Jesse Sherwood has come a long way. The teachers and staff really care about the students. The test scores have gone up year by year. The staff works hard with all the kids that attend the school. My hats off to everyone.

When first enrolling my daughter in to Sherwood 2006-2007 school year I was apprehensive. My apprehension was due to the neighborhood youths and the community. My daughter comes from a private school setting. In my mind she was not going to be able to adapt to an environment such as Sherwood. However the positive growth shown on Sherwood s ISAT has been tremendous. My daughter is adapting well and her educational growth has shown it. I have learned you don t have to adapt to your environment your environment will adjust to you. My hat goes off to the staff at Sherwood. It takes a village to raise a child! Good Luck
The school should be reviewed. The principal teachers and some of the parents don t care about the students. Many of the adults in the school talk to the kids as if they were adults the principal s not concern with the parents wishes and the students are not safe in or around the school.
