In the Sheldon Community School District, I always felt important to my teachers. My teachers were always pushing me to do my best by challenging me. Because of the smaller class sizes, I was able to develop relationships with a large number of classmates. Also, I was able to try a wide variety of activities and build relationships through them.

I enjoyed the people met and the relationships made. I also enjoyed the amount that teachers and faulty cared for and how much they did to help the students succeed. There are many different things that are available to be involved in from freshman to senior year. There are activities for all kinds of people, things such as sports, speech, the musical, jazz/show choir, and clubs of all different kinds.
I like how most of the faculty is very helpful with helping to get students to where the want to be. Our counselor is very helpful with all the seniors trying to help them find scholarships and helping them decide where they want to go for school and what they want to major in. Some of the english teachers will help with essays that you write for a different class to help you get the grade that one would want.
