I love that I got to send my children to a "small town" school. We are referred to as "children of the corn". The school did a video last year about what it's like to be a General (mascot). They interviewed dozens of kids and the overwhelming theme was family.

I think I would change the level of academics. I would love to see more focus on the future of technology. Sheridan is no where in the ballpark on technology and science like other schools. Sheridan focuses on agriculture and sports. It is the culture, yes, but it would be amazing to see a shift toward the STEM movement.

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 find that the teachers all care and are passionate about what they do. The staff try to give equal opportunities to each student, but I find that the arts are always neglected. The atmosphere that the school gives off is that the arts are not important.
