What i really like about Shepherd High School are the teachers. The teachers in Shepherd High School know what they are doing and actually care for the students. The administration also helps the students have a better education for their future careers. One thing I would change of this school is the soccer team. They should add it back.

While it has its issues, it is one of the best high schools in Isabella County. The school is safe, typically has good teachers, and prepares students for a successful future.
The academics just don't seem to be on par like the surrounding school. We've academically failed 4 years running as of this year, also the staff is really rude this year and the smallest things get turned into a big deal which is leading to a lot of kids being sent to ISS even DAEP.
