Nice small(er) classes, makes it easier to lear and get help needed. Most teachers are excellent and teach wonderfully. Only thing that bothered me was the fact that advanced students weren’t given many choices. Advanced classes interfere with required classes limiting choices. Other than that enjoyed my time there.

I loved Shepherd Schools because the teachers are friendly and extremely helpful. I especially love the principal and counselor because they care about each and every student that attends or attended Shepherd. I didn't have many friends during high school but the teachers made it easier for me by listening, giving me advice, and helping with more than school. I also love the secretary who retired this year because she also made high school a lot more fun. I can't say enough about Shepherd. Even after I graduated I still feel welcome and the teachers show that they want to see me succeed and will help in every possible way. There are several activities and fun things to do at Shepherd like cheerleading, sports, and clubs. Two of the teachers even put on a trip each year for at least one of their classes. I went on both trips and absolutely loved them both. I love Shepherd and will never forget the Shepherd staff for everything they helped me with and will help me with.
The only thing that is really great about Shepherd Highschool is the academic opportunties. Spots aren't great, and the club opportunties are only good if someone's parents aren't running the clubs. Overall, I'd say Shepherd, isn't that great of a school altogther.
