Shelburne is an okay school. I go there. There is a bunch of Bullying and name calling. There are quite a few people who have switched schools. -Linda P.(2018-2019)

Bullying (verbal & physcial) is ignored by most members of the staff. Faculty will not return phone calls to parents. Administration will not communicate with the Parents. My child's schedule was changed without my knowledge in the middle of the school year. Communication and allowing Parental involvement is a foreign concept to this school.
