Student Support: Sherwood Academic Magnet Middle School

While only students with 2.5 GPAs are accepted to this academic magnet school, the high standards can challenge even formerly high-achieving students. Guidance staff offer a sixth-grade support program to help struggling students form relationships and learn study skills and organization. A Positive Behavior Intervention program helps students learn appropriate school behaviors. Parent involvement is seen as key to student well-being, and teachers communicate regularly with parents in person and online, and post homework assignments so parents can see what students are expected to do and can support their work at home. Read the transcript of School Support. Read the general introduction to Sherwood Academic Magnet Middle School.
