Shelbyville School Reviews

Shelbyville ISD is, unfortunately, eating itself alive. Frequent staff changes are accompanied by incompetent staff. For example, a gym teacher is assigned to a business class, which she claims she has no knowledge of. This leads to issues with teaching, as most "teaching" is actually just a worksheet given to students without any actual instruction on the subject. Another issue with the school is the way discipline is handled. When disciplinary action is taken, it is often extreme, and students are threatened by a school resource officer. However, school administrators fail to discipline students who frequently cause problems, despite there being a "three-strike" rule implemented by the principal. Shelbyville ISD has the potential to be a great school, as most of its teachers are very good at their job. If the school administration handled things better, this school could be very successful.

The faculty for the most part are very good at teaching their subjects. There is a strong desire to do well in UIL events. Availability of computers is low but safety of the students and staff is a high priority
In all honesty, this school is not very efficient when it comes to student safety. We only have one school policeman who is with us throughout the day, while an older man comes and checks the campus once the school day is over. Everyone is on the same campus: high school students, elementary students, and junior high students. I feel that needs to change because of the problem with bullying. I feel that younger kids should not be around us older kids. We have only one nurse and she is in the elementary building, so us high school students have to walk all the way to the elementary in order to receive the aid we would possibly need.
