Sherwood School is a collaborative middle school where both students and staff work together to create a positive learning environment for all students. Sherwood has a strong sense of school spirit. Over the course of the school year (pre COVID-19) we host many events at our school such as; athletic tournaments, concerts and drama productions, celebrations of learning, community initiatives, family/community BBQs and much more.

Our School Enrolment is approximately 377 students from grade 4-9. Approximately 47% of students meet the criteria for Special Education.

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​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 Improvement 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​.
