Open Quote This website 'ranking' is disappointing, and not accurate if you ask the locals who care about education. Shelby High has great teachers, school board, parental involvement, and high goals- which are met by students, just not the 'majority'. Although demographic averages score SHS low here, these stats do not reflect the above average component of SHS. I went there, as did my 3 children. Full load of AP courses offered the college-bound component of SHS does excellent: many scholarships to competitive universities, high SAT's scores, and high expectations from teachers. Also- great arts programs: Theater is Broadway quality, and music (orchestra & band) are excellent as well. The cream of the crop sector is not reflected in these scores which are skewed low as an overall score. Good portion of students score in 4-5-plus GPA. f your child wants to be challenged- Shelby High is a great school, and with enough peer/parent support to steer them wherever they want to go in life. This is the county seat school, so low-income increases have blurred the good reputation if only number here are used to evaluate the school. Too much data left out! Many clubs, great football program (state champs several times) etc. make this school one to be proud of, and to be noticed by excellent colleges, even Ivy league.
I suggest parents ask locals in the know, rather than use this website as a deterrent as far as moving into this district. Shelby 'inner city' schools are always great, even tho' demographics have altered in the county. They 'city' schools have had a long history of monetary support (the best facilities- swimming pool, state of the art theater), much more positive is present than these few categories of ranks suggest.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
