I have been at Cedar Shoals for all 4 years. It is extremely intimidating at first, and not just because it is high school. But once you start to make relationships with your peers, your teachers, and even your environment, it is truly another home. I would like for it to become more positively recognized, because we have a lot of amazing things happening within our Cedar Shoals community, but everyone else on the outside only focuses on the bad parts of the school, like the fighting, the drugs, the scandals, etc.
I transferred to Cedar shoals high school my second semester of freshman year. At first I got off to a rough start, because the school was bigger than what I was used to, and I really didn't know many people. As the years went by I grew to love my High school. My friends that I had met, they are family. The teachers are also amazing! I had a bound with some of my teachers that I know will never be broken. Cedar shoals is a place of diversity. You're always going to fit in somewhere. We are One Cedar!
