I have been a student in the Shelton School District since I started pre-school. In my time I have seen a lot change in the schools as I have passed through them. Personally I have enjoyed my time and believe that my teachers have not only taught me academics but also many life lessons. A few things I would like to see change in the school district would be more clubs and activities for students at all school levels. So far I have seen more clubs and sports come out, but I believe that more would promote more students to stat positive and have their own activity to stay busy.

Ive gone to shelton high school for the past 2 years now. ive enjoyed the most part of it but when it comes to teachers teaching and sports there not handled very well. Our algebra 2 teachers are having more than 30% of kids fail their classes because the kids don’t understand what their teaching. Sports teams are very good! The shelton bowling team doesnt have a bowling alley so we have to use a bus/van to drive up there every day to practice, we all wish they would put in another bowling alley in soon! We had one until it burnt down in 2007
This school is wonderful and a great experience to have at a high school! I have made many memories and friendships with people from all around the world.
