    "Our family has been very pleased with Sherwood. The teachers are kind and committed and try to challenge the children at the appropriate level. The principal and administrative team are extremely dedicated to doing what is right for the children, and even survey the children to learn how they feel about their teachers and school environment, and use that information to improve the experience. The parent community is very active as well and supportive of the school. Older comments here do not take the new Curriculum 2.0 into account. We've been very pleased with the intensity and amount of work done at school, and the amount of time children are given to be children at home. I am often in the school and find the atmosphere to be very pleasant and see a lot of learning going on."

    "The administration's application of 2.0 and the ludicrous no homework policy has seen this schools reputation fall dramatically. We are delighted to see the back of this but are sorry for friends who don't have an option. The fact that the best teachers Mr. W. Has left speaks volumes to the environment in the school."

    "Our experience with the teachers at Sherwood has been very mixed which I think is typical of any educational institution. Our biggest difficulty was having a special needs student and being totally unsupported and at times feeling sabotaged by the Principal. I will admit that our child's disabilities can be challenging for adults but the Principal became almost hostile to our child. We are thankful to her though because her actions pushed us to MCPS to find a wonderful non-public where he will thrive. I cannot say enough nice things about Ms Strong in the front office and Ms. Ficco the guidance counselor."

    "This school has an amazing administration and staff. The teachers have really met the challenge of the Curr. 2.0 rollout with huge success. The PTA and Parents have a very good relationship with the school staff which makes for a fantastic learning environment. Love SES!"

    "This is school's sole focus is on test scores and academics. They do not take into account the learning needs of the individual child and are not willing to work with the parents or child when there is a clear need for assistance outside the norm. We had clear documentation from a Pediatrician, therapist, Speech Therapist and Occupational Doctor with a full independent evaluation of our child indicating her needs for assistance and the school stated they would "evaluate" her. They told us " she was fine and did not meet their criteria for assistance. They put the kindergarten class with the latest lunch (12:50 pm) and would not allow them to eat their own healthy snacks - only offered pretzels. Very disappointed. This year grade 1 has the late lunch again (so Kindergartner class that had late lunch gets stuck again!). Poor planning. If you have a choice - don't send your child here! Teachers told us about her falling behind after the fact - very called or communicated with us until parent teacher nights. Never worked with us."
