Message from the Principal

Dear Students and Parents:

I am pleased to present the 2023-2024 Shrewsbury High School Program of Studies.  Choosing a challenging and appropriate course of study is a very important piece of your high school experience.  As you will see, Shrewsbury High School has a wide variety of courses for you to select from.  While many are required for graduation, there are electives that you may select based on personal interest and future goals.  Please take the time to review this booklet and then seek additional information and clarification from your teachers, counselors, and department directors.

The academic and elective programs at Shrewsbury High School have been carefully developed to integrate the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, which the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) is built on.  This is particularly important, as all students must pass the MCAS in addition to completing all Shrewsbury High School course requirements to earn a diploma. You will also notice that all courses reflect our 21st Century Learning Expectations, which you will find on page 3 of this book.  These Expectations, which are divided into three categories: academic, civic, and social, outline what we expect every Shrewsbury High School student to be able to demonstrate by the time they graduate.  

We look forward to working with you as you plan your future at Shrewsbury High School and beyond.  If you consider your selections carefully and challenge yourself appropriately your high school experience will be both rewarding and memorable.
