    Sherman Elementary is an amazing school filled with caring teachers and an awesome principal. My daughter has been going to Sherman since she was in pre-school and the attention she has gotten from all her teachers has been fabulous. It's great that she is learning spanish at such an early age so that she can continue to grow with being a bi-lingual student.

    This school is improving in many ways with their new leader. The Principal listens to all concerns and adresses them. Hopefully soon there will be a more rigorous academic program. The front office needs to work on their interpersonal skills and answering the phones.
