    "Shepherd Jr. High is the best school in the nation. The staff there are kind and respectful, they take the time to understand what you need to get good grades. The staff helped me when I was put in a math class that was too easy. The teachers there are funny, unfortunately the funniest of them all retired after the school year ended in 2010. The social studies teachers take time to explain history and bring things in that are from the time period or replicas. We would often watch videos about the time period and write notes about it.The math teachers are excellent role models for students everywhere and would take the time to make power point presentations to help students understand the subjects."

    "i am a student at shepherd and have gone there for about two years. i have a 3.9 average but that doesn't mean i enjoy this school. in fact this is a very unsatisfactory school. there are many cliques and there are at least three fights a week on school grounds. it takes the teachers at lunch at least five to eight minutes that a fight has broke out. i also find the teachers to not be helpful. they instead just expect that you already understand and don't take the time to go over subjects. another thing i don't enjoy is how it feels like a jail cell in each room because there isn't any windows."

    "this school is not a great experience. the teachers are rude, and most of the staff is disrespectful. the secretary is extremely disrespectful, and has an attitude. it does not have windows, and there are cameras all over the school now, providing absolutely no privacy. i've been at this school since 7th grade and i am now in 9th grade, and every second at this school was miserable. i do not recommend this school."

    "I attend Shepherd Junior High and am now a freshman. The school has it's ups and downs, like any other. I am on Spiritline, was Student Council President, involved in Advanced Dance, and am in accelerated classes. I have had some very good teachers, but compared to a friend from Stapely, she has a much better situation with teachers, but not with the students. Shepherd is full of some very good kids with good work ethic, and the staff is constantly trying to improve the school. With budget cuts, the school is doing the best they can. With that being said, Shepherd is one of the best schools in Mesa."
