The Sherman Building, located next to Lincoln’s Cottage, offers a spacious and bright learning environment for our students. In addition to classrooms with tall ceilings infused with natural light, our facility includes numerous spaces for individualized and small-group instruction, a sensory room on each floor, a gymnasium, two music rooms, and a grand hall for community events.
Students also enjoy a beautiful and green natural playground and outdoor learning space, sponsored by our committed parent association, the Creative Families Association (CFA).
