Sheridan High School Reviews
From my experience at Sheridan High School, it has been very difficult and stressful but has also made my high school experience like any other regular teenager attending school. There's no danger or bullies anywhere like most people think our school has. The teachers and students are all nice and respectful to one another. The only downside is what the teachers are teaching; they don't teach the requirements we need.
Ive been in the Sheridan District since middle school and I really did love it here. The teachers were awesome and everyone was super nice. When we continuated from middle school and went to high school thats when it all fell apart. When our favorite principal left so did all the teachers which made the academics failed. The classes were just randomly assigned to us and the students didn't really enjoy the classes because we weren't able to chose the classes that will be important for us in the future. Some things I'd like to see change is in the future for the classes is the quality of the teachers. They hired people so fast and they didn't even think about what they would be teacher so some aren't even knowing what they are teaching. Also, the classes that are offered should be expanded to more AP and college courses because there are students who need more of a challenge and it will benefit them when they go to college.
As a senior who has attended Sheridan High School since freshman year, I have seen the school at its highest peaks and its lowest. Since freshman year there have been several drastic changes to the staff, school, and students. There are several changes that the students here would like to change about the school. But one of the advantages here are the way everyone knows and treats each other for being such a small school.
