The high school has the best administration and teachers a parent could ask for. They are caring and truly work for and want every child to succeed.

I went to Sherwood High School and it has done nothing but improve. Sherwood is a great place to raise kids. I have two children who recently graduated one is in school to become a Dr and one is working full-time as a vet-tech and they are both there because of the education they received from Sherwood.

We love Sherwood! Both myself and my husband are SHS graduates and we chose to live here so our children would be involved in such a great community and great schools.

I feel that even though my kids attend a large school, they still get the attention from staff that they would get from a smaller school. There is a sense of community here.

Though our community continues to grow and has been rated high on the scale for 'most desirable living communities,' our high school staff and administrators have not lost sight of the 'small town' atmosphere that enhances learning and individuality of our students. No student is overlooked or 'pushed through' with the mass but rather encouraged and celebrated at every step. Learning is presented in a fun and stimulating atmosphere that continues to prove successful as shown in student testing. Hooray for Sherwood High School!!!

Sherwood High School is awesome. It is a great place for the kids. They have a lot of support for athletics and the kids seem to do great in the environment that is provided.

With less than 1% dropout rate and impressive test scores, they provide a GREAT educational experience. However, more than that they are partners in the community and the many activities that has made Sherwood a Top Ten Place to Raise a Family, as designated by FAmily Circle Magazine in 2009.

Sherwood is a great school that offers a good combination of academics, sports, clubs and school spirit. The facility, teachers and leaders care about creating a strong environment for learning and growth and the community is incredibly supportive. But what makes the school the best is the quality of the students themselves. They are a good set of kids who function as a student body, but respect the differences of each other. they are passionate and care about what happens at their school.

Sherwood High school has teachers that really care about there students, both academically and personally. They strive to reach every students needs, and are willing to do what it takes to help that student. There athletic program is also very good, the coaches teach the players great sportsmanship and camaradere, winning may be important, but it's more about how you play the game.

In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon.
