Welcome to Shelby Eastern Schools!
Located in the eastern-most portion of Shelby County, our district stretches from the northern edge of the county all the way down to the southern edge of the county, and it encompasses the towns of Morristown and Waldron.
Each of our campuses (Morristown and Waldron) offer programming from Pre-K through 12th grade. We offer a full range of services for students with all types of individualized learning needs. Our teachers work hard to provide students with the most up to date teaching practices and are constantly looking for new ways to engage students in the learning process. Our blended learning environment provides students with the opportunity to learn to utilize the latest technology, while at the same time developing collaborative relationships with their peers and our faculty. Both of our high schools offer a wide variety of advanced coursework and dual credit learning opportunities. Our partnership with Blue River Career Programs affords our students the opportunity to explore a career in more than a dozen skilled trades and vocational areas.
We are small schools doing big things, and we are thrilled you allow us to work with your families to help educate them.
