    Health & Safety: I never felt unsafe at Shelley. I know that bullying is a huge issue, there seems to be a suicide every year, but I was never bullied. I think that there needs to be more done abut the bullying issue in Shelley, we are a small school, so when someone dies like that it has a pretty big effect on the student body. Other than that, I think Shelley is a pretty good school.

    Extracurriculars: There were many things to do after school in Shelley. I decided to work after school most of the time, so I didn't participate in them very much. When I had time though, I was sure to make the most of what was offered!

    Teachers: Most of the teachers I had the opportunity to affiliate with at Shelley Senior High School were incredible. I had one in particular, my senior year that would teach on the students level and get students involved in the lesson. It was the most interactive class I have ever been a part of. Students were able to voice their opinions about the discussed topics openly, without feeling like their voice didn't matter. The teacher was always willing to discuss things and give his opinion, but not in a way that made you feel like you were wrong. He made sure we knew the facts, but it was also important for him to know his students views. He really cared about the students he taught, and it really showed in his class time lectures. Government my senior year was by far the most educational and interactive class I have ever been a part of. I loved it.

    Student Culture & Diversity: I thing our school does very well when there is diversity. Unfortunately, there just isn't much of it. We live in an area where are not many differences. When we have foreign exchange students, they are welcomed into the Shelley Family. We love seeing new people and differences.
