    This has been my son first School since the year of 2011 and I must say that he's grasp so much. I can say that the staff workers really does what needs to be done to help a child in the area that they need help the most. If it wasn't for our boundary lines issue My son would still be continuing his education there at Sheridan Hills Elementary. I will miss this school soo much.

    My school is my second family and every student is treated like my own. The small feel of this school can't be beat!

    When my family moved across the street from Sheridan hills elementary school I was ready for anything. Within the first two months I was sadly disappointed in my sons first grade teacher and her lack of communications skills with me and how quick she was willing to write my A+ student of a son as the problem child . So with high hopes and low expectations I went to the office and demanded change be made. One of the secretaries in the office wasted no time in coming to my aid! Immediately put me in contact with the guidance counselor who then put my son in a class with a better teacher. This whole process took a week and a half. I honestly never expected the efficiency or the change in my Childs attitude. He began to love school again and is back on his A+ track. So I m giving a huge THANK YOU!!!!!!! to Sheridan Hills for caring about my son enough to make sure he didn t fall behind.

    Caring for each other and each student. Making sure students reach their potential and provide them with everything the school and teachers can to make sure it is achieved.

    The teachers treat each other with so much respect and the children also. I have never in my whole life seen a school that is so caring for the students and each other.

    Sheridan Hills is the best kept secret in Hollywood FL. The school is not overcrowded no portable classrooms! The teachers are the best of the best and many of them National Board Certified! The special teachers (art P.E. Media Music etc.) are wonderful! Love you Ms. Treado and Ms. Fogerty! My daughter has attended since K.. she is now in 2nd grade.(Love Ms. Corriveau!) If you are moving into this area and your children are zoned for Sheridan Hills Elementary consider yourself extremely lucky!

    My daughter attends Sheridan Hills Elementary for Speach Therapy. The school is excellent. The teachers as well as the staff are caring and truly interested in educating the children left in their care. It is a modern facility and updated classrooms.

    Due to work relocation we have had to move a few times in the last 2 years...our daughter is now in 7th grade but attended Sheridan Hills for grades K-5. It by far is the best school she has ever attended. Dont get me wrong..not everything is perfect...there is always one thing or another that we all hated about the schools we went to but my daughter and the rest of our family cherish the Sheridan Hills days and the memories. One downfall? At the time there was not enough music availability for instruments etc. The best thing about this school? Ms. Corriveau!

    My daughter started attending Sheridan Hills in 2004 after we moved from NYC. I can't express how impressed I am with the level of teaching at this school. The teachers are are so in 'tuned' with their students. Academically the lessons are geared to give the children a level of intelligence that far exceeds that of the 'average' child. The school offers art music a chorus group and a host of physical activies. Here is an elementary school where you find children that take pride in their school. Sheridan Hills also instills a competitive nature in the student not to mention the great preparation for FCAT testing. My child faced the FCAT with no hesitations and had tremendous results as did many of the students hence Sheridan Hills moving from a 'B' school to an 'A' school. Way to go S.H.E!

    I am very impressed so far with this school. My daughter is attending kindergarten and the teachers guidance counselors and principal are all very caring accessable people. The school is very organized and the parents are kept up to date with activities and announcements thorugh a folder my child brings home daily. I highly recommend this school.
