    "This school is one of the worst in our district. Kids are out of control and disrespectful. The employees are not fit to work as teachers I was sent home a letter years ago informing all parents there were teachers actively working there with no degree. They do not handle bullying or erratic behavior well. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd rate Sharswood a 1. Don't send your kids here!"

    "I have no idea why you would HATE this school? Of course it seems not as great as it should be when you actually attend, but it takes more time to actually love and acknowledge the greatness of the school. I attended the school for 10 years, Pre-K to 8th! I'm basically part of the school now! I spoke little-to-no English when first attending, and now I'm almost an English MAJOR in high school. I love Sharswood with all my heart... It'll probably be One of the top school I'd Like to teach or advise at after College! Though, some kids take things for granted, they all should ABSOLUTELY take advantage of the great opportunities an Extra Curricular activities at Sharswood! I LOVE YOU ALL!"
