The limited number of seats available in Indian curricula schools in the city compared to the high demand has left parents in the lurch. The dire situation has been further strained by the closure of a prominent school, Sherwood Academy, where almost 3,000 students were studying. ... Sherwood Academy, the school which his son currently attends, is closing,
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The parent school is Merryland Kindergarten. Now developed into Merryland International at Mussaffah.
All the institutions founded by Mrs. Susheela George.
Sherwood academy is now closed. The school has finally closed after a lot of controversies and difficulties in acquiring proper licence for the IGCSE program as the school does not have proper qualified teachers. The school also does not have any proper gym and its motto has always been all work and no play. The only extra curriculum activities that the kids get is one week before the annual sports day when the school has try-outs for various competitions. The new premises of IGCSE has a swimming pool which is situated outdoor and no one has even been permitted to use it. As a result it has never been used. The school has maintained a good result records by forcing weak students out of the school in final year and deciding themselves if the student should take the extended or the core exam. The school has no respect for students and their parents as they know the shortage of schools in Abu Dhabi mean that admissions are not a problem. This has also enabled the school to demand the whole year's fees in a year advance. The school practices discipline by humiliating students in front of the whole school (for little things like not doing weekend's homework or not bringing the 'test' book when they have a class test or not bringing a subject's file), thereby demoralising them and completely destroying their self confidence at a age when the kids are growing and maturing mentally. The school is detested among many parents, but you will rarely find parents complaining, for if you are unhappy with the way they demoralise your kids, then Sherwood prides itself in giving your kid the transfer certificate. And their results are not so great either, other schools like the Islamia English School have had several kids over the years who get A grades (the maximum under GCSE) in 10 subjects.
