Open Quote My child attends the Academy@ Shawnee Middle School. It is an EXCELLENT middle school, as the class sizes are small, the administration is supportive, present, and interactive, and the teaching staff is amazing. Sending my child to the Academy@Shawnee Middle School was the best decision we could have ever made!! Close Quote

Open Quote Although Shawnee isn't in the nicest area of town, the staff do the best they can with the lack of resources that the school receives from the district. Most of the students come from a poverty stricken area ( Portland) but students still seem to have plenty of school spirit. Shawnee is on the rise to be a better school! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
