    I really love Sherwood my son has attended since 2nd grade he is now in the 4th grade. Dr. Pierce his 3rd grade teacher was great and really kept me informed as to my son's strengths and weaknesses she always provided ways I could help him learn a particular section in the curriculum if he was having problems. This year he has Mr. Young who is a new teache but is absolutely wonderful he answeres all my notes in a timely manner and keeps me very much informed the first day my son was in his class he told me what a cool teacher Mr. Young is. Ms. Long is also one of his teachers and she will return my calls promptly and let me know my sons progress.

    My son attended SAES for K5. I was very disappointed in the entire school. The first few months he had a very young and unqualified teacher. What was most upsetting was that during the last two months of school in 2007 there were two school lock downs. The first lockdown I heard about from the local newspaper and the second I heard about from another parent. Both times the school administration did not send home a letter or anything explaining what had happened. I felt that it would have been easy for the principle to send a note home with everyone explaining there was a lock down and that the school followed the procedures but no one ever said anything until just before school let out for the summer. The school never explained what the threat was to cause the lockdowns.

    Sherwood is a really good school. Expecially Mrs. Robinson the principal she works hard with both the parents and teachers to come together for the greater good of the child. I know Mrs. Robinson 1st hand because my child has spent many of times in her office for behaviorl problems relating to ADHD. She helps parents and teacher come to a middle to benefit the child. She also speaks to the child and hears their side of the story. She tries hard to prepare the children for the next year.

    I picked up my child and another child from the extended day program. I have never been or spoken to anyone at this program before. I was not asked for any idea or even what my name was I was not even asked to sign the children out. SAD.
