    Both my children excelled at Sherman Elementary School. I am very happy with the quality of the teachers however I wish there were more extra-curricular activities.

    Majority of teachers are wonderful. Principal is very involved with children's needs. Music art and PE programs need improvement. Parent involvement is usually welcomed.
