New Entrant Assistance Team (NEAT)

The New Entrant Assistance Team will welcome new students entering grades 10 through 12. Members of NEAT help upperclass transfer students make the transition to Shrewsbury High School.

We need NEAT volunteers! Please encourage friends who are looking for positive ways to get involved in supporting SHS to send an email to Ms. Floyd.

See you in August!


Mentor Volunteer Program (MVP)

MVP students are chosen through an application and interview process. These students assist grade 9 students in acclimating to classes, learning about activities, using their lockers, and helping freshmen adjust throughout their first year at the high school. Summer training for MVP is held every August.  Mentors must also attend the freshman orientation each year.


ACE Internship

This program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to earn credit by applying academic skills to a workplace experience. ACE Program (Advanced Career Exploration) allows motivated students to acquire knowledge from employers that he/she may not find in the classroom. Students will be expected to attend the internship on a regular basis according to the internship supervisor. Furthermore, students will be required to produce a student portfolio, a journal of daily activities, and a final experience paper, to be turned into Shrewsbury High School for assessment at the end of the internship. Each student will earn a letter grade based on the student meeting the program requirements.

Throughout the program students should collect information, photographs or anything that relates to the work experience that would help assist the student with his/her portfolio. The portfolio portion of the program represents the work of the student throughout the entire internship. Students will also attend workshops to learn the important concepts of resume and cover letter writing, interview techniques, dress code requirements, communication skills and other important skills needed in the business environment.

Students will be expected to meet guidelines for both Shrewsbury High Schools' ACE Program and the guidelines set forth by each employer. A representative from Shrewsbury High School will meet with employers periodically to follow-up with student progress.
