Sherwood Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
We have been so impressed with the communication, creativity, and supportive environment at Sherwood.
Consistently trying to improve the student experience from new activity additions (STEM) to recognizing what keeps kids alert and engaged. Kudos to the administration for consistently adding what kids need in this day and age each year!
The teachers we had, the three years we were there, were mostly good, though the least one left when we did. But the new principal I didn't feel worked well with parents. We had a special needs student, but not that far from normal. I didn't feel like she even wanted us there till she heard he could bring up their math scores in standardized testing. Over all we decided to leave the school for private education. It was a good choice on our part. When he was there 2 years ago, they had also stopped giving children homework. I assume because they didn't want parents to help teach their children because we would do it wrong, or so they told us at back to school night one year.
We moved to this school from DC, and as a result, our child needed some help to catch up with the rest of the class academically. The school was VERY accommodating and provided her with all the resources and assistance she can possibly need. Staff and principal are caring and committed. Can't ask for any more than that.
The teachers and the staff are very committed and friendly. I feel that the academic activities can be bit more intense. We moved to MD from a different state. My children went to public schools in that state as well. Comparatively the education content here seems little light. For example, the homework usually takes only 15 mins or so. There were very few project based learning activities. It may be the MCPS curriculum . So I don't want to blame the school. In all, this is a good school. If the teachers can adjust the work load for the children (for example, there could be 3 sets of homework depending on each kid's capability), it will help keep the kids challenged appropriately and make best use of the learning time. BTW, My kids absolutely love the music and art classes at Sherwood! Go Sharks!
