Sheffield High School is an amazing school with a passion for learning. I moved to Sheffield when I was a sophomore and I have to say I made the right choice coming to Sheffield. Not only is the environment great, but the teachers take pride in helping their students strive for success. The one thing I most admire about Sheffield is that they do not discriminate anyone coming to the school as a new student. I felt very welcomed and to this day I am still being treated a such. The one thing I would change is the overall AP courses are only about two. We need more AP classes for students to better their education.

I absolutely love my school! I would never want to graduate anywhere else. Some of the teachers tend to teach us well enough to pass the test they are giving, but not to genuinely understanding the content though.
Sheffield High School is a great learning environment. The classes are challenging and are prepping you for college which I like. I would personally like to see more clubs added to the school, more honor societies, and more field trips.
