Overall, I would say I've had a decent experience with Shell Lake Junior/Senior High School. The teachers is very caring for their students and are always willing to work with them if they have any issues understanding the content. My one complaint about Shell Lake is their administration and school board. They are very disorganized which leads to many problems not only for staff, but for the students as well. However, they have been making some recent changes to their administration staff, and things seem to be moving in the right direction.

I have attended Shell Lake since I was in Kindergarten. At this school, I have been given the help I needed when it was necessary. The teachers are always willing to help someone and always make time for their students outside of class. However, classes are short, and there usually is not time to get what needs to be done finished in class, I would like to have a block schedule.
For a small school, Shell Lake is great! Since there are a limited amount of teachers, oftentimes the same teachers will have all the classes in a subject. For example, the same teacher has all the biology and chemistry classes, and a students may have the same teacher for all four years of high school. I found this as very helpful to learning, since I already knew their teaching styles, and they already knew how I learned, going into upper level classes.
