The teachers are compassionate, and committed to fostering high standards and quality learning experiences for the students. The parents are active participants in the learning process of their child's education.
Sheridan has high academic standards as well as excellent discipline. The teachers are the best!
I love Sheridan school because there is no other school with a team that supports students and families like Sheridan. Every student is not perfect, but every student at Sheridan knows that the are loved and that we expect them to achieve.
This school is role model for all schools in SFUSD. The staff, students, and parents mutually respect each other. Everyday, staff members laboriously plan lessons to create a quality learning environments for students. Students are held to high expectations and teachers guide them there.
Great teachers, great administration, great staff. This nurturing school assures values and respect are part of everyday learning.
Sheridan Elementary has exemplary teacherswho maintain high expectations, an outstanding surrounding supportive community, engaged and active parents and curious, eager to learn, dynamic students! When you walk into this school you can feel the energy, excitement, and learning that is happening in every classroom. The Principal and staff truly care about each and every child and there is evidence of that caring in every classroom! This is truly a school where 21st century learning is taking place and preparing each student for contributing to our global society in our future! This is an example of one of the best urban schools in the country! Go Sheridan Stars!
I am moving my children out of sheridan as fast as I can. The school as a whole is ok. There are some great teachers and some horrible teachers. I am forced to leave this school because of the latter. Children are taught to test and retain little information. The principle is of no help. When you ask for assistance she is rude and unhelpful. I also have issue with their frequent suspension and detention given to the children. Overall , I would recommend another school for families that do not have time to come home and teach their children because they are not learning at school. I should note that my children are on the honor roll and never have homework
Our son attends a Pre-K in a Special Day class, and we couldn't be happier with the progress he has made through the amazing blended classes of Miss Meilani and Miss Ari. The principal, Miss Khalique, supports her teachers, and everyone is respected in this thriving environment. The kids are exceptionally polite and well-behaved here as well, and it is always a pleasure to visit this school.
I have two children at Sheridan and I have nothing but nice things to say about this school! Both my daughters are thrilled to go to school every day - the teachers and principal have created a strong learning environment where children are recognized for their efforts and success. The curriculum is outstanding, the children are happy and well behaved, In addition to their strong emphasis on reading and math, art, dance, PE and field trips are all part of the curiculum. The afterschool program run by the Stonestown YMCA is absolutely wonderful. The teachers and director are young and enthusiactic. Their summer program was the most fun my children have ever had! The children at Sheridan are able to learn and excel in a safe, structured environment and their success shows in their high scores and happy faces.
I was sceptical about Sheridan when my daughter was 'placed' there on an emergency basis...I needed to pull her out of Creative Arts Charter School on Turk Street. I took comfort in the numbers that Sheridan scored overall and I wasn't disappointed. Sheridan places a high emphasis on discipline and good behavior which in turn reflects on the academic achievemenst of the students. The reputation of the neighborhood precedes the school's name and character. But hopefully soon as the city continues toclean up and beautify the area (the park next door has been completely transformed) that will no longer be the case. My daughter loves her teachers; Ms. Pope and Ms. Scott!! They have an afterschool program that's run by the YMCA. The only thing I can say that is bad is that the parents need to get more involved without being bribed with food. Ana LW
My son attended Sheridan for summer school and had quite possibly the worst experience imaginable. The teacher allowed my son to be teased and then called me to say my son had a behavior problem, which I'd have never heard before this school. The principal is not the friendliest, and that s putting it nicely. Dysfunctional is best word to describe this school. The new facilities are nice but the school location leaves a lot to be desired. I really don t see how their API is 816...
Sheridan is a wonderful school and has a large focus on ethnic diversity. The teachers are most helpful and make it more comfortable for parent involvement with school and student activities. Sheridan also has a wonderful afterschool program that has been great to help our two daughters with improving their academics and actually willing to and enjoying it. I wouldn't choose any other school for them.
Sheridan is a wonderful school. My daughter loves it. The building is beautiful, the teachers are excellent, and the student body is well behaved.
Sheridan Elementary is a fantastic school to send your child/children. The teachers are all very professional. They instill the 'joy of learning' in every student. Sheridan students love challenge of learning new things. The students at Sheridan excell. At Sheridan we are family!
Sheridan has an awesome staff that is dedicated and genuinely caring about the students and their education. It is a school that is a home away from home for students and parents. My children love their school and wouldn't dream of going any where else!
As a parent of a Kindergartener, I would have to agree on the above review; however, respect and discipline comes from home and teaching our children to respect their elders will carry on no matter which environment they face.
As the parent of two former students of this school I would have liked to see as much attention payed to other cultures as is payed to the African-American culture at this school. The teachers overall attention to students is great, considering how much disrespect is shown to the staff. I would have liked to see more respect shown to the teachers from parents as well as students. Overall my children two of the lucky ones to come out of the city schools with their manners still in tact.
