Sheldon High School Reviews

The school is an incredibly diverse environment in which to learn and grow as a student. Over the course of my time here, I met teachers who were willing to go above and beyond for their students, spending hours aiding students with their academic needs. The school provides a large variety of classes and academies (including Biotech, ArtsWork, FFA, and more), allowing students to expand upon their unique interests on campus. Sheldon High provides a welcoming community which gives students the opportunity to make connections with people from varying cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. The staff on campus are helpful and tend to go out of their way to make sure students are comfortable and safe.

This school is extremely diverse! Everyone is very accepting of each other, making a comfortable environment for all. The teachers are great and you can tell they really care about their students.
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
