I like Shelby-Rising City High School because it is a small school in a small town but it doesn't feel like that. I like how close everyone is. The teachers are great and the school does a great job of preparing students for their futures. I have attended this school since I was in first grade and I have had the best experience. The school also just built all new facilities, which are by far some of the best in the state of Nebraska!

Shelby - Rising City is a school where it is easy to get involved. The staff and adults are very friendly to everyone. My classmates and those in different grades are inviting to everyone and are kind. Both students and staff get along well and students can feel comfortable asking their teachers for help if they do not understand some materials. Many students can get recognized, but some do not even when they are also doing well.
I think Shelby - Rising City High School is a wonderful place to better yourself. It is one of the very few high schools that is truly bully - free. Everyone there supports others and I have teachers who truly keep my attention and teach me real world issues
