I once only had good even great things to say about this school prior to 2013-14 school year. I LOVED this school and the staff, everyone was friendly and it really was a great place to learn. Parents and staff had a good working relationship. THE PTO did a lot of good things for the school. (Examples: secret Santa shop, spectacular, carnival.) With the beginning of 2013 school year all gone thanks to principal. At the end of the year the teachers that where LOVED where in tears and left building. School flooded with drain water which is UNSAFE and principal not only failed to inform parents but had students walking in stuff

I wouldn't even sit in that principle's office, I will have nothing to do with her. She is a Benavedous & her grandma @ the time I was @ Otto year's ago, & parent's poor, well guess where I grew up??? Ward of the State of Michigan!!!! Watch your Children people. I will say that Mrs. Garza is top knotch and Mrs. Cary is the best ever.

The students at this school are respectful and friendly toward adults. The staff is extremely supportive to substitute teachers. There is a wonderful sense of community among students, staff and parents. The dedication of educators is top-notch. Students are excited to learn! A day at Sheridan Road is always a good day for me!

Mrs Garza, 5th grade teacher there, uis the best teacher in the world! I would recomend her any day for any fifth gradeer's parents.

I made the decision to pull my kids out of this school because my childrens needs were not being met. The new principal of Sheridan Road School wouldn't listen to what the parents felt were in the best interest of the children. I also have seen the principal being rude to the children and parents at Sheridan Road School.

I just recently made the decision to remove my child from Sheridon Road School. I feel that this school did not meet my childs needs. She is a first grader and reads at a third grade level. I do not believe the academic programs are suited for every child. There is a great need for a better gifted and talented program. The availability of art, music, etc. was great. The level of parent involvement is good there are parents always there to help when needed. My child was only there for K-1st grade her teachers were great. My son was there 4th&5th. I was not impressed with the teachers for the higher grades!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
