    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.
