Sherman Elementary School

We envision a school where high expectations are met by providing a strong core curriculum in reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. The Sherman staff, working with families and community, will emphasize the integration of technology, the arts and community service, to ensure that each child reaches their full potential. The Sherman community will embrace diversity and value respectful behavior.
