    Overall Experience: I went to Shelley my entire high school career and I loved it. Almost every teacher there cared about all their students and not just a few individuals. I liked that it was small so that all students could get the attention that they deserve. I graduated with around 350 students in my class and I still keep in contact with a huge amount of them. I liked how if disciplinary action did need to be placed on a student they would enforce the rules so that no other student could be harmed by the other students actions. They had a wide varieties of classes that I could take. I feel like I was able to take every class that I wanted to be in.

    Sports & Fitness: Our school favors boy sports a lot more than girl sports and they fund them more. Everyone supports football and boys basketball, but other than that, no one cares about the other sports.
