Anderson-Shiro Junior/Senior High School Reviews
It is a very small school that maintains the importance of empathy that a lot of schools let get out of hand due to the shear number of students. Since it's such a small school the teachers are better able to tend to the students misunderstandings. Although we get a better understanding of the foundation of subjects we do not have too many options for furthering interests, which might be due to the rural formalities the majority of the students tend to stick with. I do feel that everyone who was there to ready me for my future gave whatever they could to do so, and would admit whenever they did not know but gave us leads on where to start for me to find out for myself. This school taught me the literal value of knowledge and that you should always seek out answers where none are found.
I have attended school in the Anderson-Shiro school district since the 4th grade. The atmosphere of the school is very friendly and supportive. Teachers are always willing to give time to help you with work or simply just talk. Administrators do a wonderful job of making the school have a sense of welcoming and security. While walking in the school hallways, you recognize every face because Anderson-Shiro is such a small school. I do wish that it was a larger school so there could be more opportunities available both extracurricular and academic wise. Right now the school only offers honors and level classes, however I wish that they offered AP courses to be more prepared for college.
I love Anderson-Shiro, it is the perfect size for me. I know practically everyone in the school, I've able to play 3 varsity sports since my freshman year, and I've been able to start the U.I.L Film festival team at my school. Along with being class president my freshman and sophomore year. The factually is really supporting! There is a custodian we have named Mrs.Brenda and everytime I see her she has this really big smile on her face and it always makes me smile and brightens my day. I could write an entire book about how much Anderson-Shiro has done for me.
