Sherman ISD is home to talented students, dedicated and inspiring educators, and parents and business owners who are passionate about the success of our children. Our maroon pride runs deep, within both our long-term residents and SHS graduates, as well as for those who have recently joined the Bearcat family. There is also an incredible can-do spirit that permeates our community. When this spirit is combined with a dedicated teaching team, incredible support from our parents and business leaders, and focused effort from our students, the possibilities are truly unlimited! Academically, all of our schools meet or exceed state performance standards and Sherman High School has been recognized for academic excellence and college and career preparation by The Washington Post and the US News and World Report for each of the past 8 years. Providing further evidence of the academic achievements of our students, the Class of 2016 earned more than $4 million in scholarships, and are currently attending nationally and internationally acclaimed public and private universities. Such accomplishments are not chance occurrences; they are a result of careful planning, focused implementation, and future oriented thinking. Sherman ISD is currently working in year two of a five-year strategic plan that was developed in 2015 through the collaborative efforts of our parents, teachers, and community leaders. This plan is the foundation for our Building Bearcats 2030 initiative and contains the following priorities: 1.Research-based instructional practices will be used in all SISD classrooms toimprove student learning and student opportunities 2.Technology will be integrated into the instruction of classrooms at all campuses 3.Parents and community members, representative of SISD demographics, will be involved in district and campus initiatives and the educational experiences of students; 4.SISD will provide students relevant and meaningful exposure to vocational work experiences 5.School facilities will be evaluated and a plan for new construction, renovations and updates will be developed 6.SISD will provide a proactive approach to build and expand co-curricular and extra-curricular activities for students 7.A nurturing environment will be established in SISD.
