I have been to multiple schools in the Shelby County school system and they aren't half bad. Obviously with every public school you have issues with the quality of education and with the food but the schools I've been to have made up for it.
Great school system teachers actually care about the students. Excellent programs for students with learning issues, sports is good. Need to offer more college materials for minorities.
Shelby County High School has a great public education if you are willing to go beyond regular courses, the outdated building makes it difficult because of the crowded areas that need to be expanded to fit the needs of the growing population of students in Shelby county. It has a very diverse group of students but less opportunities to elevated academics than larger schools.
It is a good district but needs more funding so they have money to buy resources. The teachers are good, however the material could be more challenging for students.
I like that when you walk into the building our principle knows every students First and Last name! Knowing that someone will take time out of their day to make yours just a bit better is a great feeling.
In my experience with Shelby County schools, I believe that they are very organized and diverse with their lesson plans. Although, I would like to see a step up in intensity with lesson plans
I have been in the Shelby County school district since kindergarten. I go to Calera High and I play softball and I am a sophomore. This district is very loving.
There needs be an emphasis on preparing kids for real world things rather than busy work on algebra students will forget months later and never use again.
Shelby County schools have been the best school I have been to. They have great security, are up to date on the newest technology, the classes aren't too big or too small, and each teacher gets to know you on a personal level and becomes a friend and helper.
I’m a student here, there’s currently a pregnant 7th grader, failed drug deals, vaping, bullying, just disgusting. Not a good choice I’m school system
One thing that I like about Shelby County Schools is the number of resources and reliable adults available in the scenario where a student needs outside help or a mentor. I like the variation in curriculum and extracurricular activities so that there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Shelby County Schools has been a great place for me to get my education K-12. It has a great learning environment because I have learned about more than just science, math, English, and history. I would like to see more money go into academic clubs like Scholar's Bowl and Spanish Club though.
I liked teachers and the administrations at all of the schools. Also very clean. I didn’t like the fact we can’t wear leggings because if we could I think girls would not check in as much and if you’re learning while you’re comfy you will actually want to pay attention.
Shelby County Schools are a very close family. The administration is very involved in students every day life.
I look forward to going to school every day! The teachers care about their students. The administration makes sure messages are conveyed clearly and with urgency. The only thing I don't love about our school district is the lack of representation. My school does nothing for black history month and our minority student union hasn't done much at all.
I love attending Shelby County High School. This school offers many rigorous advanced placement courses which allow me the oppurtunity to receive college credit and it offers diverse groups and clubs. I throughly enjoy attending this school.
I mostly liked school, and I happened to learn many life lessons. The only thing that seemed to be lacking was an honest staff at my school. Some teachers got away with too many things, such as lying and holding parties with alcohol.
