Sherman School was built in 1953 and opened in September of
1954. It was named after Warren A. Sherman, who was the
Superintendent of Warwick Schools from 1930-1949. Members of
his family attended the ceremonial dedication on Tuesday, November
When Sherman School was scheduled to open in 1954, it was announced
that there would not be enough space for all of the neighborhood
children to attend. Other buildings in the community would be
used as schools for the excess students. Sherman School opened
with an average of 35 students per class.

regular classrooms K-6. Sherman has special area teachers for
