A Rigorous, Well-Rounded Curriculum: Sherwood Academic Magnet Middle School

Sherwood’s curriculum ensures that students meet local and state standards and then some. In mathematics, students are expected to exceed grade-level standards, enrolling in double math classes if necessary. Students who succeed in the core curriculum may enroll in enrichment courses such as forensics, pre-law, and marine biology. On a given day, students may be engaged in a mock trial or hunched over laboratory equipment to test forensic material. Sherwood’s school band rivals professional musicians, showing the public what a rigorous program of study can yield. Read the transcript of A Rigorous, Well-Rounded Curriculum. Read the general introduction to Sherwood Academic Magnet Middle School.
