Why Sherman 

Picture of Sherman students

The team at Sherman works to stay on the cutting edge of science and technology and in 2015 received "innovative school" designation from the district for incorporating a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) learning model throughout the school. To maximize the STEAM experience, Sherman has implemented project-based learning across all grade levels. Building on the multiple community partners already in place, Sherman provides a rich learning experience for all students. Sherman parents and guardians are viewed as partners in their children's education; this spirit of collaboration can be seen through the active PTSA.

Kindergarten Jump Start August 22-24, 2023
