Shelley High School is very much a small school, but, honestly, I love small schools! To me, small schools raise big successes. The reason why is simply because small schools teach students the importance of being creative and getting by with small room to work with. Along with that, it is immensely great to get to know a good portion of the other students! On the downside, though, the school doesn’t receive a very large budget, so we don’t fully get the experience of working with some of the more crucial resources that we would have to know for the real world.

Shelley High School has a great English department and about half of the math department is great as well. If you are self-motivated and push yourself, you can learn how to study well and earn a lot of credits for college. The bad part about this school is the atmosphere. The way some of the teachers interact with students-seeming to become a high schooler themselves-is in no way discouraged by administration. The focus at this school is on sports and popularity, but like anywhere you go, you can make what you want out of it.
They care to much about football and boys sports sometimes. They totally forget any team that is made up of all girls. The acedemics offered are pretty ehh. Many of the teachers to not care at all and are just trying to get a paycheck. Many of them are also coaches for the schools teams so they are often gone. There are also many teachers that don’t even show up but don’t get a sub for their class or show up 15 minutes late. The building itself is very disgusting. The ceiling always leaks, the carpets are stained, and the classrooms really need to be updated. And yet do they do that, no, they spend thousands on new weight equipment, new gym floors and new stuff for the football and boys basketball players. This school is pretty below average. One thing good about it though is the school spirit. All of the students are in this crappy situation together so they try to make the best of it. They try to make the school seem better than it actually is.
