Hello, I really think shepard should have more extracurricular activities for the students. As a former student I think it would have been alot beter with an elective, and a real elective not just band. I still talk to students @ shepprad snd they tell me that they are sick of having 2 lang. arts classes and want real electives. I think it is better for them to have some. Also they should have more dances and activities. If one student gets in trouble the whole shool shouldnt have to pay for it. That student that was in trouble should be excluded from it, instead of having the whole school sufer. Sheppard may have a bad reputation when it comes to student rights. They never get to choose what they want at the school. the school hardly ever listens. I recomend a good counsoler I know for a fact there is alot of drama at that school and I would appriciate it if Sheppard Middle School gave my friends that go there now better things so the school wont be known as a bad oneSincerly, A former student<3
