You are here: Home » About SCS

Sherwood Charter School is a K-8 school of choice, providing a rigorous academic experience through integrated curriculum and instruction. SCS maintains a nurturing environment with small class sizes and an emphasis on practical application of what is learned.


We are a small, close-knit school, with a student population capped at 225 students. We get to know each other and celebrate each other’s successes. We believe in cultivating students’ hearts as well as their minds to foster academic excellence and improve school climate. Our character development program, HEART—an acronym for honor, empathy, accountability, respect and teamwork—is woven into everything we do. Instead of focusing on students doing something wrong, we recognize students acting with HEART on a daily basis.


In the 2014-15 school year, Sherwood Charter School performed well on the new Smarter Balanced achievement test, comparing very well against both state averages and other elementary and middle schools in the Sherwood School District. Please view our 2015 Smarter Balanced report card with the results.
