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. Nearly all of our students attend our CARE after school program, which provides time for enrichment activities and homework tutoring. We also host a preschool program which prepares three and four year-olds with the academic and social skills they need to be successful in grade school.
At Sheridan, we believe in universal access to our curriculum for all children. As a result, we have a strong intervention program which provides 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. Teachers use interactive whiteboards to present lessons and elicit student responses to new learning. Students use i-Pads and PCs to research topics, write and produce projects, and take Accelerated Reader quizzes. With the new Smarter Balance statewide assessments continuing in 2016, students will be required to use all of these skills to show proficiency in the content areas.
We are also very pleased to with 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. Our hands-on FOSS science program is top notch.
Saturday Community Work Days, continue to be strong traditions on our campus. In addition to improving the overall look of our school, this program has also created new friendships.
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.
