This school defines the problems of Memphis City Schools and Dr. Kash should be ashamed of himself that he allows a school any Memphis City School to be as this one is currently. Not all children can attend WSMS. I blame us all the school board, the parents, Dr. Kash, and his staff, and the schools faculty, staff and leadership. Get with the program Dr. Kash and Krew.

Sherwood Middle is a bad school. The student are so disrespectful.


Posted August 5, 2005

Sherwood Middle school is one of the worst memphis city schools in the district and that is saying a lot compared to the city schools in a whole. My children and other relatives children have had nothing but hard times at this school. The school is in dire need of repairs.The school looks as if it should be demolished instead of pouring more money into it to repair. I was very disappointed at the school staff as well as the Memphis city school board. Please, if you have to send your child to this school, I would suggest moving out to the county or out of the state completely.
