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!

I have absolutely loved Sheldon. I transferred over and the staff was completely welcoming from the start. The people here are really nice, and super friendly. There are no cliques which is super awesome! The teachers are super helpful too, I feel like they actually want to see their students succeed. I have gotten so many resources available to me since coming to Sheldon and I'm really thankful for everything I've gotten here. The athletics are awesome, and not to mention there are a bunch of clubs to choose from. My overall experience here has been super cool here.
Sheldon High School is one of the most diverse high schools in the Elk Grove Unified District. I believe this is why many students love this school so much. We have everyone from different ethnicities, religion, and language all in one campus. Everyone is different and it's great to see a school that has their own uniqeness. With all that is going on in the world each person at out school is able to embrace their different backgrounds and cultures, not being scared to do so and be applauded for it! Being a senior at Sheldon High has shown me to embrace you because their is no one like us.
