    "Two roads diverged in the woods, one leading to Pleasant Grove and one leading to Sheldon, and I took the road less travelled and that has made all of the difference. Sheldon is an amazing school that has something to offer every student and where every student, not just the conformists, are respected. My high achieving daughter is thriving and feels challenged by the curriculum. Her teachers are responsive to emails and questions and all of her academic teachers provide tutoring several times a week. The counseling staff is great. Because it is a large school, I prefer that my child be in an academy, and there were several excellent academies to choose from. She chose Performing Arts, and it gives her a sense of belonging, and a smaller school within a school. There is tremendous diversity at the school , and many of the students come from the largely working class neighborhoods surrounding the school. Yes, this means there is less parent involvement, but parents are working and there kids aren't entitled. As a parent I appreciate the academics and I don't have to spend my hard earned money on fancy clothes for my daughter to fit in. Take the road less travelled."

    "I would choose this high school again and again if given the choice. My 4 years here were the "best years" I think I could've gotten out of high school. The security and lunch ladies really care about us, staff is fun and they care about you succeeding and the counselors/staff prepare you for college. The organizations and clubs on campus are countless and awesome. I was apart of students helping students, Precision dance/drill team, and yearbook. It is easy to get involved on campus. Very diverse campus - you should see our annual multicultural show! The student-community on campus IS a community. I think SHS strives for a safe campus and it is. Look up SHS basketball - they shine for the athletics department and football games are always so fun. School spirit is high - there is a lot of pride in being a husky... I loved Sheldon - I hope others choose this school as well."

    "This high school has to be one of the best high schools in all of Elk Grove. My daughter went to Sheldon High School and now goes to a UC college. They really help you prepare for college and the teacher and principal involvement is great! I love this high school."

    "Compared to other schools in the area, Sheldon is fairly well-rounded. As you get into the higher level classes, the teachers tend to gravitate towards two extremes: very conservative and very liberal. They are more keen on communicating their personal beliefs through the school curriculum, for better or worse. The campus security is extremely lax concerning electronics. Of the 6 or so security staff on campus, only 1 or 2 will take away your phone. Most teachers won't care either, especially in grades 11 and 12. Behavior issues are intolerable, however. Both teachers and students frown upon immaturity and there aren't any cliques of people that indulge in causing trouble. Everyone is pretty chill. And those that aren't so chill usually disappear before 11th grade. The biggest problem is that non-AP teachers don't take academics as seriously as they should. In some classes, they practically serve you an A on a silver platter. This is especially true in Art, CP English, and any CP Social Studies class. Overall, it's a good social campus with average academics. What you get out is determined by what you put in, not by your grade."
