21 Parent Reviews for Sherwood High School

My 3 children all went to Sherwood and were extremely well prepared for college. All 3 got scholarships as a result - in different areas: academic, athletic, and music. Could not have asked for a better school.

If you aren't a jock or cheerleader don't bother coming here. Teachers are fairly nice but some teacher obviously don't want to be there. Sherwood cares more about image than anything else. Your just another number to them. My counselor is terrible and most adult there are very vain. Security sucks. ...  Read more

Sherwood is a somewhat great school. I attended from 2006-2010. I'm current at Towson U. They have some great teachers, while others need to find another job. First of all, Sherwood is "clique". ESOL kids stay together, jocks have a pact, and so on. Trust me...I was one of them. Most students there pour ...  Read more

Sherwood is a great school academicly but other wise Sherwood is Boring socially. The Pep rallies are boring and to be honest the school is really segregated. The teachers are pretty cool. some of the staff are annoying. overall its an OKAY school.

Sherwood is a great place to go to school. There are a ton of things to do, and even if you don't participate in most school stuff, like myself, (I only went to dances & several football games) you will still love it there. There are so many amazing teachers, the security guards are nice, it's really ...  Read more

I went to Sherwood and am currently up North going to college. Sherwood taught to the test way too much. I had one teacher sit down and actually go through the entire test to make sure we new each answer on review day. The school focused too much on image. I felt like a number, not a student. The school ...  Read more

I have two kids who graduated from Sherwood. Both were well prepared for highly rated colleges, and graduated with honors. The teachers are great, the courses are challenging. The annual Rock & Roll show brings the students and the community together in a way I've never seen before. My youngest son ...  Read more
