I loved how the teachers are always so sweet and welcoming every single day! I don’t really remember a time where there was any bullying or huge fights that would happen. All of the students seemed pretty mature and respectful.

Shelbyville High School was the typical high school experience. I never had to worry about my safety on the school's campus. However, there were days when the roads were very slick for many people and we still had school, which is was caused me to chose 4 stars instead of 5 on the Safety rating. Athletics are very well supported. The fine arts also receive decent support, but do inevitably fall to the side of the sports.
Ever since the new principal came things have been turning around. Much more professional environment and more opportunities to get involved in school activities. Although I feel there could be more clubs and activities or a more streamlined way to be able for the students to start them. I love the way the school is now but there are still many things I wish to see the administration do in the future.
