I'm afraid I cannot say enough good things about Sherwood! The teachers are all phenomenal. They manage to teach the kids their lessons AND genuinely care about the students at the same time-which is almost unheard of from my experience with other schools. The principal is involved and an exceptional leader, and goes above and beyond. It is always very neat in appearance, and orderly when you walk in. I have always had a friendly greeting when arriving-from a teacher, the principal herself, office staff, or even another parent. Everyone loves this school, and it shows! The children and their education are their first priority, and they do an outstanding job of helping each and every child succeed. Anyone with a child at this school should feel extremely blessed! Sherwood ROCKS!!!

Sherwood has always been a great school. The leadership there is excellent. One of the best after school programs in Gaston County also picks up at Sherwood , Carolina Galaxy. I'm sure you will be very impressed with Sherwood Elementary.

Our oldest is now in 5th grade, and started in Sherwood's K. We love the impact that this school has had on him, as he has always had great teachers that seek to challenge their student to be better. The principal is very committed and has been a great leader, and the PTA is very involved. District cuts have forced the parents to provide more of the supplies, but otherwise a great environment.

Sherwood is a great school with a lot of afterschool programs for the kids. The parents are very involved in the childrens education, and the teachers are first rate. All 3 of my children have been blessed to attend this school.

Sherwood is a wonderful school. The teachers are very supportive of the children and involve parents at every opportunity. My child is now a 5th grader at Sherwood and has loved every year. They have a very good AR program and they try to get all children to participate in it. Sherwood also has a lot of activities after school such as 'skate night' and 'Bellacino's night'. The PTA at Sherwood is very active.
