I am a former Sherwood student who is now in highschool. I will never forget my years at the school and I will never want to! It was a great school with a comfortable atmosphere and wonderful teachers. It's an overall great place to learn and even have fun, and no other school like it can be found. I am proud to say that I am and forever will be a Sherwood SUPERSTAR!

My son has attend Sherwood for 3 years. I have enjoyed each year watching him grow, the teachers and staff at Sherwood are amazing. But the principal leadership seems to be slipping as each year passes. It's time to have a new principal, one who shows up at school events.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
