dress code is stricter then private schools, and come across as a way for the school to make money, for example the child cant wear t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, or other things unless they are ones purchased with the school logo from the school. Today they pulled a girl out of class because she had one button on her polo shirt unbuttoned. They disrupted a childs learning for one button that did not even show her chest, just her neck. So far not impressed with the staff, the counsler is rude to both children and parents. And the kicker! To keep the kids from being able to let other kids in, they CHAIN THE DOORS SHUT!! litterally chains with padlocks, that has to be a fire code violation.
This school has had a HUGE turnover of teachers and administration during 2012/13 and 2013/14! While the change is needed, it's not a good place to be during transition. Communication with parents has been very poor!
My son has been going to Sheridan for the past 2 years and is doing very well. He has a 3.8 GPA He gets along well with the teachers. I feel the school is very unique because the children and students seem very close. Sheridan middles school offers many challenging classes for all the children.
