Open Quote I went to this school for three years. Before moving to a different state and changing schools I never realize what a bad situation I was in at William Sherman. I had a problem in my my mouth which made my tooth look a little weird this led to relentless bullying kids had thrown rocks and sticks at me called me ugly to my face and even my third grade teachers basically called me up to their desks in the middle of class work and had me show them my tooth one teacher then told the other " Wouldn't you like to look at that all day" My own teachers had called my disgusting to my face almost every day my mom had to write the school a note telling the principal and my teachers about a bullying situation.

Open Quote The Dual Language program in this school is amazing and feel extremely lucky to be part of it.
The fact that my daughter will be bilingual from a public school education is notable and commend worthy. More schools should have programs such as this. Language is a powerful tool. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
