Shelby high school has been pretty good. I have always felt that I am in a safe and secure learning environment and have had opportunities to challenge myself. However, I think the school system as a whole needs to be changed and the class schedules require more attention. More courses need to be offered.ll of the staff are very friendly and understanding. Any teacher or administrator would drop anything to help a student. They know how to make good connections with their students. One thing I would like to change is what classes are available for students to take. Over the past couple of years, the class selection has been diminishing and students feel like they cannot be well rounded. I would like to be able to take a cooking and sewing class or a STEM class

Shelby High school has very impressive students and faculty! Not only is Shelby High School a good academic environment, but it also holds foundation to many extracurricular activities and clubs. For example, new to the high school is the "Be Nice." group. This group was founded to give Shelby High School an attitude change from standing up to bullying to activities focused on self-love and acceptance. The SAHC-HAT group is also a great team that makes Shelby High School a better place. This is a sanctioned group that helps with health awareness with topics ranging anywhere from depression to stress. Shelby High School not only displays a great education level and learning environment, but it also holds support for the students that attend. It is important that school should be a place of acceptance and knowledge, and I believe that Shelby High School is a scholl that does just that.
High school is a hard thing to enjoy, but there are some aspects of Shelby High that I do enjoy. All of the staff are very friendly and understanding. Any teacher or administrator would drop anything to help a student. They know how to make good connections with their students. One thing I would like to change is what classes are available for students to take. Over the past couple of years, the class selection has been diminishing and students feel like they cannot be well rounded. I would like to be able to take a cooking and sewing class or a STEM class. Overall, Shelby is an average school. It excels in some areas, but some areas could be improved.
