Our School

Located in the community of Lynnwood, our school was built in 1956, and has a rich family and community history often with students in attendance who's family members have attended Sherwood School going back several generations. Sherwood School hosts students Grades 4-6 from the Ogden and Lynnwood communities, as well as Grades 7-9 from Ogden, Lynnwood, Riverbend, and Mahogany communities.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

School Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
