Shelbyville Central High School Reviews

I enjoyed the small town experience with friends who are genuine and community oriented. The teachers are willing to help students who need help and show a desire to excel! I loved that there were students from a wide array of backgrounds. Most of the teachers and administration are local and can help graduates find a job, create a good resume and help with applications. The standard classes are just that - standard with a basic instruction model. Also, the students can be a bit clicky and stand offish if you are not 'one of them'. Because it is a large school, one can become lost in the crowd so you have to create good relationships with teachers.

As a senior now at SCHS I have been blessed to say that I have had a great learning environment. I really enjoy knowing that our staff try to take part and be more involved in school. For example, not only does our staff try to improve on our education, but they also try to improve and make of importance our sports, extra curricular activities, and our school spirit. I also enjoy how SCHS is a unique school because it is full of diversity in where one can meet so many people and learn from. Just as any school, I believe there are things that we can improve on and are working on, for example getting our graduation rate up and getting students motivated for their education. Overall, SCHS is great school and has a great learning environment.
My experience attending Shelbyville High School is better than average. The academics are higher than usual, and we support anyone involved in sports and fine arts. I wish there were not as many cliques, but everyone has their own friend group.
