I came to SHS the second marking period of my senior year. I was surprised how incredibly easy it was to talk to my teachers and how much fun i had learning. My teachers constantly were keeping things intresting and I always knew i was able to come to the teachers or staff and talk. They always were extremely helpful. The wellness center staff is also amazing. I have to say I am very blessed to have been able to graduate from SHS as a part of the class of 2012. I learned more in the time i was there then at my old school in 2 years. The whole staff is dedicated.
