Clean and friendly! Everyone waves, lots of recreations and things to do. Great lake close by to do some fishing and boating. Good schools with good education.

There isn't a whole lot to do in Sherman. The town is a fair size, but you can quickly get to know most people quickly enough to recognize them by face. The schools are too small for the growing population of the city, and there aren't enough classes that actually teach the students anything worthwhile.
Wonderful city! Sherman is growing quickly and is a great place to raise a family or retire. I grew up here and have lived here for most of my adult life. People here are friendly and loving.
