Mission Statement:

It is the mission of Sherman School in partnership with community staff and parents to develop in our studentsí skills and knowledge necessary to create life- long learners who will be productive, responsible citizens in a culturally diverse society. Sherman School students will be respectful, responsible and ready to learn each day.

      Warren A. Sherman school is an elementary school  grades K-6.  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 16, 1954.

      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.

      Today there are 400 students at Sherman School.  There are 19 regular classrooms K-6.  Sherman has special area teachers for Science, Art, Physical Education, Library, Literacy, Resource, and Music.  Sherman is an inclusion school with the Special Education teachers working within the classroom environment.
