Sherwood Middle became a dedicated magnet school in 2005. Our magnet theme is high school preparatory and college/career readiness. SMAMS is proud to be the only “A” rated middle school in East Baton Rouge Parish.
Our advanced curriculum is aligned with national, state, and local standards. Instruction delivered by our teachers is facilitated at a more rigorous level than traditional middle schools in the state reflecting our magnet theme of high school preparatory and college/career readiness academics in a diverse setting. Advanced core courses are designed to meet our students on their varied academic levels. Being that we draw students from over 60 elementary schools, we ensure success for all students by enrolling students in core and elective classes based on individual readiness levels.
