Shadowing at SHS

Shadowing opportunities for first semester are now CLOSED

Second semester scheduling will begin in February and run through April 13th.

What is the shadowing program?

Sunnyslope High School has a shadowing program available to students who are interested in being a part of our campus for a day.  This is an opportunity for students who are not enrolled at Sunnyslope to see our school climate, and amazing classes.

Who can shadow?

1st semester can be any student that is interested in coming to Sunnyslope and does NOT live within the Glendale Union High School boundaries.  Meaning, if you are not slated for a GUHSD school, then a shadow request form can be submitted and scheduled if availability allows. 

2nd semester can be any student in or out of district that is interested in coming to Sunnyslope.  (if availability allows)

Who does the student shadow?

Students will shadow a Link Club Member.  Link Club is a group comprised of upperclassman.  Their club’s purpose is to “Link” the freshman with the campus and get them involved.  Since they are upperclassmen (juniors and seniors) they understand our campus traditions more and are better equipped to answer questions regarding classes and curriculum. 

Unfortunately, we do not allow requests of students so that all Link Club Members get an equal amount of shadows.  We do try and match based on gender and academic level.  

When can my student shadow?

Scheduling is flexible between full and half days.  We do not schedule on Mondays or the day before a holiday break.  Shadows are limited to only 2 a day, therefore it is first come first serve.
