Shelby County Schools Reviews

I attended Shelby County High School, Columbiana Middle School, and Shelby Elementary. The class sizes were always small, so the teachers really cared and helped in subjects where we struggled. I would like to see updated schools, especially the high school. The building is very outdated and there are often problems with leaks ect.
Review Shelby County Schools
I love how close knit the school is. Everyone knows everybody and treats each other like family. Small home town schools where extra curriculars are supported like never before in any school. Band, football, choir, softball, baseball, basketball, theatre etc. if you go to a Shelby County School you're involved in it all and support every game, concert, or show.
We have just completed our 1st yr in Calera. Our children are at the intermediate school and we have had a great experience so far. The teachers were wonderful and really cared about their students!
