The Sherwood AcademyEducating children infant through sixth grade
Established in September of 2001, The Sherwood Academy was developed to provide the children of Magnolia, The Woodlands, Montgomery, Woodforest and surrounding areas with a wealth of adventure for learning. We believe that early childhood is a time of creative growth and exploration. We strive to provide a warm and secure environment where children can grow in all aspects of development.
Our facility consists of 2 acres and 2 buildings. With over 10,000 square feet total, each building was custom built specifically as a school. During the initial planning phases, great care was taken to create useable space that felt like home! Each classroom is uniquely decorated, creating a very warm environment that not only feels like home, it stimulates and engages each child. Children’s work is displayed both in the classroom and outside the classroom creating a sense of pride for each child. Our kiddos are very excited to show their hard work off!
We take great pride in maintaining a safe clean and inviting campus to welcome the children to school each day.
Learn By Doing
At The Sherwood Academy, we like to learn by doing. Our curriculum is custom designed every year to meet the needs of each student enrolled. Our preschool students enjoy a thematic curriculum full of fun, engaging and hands on activities and learning opportunities. Their days include play-based learning, exposure to an academic foundation (including language arts, math and science), cultivation of fine and gross motor skills, age appropriate social development, and a wealth of exposure to the fine arts. Our elementary students enjoy curriculum tailored to each child’s specific strengths and weakness and is based off of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Our elementary students also enjoy Spanish instruction, fine arts, a full STEAM lab, a library, book club and physical education each day.
The Sherwood Academy
Owned and Directed by Staci Mayhill, The Sherwood Academy has steadily grown from an original 13 students to accommodate an enrollment exceeding 125. The preschool building is home to Sherwood’s youngest students. Their day incorporates an educational based thematic curriculum, music and movement, a Dr. Seuss inspired library and classrooms designed with educational centers, art stations and much more! In their own building, our Elementary students, The Sherwood Wolves, utilize their core classrooms, a library, a fine arts room, a science lab, a Spanish room, a gym and a STEAM lab. The students who stay with us each day until 5 also have a variety of afterschool extra curriculars to choose from.
