SHS doesn't value the education of its students. The facilities, textbooks, etc. are falling apart, and the teachers don't care about their students'' success.
It is a nice school that has a bunch of nice people. With lots of clubs and activities.
The education in this school is not the best. The available after school activities are only usefull to sports or band members, and has no clubs,math club, french club, etc.
Review Shelton High School. Reviews should be a few sentences in length. Please include any comments on:
- Quality of academic programs, teachers, and facilities
- Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities
