My experience at Sherman High School has arguably been the best any one could ever have. The school does the most with what they have. The teachers are wonderful and generally care about every student. They want to see every student succeed and do their best to make sure every student knows their true value. The education challenges the knowledge of the students and teachers willingly help any student until they fully understand the subject. I love this school and everyone there.

My high school offers several different sports for all types of students. We also have a fitness center that is available to students as well as our local community. School spirit at our school is amazing. Fellow athletes, students, family members and the community attend most all of the sports showing their support to our players.
While there is a very small number of sports, because of the budget and number of students, they mean everything to the community. A majority of students are heavily involved in at least two sports, and those who don't participate in any are typically considered weird or less important than the athletes. While that's normal for highschools, it's even more evident at Sherman, as being good at something else doesn't usually redeem your reputation like being an athlete would.
