Shepherd Jr. High is the best Jr. High in Mesa! Both of my children went there and they both loved it. We never had problems except for one teacher.
Both of my children attended this school. The band program was great, sports programs were awesome, and the teachers were superb.
The teachers are good, the principal doesn't show respect toward parents or students from our subdivision. Were the highest minority and lowest income bracket than the majority of shepherds students.
My child absolutly adores this school. She has had no problem what-so-ever with drugs, hazing, or other school violence. The staff is kind and considerate of my child.
The only reason Stapley is 'clicky' is because of the strong religious background that many of the students possess. At Stapley there tends to be no separation of church and state, which poses a problem for some students. Honestly, it has very little to do with the teachers and staff; instead it has all to do with 'the church.'
My son attended Stapley before and the staff is much nicer and more helpful at Shepherd. Stapley is also very clicky, I've had three kids attend that school and everyone of them had trouble. My son has excelled so much this last year which I think is mainly because of the school/teachers. Thank you Shepherd Jr. High!
