Student Shadow

Shadow Day Information

How do students know if Scotts Valley High School is a good fit?   For those out-of-district students who are seriously considering Scotts Valley High School (SVHS), a shadow day is an ideal way to find out.  We welcome current 8th-11th students to experience a day in the life of a Scotts Valley Falcon.  Your student will be paired with a current SVHS student host who has similar interests and together, they will attend classes, hang out with other Scotts Valley High School students, and enjoy lunch with friends.

Shadow dates occur on select Mondays in the Fall and Spring for each school year*.  Guest Shadow Students will attend a full day of classes beginning at 7:30 am and ending at 3:00 pm. 

Upcoming Shadow dates TBA

Guest Guidelines

All guest shadow students are under the supervision of the Scotts Valley High School Administration for the duration of their visit and will be required to follow all school and classroom rules as well as our current dress code.

Guest Pass – All guest shadow students are required to wear a guest pass for the duration of their visit on our campus.  Students will receive their guest pass upon check-in

Lunch – All guest shadow students are treated to a pizza lunch on their Shadow Day!  Students who have specific dietary needs will need to provide their own lunch and/or purchase food items from our “Falcon Feeder” lunch room.

Requesting Hosts – Guest shadow students may request a current Scotts Valley High School student to host them for their shadow visit.  While we will do our best to honor each request, it is not a guarantee.  Guests are not permitted to shadow with a sibling currently attending SVHS.

SVHS Ambassador Program

All students at Scotts Valley High School are invited to be a part of our Shadow Day Ambassador Program.

Open House & Expo

SVHS encourages families to join us for our Open House and Expo Night in February.  There will be a lot of information presented and classrooms will be open for visiting.  This is a great opportunity to get a feel for SVHS before registering for a shadow day.
