My son is in the ASD program at Sheridan. The teachers and staff are GREAT. I have been very impressed with how much attention each student receives. The music & theater classes are impressive, great place if your kiddo is into that. On the downside, being in one of the lowest income zones in Minneapolis of course makes things tough for a lot of students. And although there is great opportunity for parent involvement, there doesn't seem to be much.
I am a student there and i dont think its all that bad. i learn more and more each day, and i am eager to learn more next time, i think the teachers really cae about their student, and the student feel like they can achieve anything.
We had our 2 kids at Sheridan for 2 years.. LOVED the teachers. THe class sizes are too big and one teacher cannot handle the integration of special needs children. Even children without special needs that may be slower do not get the attention they need. I had to complain about an ongoing use of videos and movies. My kids saw more movies durring the school year than we showed at home. Verry disappointing. We pulled out our kids and now pay $700/ month for a private school. Too bad really. We actually moved 4 blocks from the school just so our kids would have the stability of going to the same school for 9 years. Good luck Sheridan, we are praying for your improvement!
