I would choose this high school again and again if given the choice. My 4 years here were the "best years" I think I could've gotten out of high school. The security and lunch ladies really care about us, staff is fun and they care about you succeeding and the counselors/staff prepare you for college. The organizations and clubs on campus are countless and awesome. I was apart of students helping students, Precision dance/drill team, and yearbook. It is easy to get involved on campus. Very diverse campus - you should see our annual multicultural show! The student-community on campus IS a community. I think SHS strives for a safe campus and it is. Look up SHS basketball - they shine for the athletics department and football games are always so fun. School spirit is high - there is a lot of pride in being a husky... I loved Sheldon - I hope others choose this school as well.

This high school has to be one of the best high schools in all of Elk Grove. My daughter went to Sheldon High School and now goes to a UC college. They really help you prepare for college and the teacher and principal involvement is great! I love this high school.

Excellent in communication, safety, and education. The teachers encourage parent inclusion and work well with students.

Compared to other schools in the area, Sheldon is fairly well-rounded. As you get into the higher level classes, the teachers tend to gravitate towards two extremes: very conservative and very liberal. They are more keen on communicating their personal beliefs through the school curriculum, for better or worse. The campus security is extremely lax concerning electronics. Of the 6 or so security staff on campus, only 1 or 2 will take away your phone. Most teachers won't care either, especially in grades 11 and 12. Behavior issues are intolerable, however. Both teachers and students frown upon immaturity and there aren't any cliques of people that indulge in causing trouble. Everyone is pretty chill. And those that aren't so chill usually disappear before 11th grade. The biggest problem is that non-AP teachers don't take academics as seriously as they should. In some classes, they practically serve you an A on a silver platter. This is especially true in Art, CP English, and any CP Social Studies class. Overall, it's a good social campus with average academics. What you get out is determined by what you put in, not by your grade.

It's my first year here, and I think the school is great. The teachers really try to help prepare you for your future, and the amount of clubs and activities is amazing. The band is top-notch, and the school offers you classes no other school does.

The classes offered at Sheldon are absolutely great to the point, I wish I was in high school again. It is one of the safest campus'. Sheldon is one of the biggest melting pots of cultures I have seen in a high school, what is more amazing is the kids have no real issues with eachother, they do what they can to understand differences in each culture and appreciate the likeness' and the differences. Sheldon rocks

I am now a soph. at sheldon, and I like the school alot, I like that there is more of a var. of students than there is at valley, also alot of guitarists, like me, also the kids are cool, I've only been there since jan and already I have lots of new friends, they remind of some my other friends at valley that I've known since elem. school. And I like the teachers too like my art teacher I had this last year, Mr. spaulding, the reason why I say this, is that in my first week he was imp. w/ my playing and since then we've traded our knowl. of music to each other, in all I like sheldon and I plan grad. from there.

This may not be the greates school location-wise, but academically there is so much to offer. Programs tailored to certain career fields and special courses make the school a great learning environment.

I love my school. It may not be the best but the activities they offer make it so fun. For example, the animation class is great and not found any where else, there is a great new engineering teacher who is making things very cool, and a video game class that nutures those who love to play. Its great here, and even though it may not be the best in academics, the extracirriculars offer make it the fun enviroment high school should be.

It think this school is pretty great, because of diversity and test scores and the school really has a great design to it, and also it's clean.

The school has a lot of great teachers. THey have many classes that are not offered by any other school. All the teachers are very supportive and patient in helping you pass the class. My best experience in sheldon high school was my last year of high school. My teachers helped me pass all 3 of my AP tests.

If you have a student that is above average, he/she will be catered too at Sheldon. However, students that might need some extra help, are lost in the huge crowds at Sheldon. Not easy to get in touch with counselors. All of Elk Grove Unified School District needs to stop pushing college prep on everyone, there are many that will never go on to college, but what are they doing for them?

It's not a great environment for those who need individualized attention. With that being said, I liked the school because they offered academies and lots of different clubs. One thing that I saw a lot was cliques, lack of parental involvement, and counselors. There is a lot of AP courses to choose from but students just have to find a niche. I recommend students getting involved with Student Government, Mr. Grivel teaches a lot of life lesson I take with me today.

I'm not really impressed with Sheldon High School. The acedemics are just average. Parent involvement is really low.

The school is clean, nice looking and spacious. The teachers are good, but lack enough diversity and that negatively impacts diverse kids. The school is very organized with lots of activities. There events are well done and many. My child is learning very well. For kids who may struggle there are a lot of opportunities for help. Overall, I highly recommend this school!

Sheldon is fine except it is too large. Too many students, traffic is a major issue. The teachers try but there are just too many students to keep track of.

Sheldon High School is a college prep school. For children with learning disabilities, a non college prep school is hard enough. Most teachers do not take time to work with the students who really need help. Want to get your child in a special eduation class? Good luck with that one. The counselors seem to be the only ones who offer some sort of support. There is a stellar perfoming arts program, music program, and some of the sports teams are wonderful. There are many talented art students that attend this school. Some times administration focuses on the small problems (tank tops and short shorts) rather than focus on the larger problems like drug use and gang violence. Its not the best school, but it is definately better than some public schools.

Great arts program, with high quality instructors. Definitely a great choice for anyone interested in drama, music, photography, dance, animation, painting, or drawing. Clean campus as well, and in a nice location.

Posted January 24, 2005

The block schedule is difficult for many to keep up with. The school is very challenging. It is great for college prep however it is very difficult for many. It is difficult for many to succeed without outside intervention (tutoring). Extracurriciular activities are encouraged however they conflict with the opportunities for one on one help. Teachers seem slow to respond to individual needs.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
