This school is not a success it is a failure due to lack of leadership. The school originally became a turn around in 2008, and has not met any or its academic goals in six years. The turn over rate for teachers is extremely high, every year a new crop of teachers come in and then leave due to the horrible administration. Students have no sense of security when they see teachers come and go through revolving doors. Again this is through no fault of the teachers, administration runs the school like a prison. Students are yelled at to eat in silence, parents are not welcome in the school. I would never send my child to this poor excuse of an educational facility.

This school is one of the great successes of the Chicago Public School system. It is a school to be used as an example of how the city, with the right planning, can provide better education opportunities to it's urban communities. Sherman is well on it's way to becoming one of the best schools in the city!
