Shelbyville Senior High School is a wonderful school. This is my first year here, 2019-2020. So far the transition has been absolutely wonderful and the teachers are ready to assist you. They enforce wonderful rules to ensure we focus on our education. They also have excellent resources when it comes to searching for things. Elaborating on the teachers some more, there are multiple teachers who will provide assistance for personal life help when it comes to things like college, problems with personal things, jobs, letters of recommendation, etc. A wonderful school and I couldn’t recommend it more!

I liked the close knit community that Shelbyville High School offered me! The teachers and administration really do care about you there! But I really missed the lack of diversity in Shelbyville, I know the location isn’t ideal, but I did miss that!
My high school wasn't the best, which is okay, some high schools aren't. Why my school wasn't the best for me was because I was sheltered when it came to growing up. So I wasn't as you would say normal like the other students which caused a lot of bullying for me. For a school that states they are against bullying and doing everything that can for the victim, it was a lie. This school put me in a hard place and I'm lucky to have came out of it like I did. I graduated with a Core 40 Diploma and that's all that mattered to me at the time.
