James E. Shepard Middle School Reviews

1 review
My experience at James E. Shepard was interesting. I say this because I've had positive and negative times. I was bullied in 6th and 7th grade. One thing that I would change about this Middle School is that I would develop new clubs and organizations to get the students involved in so that if the students feel alone, they would always have a group or club to go to to feel welcomed. Also, I would better prepare students for high school and to warn them of the temptations and strong influences that comes with being a incoming freshman. Shepard also taught me the key concept of individuality. It taught me that even though other may try to fit in, always think of yourself as being the outcast because being the outcast allows you to make decisions best for you and not who others expect or want you to be.
