    "Sherman is a wonderful school. Our daughter started kindergarten their this year (2013) with one of the new teachers. She is great! I don't know why previous reviews complain about the principal. She is young, energetic, and very visible in the school. Please don't let the bad reviews turn you off to Sherman. Our experience has been great. Sherman was our first choice and we feel very lucky to have won the SFUSD lottery!"

    "Sherman is AWESOME! My child is learning so much! I am not sure why anyone would bash our Principal. She is always at every morning assembly and there for parents and kids in the hall. She knows every child. The kids love her. She is not a paper pusher who hides in her office like so many other heads of school. She takes education and preparing our kids for their future seriously. Because she is around she sees how kids act and if she added some personal comments to the parent below in a conference and they were different from what was relayed by the teacher then maybe they were her own observations. Has she no right to speak about what she as a Principal sees? Maybe the parent who wrote all the malarky does not want to face that they need to get their child in line. Instead they knock the Principal and try to hurt the reputation of a school that has an API of 931! This is public school and if these parents can not get their kids to behave here, where people are more accommodating different behavior issues, then they will not last a New York minute in the private school admission process where kids are put under a microscope. Get your kid in line and stop blaming the Principal."

    "I toured this school in the fall. Somewhat informative parent-led tour, nice Spanish style building, wide halls, large playground, beautiful garden, active parent community, students engaged in some classrooms not in others. Least impressed by the principal. No greeting and absent during tour. At the end of the tour, a large group of interested families sat in their cafeteria. Had a Q&A with the parent volunteers-which was supposed to be facilitated by the principal. The parents said she was coming to answer additional questions. After we exhausted the parent-volunteers with questions, the room fell silent for over 20 minutes while we waited for the principal to show up. When she finally arrived, she was short, dry, unengaged, and acted as though we were wasting her time. She said she only had time for 3 questions :-/ Before my arrival, I was excited about this school. Unfortunately, I left gravely disappointed. With poor leadership, the whole system becomes dysfunctional. I want my daughter to attend a school where her teachers are getting what they need to be successful in their roles and the students have a positive, supportive role model as a leader--I didn't see this here."
