About the school

Sheridan Elementary School is located in the Oceanview Merced Ingleside District. We serve students in preschool as well as Kindergarten through 5th grade. At Sheridan, we meet the needs of each individual child and aim to provide an inclusive and psychologically safe environment where all students excel, regardless of race or economic status. Sheridan school community believes in high expectations and an outcome of success for all students. Our extraordinary teachers and support staff believe that every child should be given an exceptional opportunity to be a part of a learning environment where students are joyful learners and they are challenged and supported across all areas of the curriculum. High achieving, joyful learning at Sheridan promises our students access to a standards-based curriculum that challenges them, excites them, and sparks a love of learning.

Sheridan teachers provide a variety of instructional strategies that make certain all children participate fully in the classroom. They take time to identify and nurture special gifts and unique learning styles of each student. The YMCA conducts our afterschool learning program. The YMCA offers homework assistance, peer leadership, sports, art, dance, music, and technology.

Parental involvement at Sheridan is much more than parent-teacher conferences. Parents are an essential part of our school, and we cannot succeed without them. We use many ongoing communications to ensure that parents are fully informed and involved—Wednesday folders, phone calls, parent feedback forms (available in English, Spanish, and Chinese), school events, and much more.
