I feel they are very rude. They don't push your child they let them Give up way too easy. The secretary's there are not helpful. I will not be allowing my child back there.

I don't feel my child is being taught. When we attended parent/teacher conferences she played with toys on the rug and her teacher informed us our child spent most of her time in time out for not focusing. She is not being taught or instructed to focus. She spends up to half her day at the desk doing work on her own. She is in K and doesn't know what she's supposed to be doing because she is sent to the time out desk instead of being taught.

I have sent all of my kids here since my 17 year old was in kindergarten. Aside from the woman who led the friendship club in (08 or 09 ) I have never had any problems with this school.. I think my 2nd grade son has a great teacher , whom he had last year as well (Mrs Knutson) my complaint is with the new rules on holiday party's etc.. I think all the kids look forward to the holiday fun and I strongly disagree with taking That away from them!! I am in the process of finding a new school to send my kids..

Sherman is a 5 star school! Sherman is a very low income school and we do as much as we can to stomp out hunger in our kids. We have a red back pack program that feeds low income and homeless students at Sherman. They pick up their back packs on Fridays full of food for the weekend and then bring them back to be filled up the next week. Sherman is going to be putting together food boxes during the summer to keep these kids fed throughout the summer months. This $20,000 would give Sherman the ability to help even more kids in need at Sherman. Pleace help us end hunger in our students at Sherman. Thank you, a proud parent of a Sherman student.

This is a great school. The staff is very friendly and super supportive. This school has a low income population and struggles to get much parent support and involvement. as a parent I see the struggles that face these caring teachers. They have some great programs and strive to do whats best for each child. I have noticed some larger class sizes, and would like to see that be smaller. But all in all a GOOD school!!

This school is trying, but still failing to succeed with the students. I believe this is two-fold. The school itself (staff) needs help and an attitude adjustment. The student body reflects an economically and educationally disadvantaged population. The teachers teach at the rate of the slower students, leaving the others to grow bored (as the case with my son). I voiced my concerns several times without the teachers being willing to help solve the problem. The attitude was my son needed to slow down and fit in and they weren't worried that he is in 1st grade and bored stiff. The teacher was unresponsive and uncaring. We are moving this summer and the main reason is to get our kids out of this school.

My daughter has only been there a month and a half and i am fighting with the school district to move her. This school does not handle a bad situation and treat the child and parents that dare to complain like crap. Do not send your child to this school!!!!

this is the most unfriendly elementary school I have ever been in. I am trying to find an alternate school for my son.

I didn't have very good response there and I sent two of my children there. Don't recommend this school.
