Northern Local School District Reviews

I haven’t had a great experience at sheridan high school. I have enjoyed most of my teachers and almost all of the teachers I’ve had are quite passionate about their job. Sheridan’s academics are good for being a school in the middle of a cornfield but could definitely improve. There is zero diversity at this school and most people in the community are very closed-minded. Anything that is considered taboo is very much looked down upon at this school. There are not many genuine people here, but I suppose that’s everywhere.

I liked going to high school and knowing all of my classmates and the classroom size was perfect for learning. I also enjoyed the variety of classes that were available to us, it has prepared me for college. The best part about our school is the community involvement and how everyone supports each other. I think our school could improve on it’s safety and how they plan to prevent an emergency situation.
My experience as an middle school student at Sheridan, was great. All staff members in the middle school, are very cooperative, nice, funny and overall great people.
