Sheridan School opened its doors in 1864 and has served the
Sheridan area continuously ever since. We are part of the Western Placer
Unified School District which serves eleven schools in the greater Lincoln
area. Our students learn in multi-grade classrooms in Kindergarten through
Fifth Grade. Our Kindergarten class is
an all-day program. Nearly all of
our students attend our CARE (no-fee, district sponsored) after school program,
which provides time for enrichment activities and homework tutoring.
At Sheridan, we believe in universal access to our curriculum for all children.
As a result, we have a strong intervention program which provides Reading,
Writing, Math, and English Language Development on a daily basis and small
group instruction for struggling students. Our students are engaged and
motivated by carefully crafted lessons prepared by teachers who are not only
highly qualified, but passionate about education. Our support staff is very
dedicated to supporting each student's success.
Technology plays a large part in the development of our curriculum and
increases student interest and digital skills. Students use i-Pads and Chromebooks
to research topics, write and produce projects. We also have an online
instruction/intervention program that provides targeted skills instruction
We are very pleased to provide science and music programs with teachers who are
specialists in their area and are able to give our students a broader education
in the sciences and arts. Join us for our Winter and Spring Programs to see first-hand
the benefits of the performing arts in schools. We have a hands on science
curriculum that engages and challenges students through the Next Generation
All of us at Sheridan School believe that ALL students can learn at high
levels. We work together to provide a comprehensive, rigorous educational
program for each of our students. We would be pleased to have you visit or join
our school community. Come and see what a special place this little gem of a
school really is.
