James E Shepard Middle School Reviews
I am a former student at Shepard Middle School. I attended Shepard for grades 6-8. I think that Shepard is a great school. One really fantastic thing about Shepard that is great for other students also is that there aren't a lot of students that attend Shepard. By there not being a lot of students in school, this helps the student and teachers form better student-teacher relationships. This also allows teachers better one-on-one time with students to gain a better understanding of what different students may learn. By Shepard being such a smaller school than other middle schools, it also helps the students form better friendships with one another. There is also a great level of diversity and cultural learning. There is also a great general staff at Shepard that makes you feel warm and glad to attend Shepard any time you are there.
