I have two boys who attend this school. They choice into this school and love it. Ms. DeSart, the principal is beyond supportive and wonderful. The teachers, staff and parents are very involved and help all the students.
Great school. My daughter is in Kindergarten and readingher bedtime stories to ME now! I love how much homework they give her so we can work on it at home together. She is learning so much and loves her teacher. I don't know why the school received a five out of ten rating because I have seen some of the other Federal Way schools and they are above the rest, in my opnion.
Wonderful school. Very safe environment. I have had two students there (8 years apart and at different ends of the spectrum) and my wife volunteered once a week for both of them so we have had a chance to interact with a number of teachers and three principals. In terms of teachers, with only one exception (he was retiring) we found the teachers outstanding. All three principals were engaging and effective. If you have a child who is highly capable they have a program for that which we can recommend and if you have a child who is developmentally delayed they have a good program for that which we can recommend.
This is a great school with lots of parent involvement. The teachers & staff are great and very supportive. Extra help is offered for children needing additional assistance. Teachers are more than willing to work with parents & parent involvement is encouraged.
I think Sherwood Forest is an excellent school. The teachers are highly educated and prepared to reach any and all students. The parents of the students are very involved. This is my childs third year and she is doing well and loves her teachers. The teachers are very involved with the parents regarding the students progress. They really try to make it very personable by learning all of the stuents names. I overall give this school a very high rating.
