I loved attending Shelby County Schools, more specifically Calera schools. We have great administrators and teachers who often got brought up to work for the board. Everyone is so helpful and caring and it makes the high school experience very enjoyable.

Great! I hope to see more involved teachers and hands-on assignments, but the graduation rates are absolutely amazing
It has been great. Have not had many problems accept with the High School I went to. They were not really willling to work with students who needed a little extra help, or who weren’t as able as others. My brother has extreme ADHD, and when he went there, he always got in trouble. My parents tried to work with the school to improve the problem, but they weren’t willing.
