    "There are many great things about Shelby High, the teachers are kind and helpful, the food is pretty good, the campus isn't too big so it isn't hard to find your classes, the sports programs are excellent, the foreign language department is great, and the preforming arts and music programs are outstanding! They also offer many opportunities to get connected to colleges by taking students to a college fair every year, they also offer financial aid for everything from lunch to the SAT, they even help with the college application process. It's a very diverse school and it allows students to meet and make friends with people they usually wouldn't talk to. I honestly believe that there is something for everyone at Shelby High."

    "Shelby High School shows Lion Pride all the time. We are focused in what we do, whether it be chorus or football. I have changed for the good while being here, and I wouldn't want to go to any other high school."

    "I would like to say that I enjoyed my time at Shelby High School. However, my experience at Shelby High School wasn't enjoyable. Many things in this school can be changed, such as the constant bullying of others, the disrespect that the students show to their teachers, and the violence that exists in this school. I honestly can't remember a year when I didn't see at least six fights. In addition, Shelby High School only focuses on football, which is a big issue because instead of having the football players become well educated, they are allowed to have 2.0's because the GPA for this school is extremely lower than others. This school is only based on how far the football team can go, instead of getting the overall test scores up, which is not how a high school should run. Overall, Shelby High School is not a place that I would recommend for any child to go to."

    "I really liked Shelby High school because of the pride that it instills in its students to be the home of the Golden Lions. However, I dislike that their main focus is sports rather than academics. It seemed as if sports players got things handed to them where as non athletes had to work for everything they received."
