South Shelby teachers have a very close bond with their students making it feel like a second home. You know you can always go talk to a teacher no matter who it is. In addition to the at home feel we have great math, English, and history teacher. However, are science department is lacking a little bit but that is common for rural schools.

I love that South Shelby has a great student to teacher ratio. All of the teachers, and staff care about the students that go to South Shelby, and want them to succeed in whatever they plan to do. The teachers are there for students whether its with academics, or even personal problems that a student might be struggling with at home. Everyone feels welcome.
South Shelby is unique in that everyone can find somewhere to fit in. We have so many organizations and opportunities to get involved! But what makes us truly is South Shelby's school pride. Every club gets recognized, not just the athletic ones, and our staff is so incredible with working with organizations to make sure students are staying responsible while remaining involved.
