their experiences tremendously. They were challenged and prepared for college, while having many activities to participate in such as sports, student gov't, the future business leaders club, peer counseling, etc. The Principal and Superintendent are at all types of events and are very engaged in the education and culture of the school. My wife and I settled in Clifton park after 11+ years of moving around the U.S. with the military, and we could not be happier with where our children were raised and the education they received from Shen. My kids have high aspirations and their success in college so far tells me that Shen had a lot to do with preparing them for adulthood while providing positive childhood memories. It is a large school, and some kids will always struggle in their teenage years, but we have found that if a kid asks for help there is no shortage of assistance from the faculty. All schools have people that complain, but if you are looking for good values, work ethic, and opportunity then I don't think you will find many public schools that can top Shenendehowa."

    "I attended this school. Although it is portrayed as a wonderful, outstanding educational establishment, it is terrible. Teachers do not teach in sensible ways, and many, many children are oblivious as to what they are doing more than frequently. When children arent failing, having anxiety attacks, crying, or stressing over their tests, they sit in confusion due to indolent or just simply bad teachers not teaching in good ways. The test scores are a lie, because many fail a large amount of the tests given, due to poor teaching. Shen is honestly a very bad school. Although it may seem nice, the truth is maybe 30% of the school enjoys it, and is being educated to their liking."

    "I went there K-12 and would not have wanted to go anywhere else. They have programs for everyone. I graduated in 2009 and got into an engineering college thanks to my science and engineering teachers. This is the best public school in the district, whether you like sports or not."
