Sheridan Community Schools Reviews

As a rural school, Sheridan Community Schools is able to cater to its small yet semi-diverse population. Even though it may not have the biggest budgets of the schools in its county, Sheridan accommodates for all its students and their needs. The staff are welcome and are very willing to assist the students academically, athletically, and even mentally. This community avoids the stereotypes of small school student hierarchies as all the students are involved with various clubs and activities. Although they have gone through administrative changes throughout the years, the current administration is very open and have transformed Sheridan into the A-rated school they deserve to be.

Sheridan is a small town, and the school reflects the values often attributed to small towns. Sheridan Community Schools feels like home and teachers generally want to see the students there succeed. Everyone knows everyone, and because of that, nobody is without a group of friends. Most students are engaged with at least one sport or extracurricular activity, but many go above and beyond that and are engaged with multiple clubs and activities around the school. Being a small town does have some drawbacks, such as like of diversity and limited options in terms of what the school is capable of, but Sheridan Community Schools is growing and in a few years could fix most of it's issues.
I have attended this school district all my school years. It is a small rural community where I thrived partly due to less competition to be on extra curricular activities/teams. There was always room to join several clubs, sports, activities. I can be friends with the majority of my class as it was not so big that I did not know people. The teachers were good, with the exceptions of just a few I had in 13 years. Because it is a small school and town, many people know each other and parents can rely on each other to keep an eye on others children, it takes a village.
