Our Mission: To provide all students with an exemplary college preparatory education so they can succeed in college, career and life.
Sherwood Forest is one of 16 elementary schools in the Bellevue School District. We are lucky to have a variety of programs that serve the needs of our students. We house a centered Special Education program as well as a Beginning Level English Language Learner Program. We also have a preschool program on our school campus. In addition, we have additional supports for students through our English as a Second Language Program, Title I, Learning Assistance Programs. Through these programs we support struggling students in reading, math, and language development both during the school day and in an extended day Math Club. We also have many VIBES and parent volunteers who work with our school to support our students. All staff at Sherwood Forest are committed to working collaboratively to provide the highest quality education for all students in our school. We appreciate our partnerships with our community and believe that connection with students’ families plays a key role in academic success. Thank you for sharing your children with Sherwood Forest each day.
