  • I love Sheffield, I have been going there since I was in Kindergarten an I am currently in the 9th grade which is my first year of High School. The reason I love SHeffield, is because they have always helped me with whatever I need. They have always found a way for me to play the sports I wanted to, which was like every single one if them lol. And they helped me with my grades, and even after I had knee surgery in the 8th grade. I think Sheffield has helped me an everyone else become who we are. And I just think that SHeffield is a really great school, an I hope it continues to be this way through out the future!



    Sincerely:
