The school is declining. One of the main reasons my child attends Sherwood is for the Dual Language program. Unfortunately I don't believe the program is strong on this campus. I have noticed that the teacher turn around has increased every year specially this year, it seemed like half of the staff was new. Which worries me because I wonder how that will affect the instruction my child is receiving and how much experience/ training the teacher has in the program. The administration is not friendly. I do love that the school is small, the parent involvement is great and the PTA is wonderful! I really want to see this school turn around but not sure how much longer I can sacrifice the education of my child when he/she could be receiving a better one else where.

My son and daughter have attended Sherwood for three years. I initially sought out this school because of the dual language program. This was important to me, knowing how beneficial being bilingual is in our global society. My entire family has had a great Sherwood experience! The school is a cheerful looking place and the staff appears to love what they do. Sherwood teachers really take their time to get to know their students and families. They have high expectations for the students and the academics are rigorous and engaging. Sherwood has some great traditions. A few highlights of the school year are Read-a-thon where students where their pj s to school and read for the entire day, Tour of Americas where each class presents a project on a selected destination, and Family Soccer Day where parents and teachers challenge the students at a game. The community is a small, diverse, and close-knit one where parents are involved. Sherwood really is a great place to be!

I love the parent involvement and all the activities for families. It's a small school and all the students know and help each other.

Sherwood is a gem. We have a SPARK park, a new playground coming soon, a field, and walking path. The faculty really care about kids. The administration is innovative and hard-working. The children are very sweet. We have a fantastic literacy library and our teachers are strong in guided reading group instruction. Students have the opportunity to work towards fluency in the dual language program. Several after school enrichment options are available. A lot of class sizes are small. Students study other cultures & countries throughout the year, making presentations and creating projects. Our PTA arranges for enriching programs to go along with the cultural studies. Overall, a lovely place to learn.

Unfortunately, a disorganized school and poor administration leadership. Some classes need intervention and special needs assistance.

I am proud to say that I am a former student of Sherwood Elementary. Sherwood I think is the best school I have gone to, the teachers were wonderful, and cared so much. And the Principle when I was going there Mrs. Bertie I think that is how spell it, was the best principle I have ever had. When I went there they had something called I think Fun Friday, where the kids would be able to go to different class rooms, and they would have activities, and games to play. I will charish thoughs memories forever. I would recomend your school to anyone, and as a former student of Sherwood, I will give it my highest recomendation. Thank You.
