Develops respect: Strongly disagree
November 04, 2015
It's not just they don't respect the students. They don't respect the parents. And the wishes of the parents. Teachers , staff and some leaders feel that they talk to parents as well as students any way they feel. Like as such. If you put your cell phone down as an emergency number and the school calls that number more than your land line. And you simply ask them not to. They take it as your an abusive person. When it is not the first time that you ask this person to call your land. I have seen them even go threw a students bag with no reason or probable case.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

Yes they are. Their are teachers that tell students " you are nothing because you come nothing. So your life will be nothing. " All this is from a special Ed math teacher. He told a student who was drawing in his class.

The 12 grade principle. He go out of his way to help each student that needs it. Talk to the ones that he sees are a little troubled and put them back on track. So I say thank you.

Amount of homework: Too much
November 04, 2015
It is to much at times. Kids needs time to socialize too. If all they know is homework during their high school years then college is going to be one big party. Who's he blam?

They treat each child different. And not in a very good way. If your not apart of band, football team or Cheer leading squad. Making the school money in any kind of way you don't matter.

I have seen with my own eyes how a well dressed child get treated a whole lot better than a child with a wal mart brand clothes on. I was so horrified. Matter of fact. The teacher acted like he/she had no time for the child.

Our 2nd child is a sophomore at SHS. He had a good freshman year and so far this year has been going good as well. Our oldest child graduated in 2010 and there seem to have been some improvements since. No school is perfect, but SHS has been a good fit for our sons.

I had a meeting at the school. And a member of the school staff that i had a meeting with told me that I did not need to dress up. I could had stayed in my over sized ratty t-shirt and my baggy sweats. I could come to work comfortable like that. I have never seen this woman day in my life before. I was so horrified. All i did was smile at her. It was her and I in that main office at that time. She walked,and began talking to another staff member. Saying "these people always come here all dressed in their Sunday or Club best for these meetings when they look like trash when they at home". I was so livid that I wanted to cry. But i kept my composure. If the parents get talked this away whose to say the children don't get talked to the say way.

This school is terrible. It seems as though the teachers have no knowledge of one another. As a result, so much homework is given to the student that they have only so much they can do, and when they don't turn it in on time, THEY are punished. If you can find a better school, go there instead. This district isn't even worth it.

This High school is too strict no flip flops and there are only two sets of stairs out of the whole school and they are only three steps... What an ridiculous rule.... And when they discipline they aren't disciplined in a equal manner...

I am a Sophomore at Sherman High and I tell you now, two things, one don't worry about my mistakes in this review im just used to making these mistakes. anyway, we have some of the best teachers you can get, there are teachers that kids that skip every other class get to that particular teacher, in the time allotted, the community we have set up here is a great one, it is a little crowded, but its not an intensely big problem. the facts are, that sherman high has to be one of the ebest highschools in the country, by students opinion, those students that dont learn much, learn something from the teachers here, because they can relate to them, i say as a current student, the school here is amazing.

Sherman High School is a great school, though it doesn't have the best reputation. Sherman has an amazing music program, with a band that continuously places at State competitions and a choir with students placing in the UIL State competitions. The sports aren't particularly strong, but students and parents are enthusiastic and supportive just the same. UIL Academics is heavily supported and particularly competitive among the individual students. Sherman's AP program is the best in its district, if not region. The passing rate is usually above 80% and those students are normally in the top ten percentage of their classes. Generally, Sherman's an amazingly great school for any student to attend.

My tenth grade son is having an excellent experience at Sherman High. As with any school one must find ways to become involved. The opportunities are wide and varied. Academically, his experience has been rich and he will be prepared for college with several A.P. credits under his belt.
