  • When my boys play baseball and basketball at these other schools, it makes me very proud of our facilities. Bedford County, espicially Shelbyville, should be proud as well.

  • I agree, Shelbyville does have some great facilities compared to other schools in our district and it is nice to have that advanatge.

    I have one question though . . .whose idea was it to have a different color brick used on the new high school addition. I love the new addition and especially the front because it makes the school seem so much classier but the contrast in brick colors kind of stands out and doesnt look good at all.

  • I know I am very proud of our school ( Cascade)It is always very clean and always looks nice. The students show pride in the school. I love football season and going to the games. Now when you pass the school at night and they are playing Baseball and the lights shine so bright . It makes me feel good all over. I am always very proud to say my son goes to Cascade...I know I have butted heads once or twice with them..But I have never lost any respect for our school..that is part of life..You run into a brick wall sometimes over something..But we always find the door to get thru that brick wall..THANK YOU Bedford county for giving all our children wonderful Schools to go to..

  • Community School is REALLY overcrowed! I don't know about the other schools.

    Probably because alot of the old farmers died or couldn't keep the farm up and the property was turned into yet another subdivision. Lots are for sale everywhere down there! Esp. around the Rover area.

  • I think the brick not matching is from manufacturers discontinuig colors so much. The SCHS was built in 1978 and Im sure they discontinued that color brick a few years later.

  • It doesn't seem like SCHS has been there that long. Time sure flies by..
