Shelby County Schools Profile

October 13, 2019 7:40 pm Published by Comments Off on Shelby County Schools Profile

Everyone knows the old adage about the importance of location when it comes to real estate. Yet it’s not just about proximity to shopping, dining, attractions and similar features. It’s also about inclusion in excellent school districts. Even non-parents take the quality of the school district into consideration when looking at homes, as good schools are good for resale value, as well. For residents of Willow Branch, they’re fortunate to have access to some outstanding Chelsea AL schools that are part of Shelby County School District.

The schools for Willow Branch are Forest Oaks Elementary, Chelsea Middle School, and Chelsea High School. From county-wide initiatives to a variety of excellent programs at individual schools, there’s a lot to like about Shelby County schools.

For example, the All-Pro Dad Chapters launched in elementary and intermediate schools across the district last month. All-Pro Dad, a division of the national nonprofit organization Family First, has been built on a football theme and features more than 50 NFL players, coaches, and alumni who speak out on the importance of being a good father. Importantly, the group emphasizes “father figures”, as not every child has a father at home. They encourage stepdads, foster parents, grandparents, and even neighbors to get involved. Six times a year, they meet for breakfast and informational meetings with the children. Hundreds of fathers showed up at the first breakfast this year. This parent involvement initiative hopes to create meaningful and positive bonds with children and their dads, which studies show lead to greater academic achievement.

Another recent event was the Connect 2 Careers, hands-on career fair sponsored by the Shelby County Chamber. The two-day event was designed to help students better understand the intricacies of careers available to them in Shelby County. They learned about a range of high-demand, high-wage, career opportunities in fields such as engineering, public service, banking and finance, healthcare, construction, and more.

If Chelsea AL schools are one of the priorities in your search for a new home, the Willow Branch community is an excellent choice. With great schools and easy access to them, you can feel confident that your children will be receiving an excellent, well-rounded education, no matter the grade level. Contact Scotch Homes today to learn more about the stunning homes they build and the benefits of being part of the Shelby County school district.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
