Sheldon High School Reviews

Sheldon high School is a school that connects many different cultures through diversity. This is the most diverse school in California and we embrace it from academics to social events. There are constantly rallies, games, events that happen at least once a week. Sheldon also recognizes academic achievement and awards students that have a 3.75 GPA or above every semester. My experience at this school has changed my stance on high school . I have made many different friends who all have different cultures but share a similar goal. The goal to achieve success and work harder by challenging themselves through honors or AP classes. I still have one more year left of being in high school and Sheldon has already created memories that I will never forget

Sheldon High School was my home for the past 4 years. It's where I met some of the most amazing people where our friendships will last forever. The staff at Sheldon High School is very dedicated to helping their students and community grow as a whole and leading kids to a brighter future. They are self-less and positive role models when it comes to teaching in the classroom. Students at Sheldon are very special. Our school is filled with so much diversity and they work hard to embrace that by putting on a multi-cultural assembly every year so hundreds of kids get to freely represent their cultures with pride. Our academy programs are unbelievable and very helpful for kids seeking career in Biotechnology, Equitas, Building Trades, and more.
It’s a really good school with great teachers! I enjoy the relationships and the trust I have built with my teachers. It’s a relief that I went to this school. I wanted to go to a school where I can be open and not be judged, I currently attend one, obviously, it’s Sheldon High. I hope to have a smooth next 4 years in this school. Freshman year has already been great so far!
