Sheridan High School has amazing teachers and excellent culture. The programs and curriculum for advanced students is top notch. They passed a millage increase so they will be updating their facilities and adding even more opportunities for students. We are fortunate to have a great school in a small town. Love it!

Sheridan High School was academically narrow. There were limited offered subjects outside of the standard English, math, history, and science. There was also a clear favoritism shown to certain students by the administration, specifically about dress code. Despite these things, the few extracurricular activities offered were delightful.
I'm a senior at Sheridan High School right now and I've only been here since my Junior year. I love it here! They show so much spirit for their sports, band, and dance team. My grades went up and I have made so amazing friendships. Something they could improve on is renovations and having updated equipment. In all, I love this school and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an excellent district.
