Shelley Senior High School Reviews

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.
Review Shelley Senior High School
Shelley High School is an overall fantastic program. Like any high school, it may seem pointless, and even some would say, "hell". But I truly am a firm believer in karma and that you reap what you sow. My first year at Shelley, I considered to be awful, but I was looking about it all the wrong way. I hated high school because I didn't put myself out there, become involved, and hung out with people who did the same. The moment I became a member of various clubs and groups, I loved high school. Shelley is a great place filled with so many opportunities, but only if you are willing to do a little searching for your goals and hobbies within it.
Most of the teachers I had the opportunity to affiliate with at Shelley Senior High School were incredible. I had one in particular, my senior year that would teach on the students level and get students involved in the lesson. It was the most interactive class I have ever been a part of. Students were able to voice their opinions about the discussed topics openly, without feeling like their voice didn't matter. The teacher was always willing to discuss things and give his opinion, but not in a way that made you feel like you were wrong. He made sure we knew the facts, but it was also important for him to know his students views. He really cared about the students he taught, and it really showed in his class time lectures. Government my senior year was by far the most educational and interactive class I have ever been a part of. I loved it.
