Since the school is small, everyone knows everyone. You would think that's bad but not really. Also the teachers are so friendly, they kind of become your friends too. They care about you and will do what ever they can to help you. The only bad thing is is the lack of school spirit and the limited classes.
I really like going to Shirley, even though it has major flaws. The people here are great, and I really love my friends and boyfriend. The teachers are great; they're really easy to talk to and they are really funny. Everybody here pretty much knows each other since the town is so small and nobody ever really leaves. So many of my peers personally know their teachers either because their parents knew them, they taught their parents, or they babysat them. :) It's pretty cool. Also there aren't really any cliques; everybody is pretty much friends with everybody else. The atmosphere is pretty relaxed, even though there are a lot of rules and there are security cameras everywhere.
