School Philosophy

At Sherwood School we believe:

  • In providing a safe environment where students can achieve to the best of their ability, become positive contributing members of society and build healthy peer relationships
  • In ensuring parents find an open door and a place of trust, where they can share and contribute
  • That staff members should be positive, respectful role models for students and parents



At Sherwood School we live by the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and believe in being kind and respectful and working to the utmost of our abilities.

We have high expectations for behavior and conduct and know that following the 7 Habits will allow us to be better citizens and better learners and leaders.
