Lake Forest Schools

About Us

Thank you for your interest in Sheridan Elementary School. Sheridan is located at 1360 N. Sheridan Road in the community of Lake Forest, Illinois.

Sheridan serves a population of students from Kindergarten through fourth grade. The student enrollment at Sheridan is approximately 237 students. Our school mascot is Spark the Shark. Many parents choose to live in Lake Forest due to our reputation for academic excellence, and we at Sheridan uphold that reputation through our work to meet the needs of all of our Sheridan Sharks.

Sheridan students are provided with an environment where they are consistently challenged and motivated to do their best. Together, administrators, staff members, and special service professionals partner with the community to engage each and every child in the rigorous curriculum at Sheridan. Core subjects studied include reading, math, writing, social studies, and science. Sheridan students are also fortunate to participate in music, art, wellness, and library and technology skills in addition to their core areas of study. A unique aspect of our elementary curriculum at Sheridan Elementary School is our focus on the development of each child’s skills in World Language. Students begin Spanish instruction in second grade which continues through fourth grade. In addition, all students are exposed to Latin through study of word origins and derivatives in the English Language Arts curriculum. This exposure deepens students’ understanding of English and provides a basis for the study of other romance languages. World Language instruction continues in middle school.

Also integral to our programming and to the success of all Sheridan Sharks is our Sheridan APT and the District 67 Spirit of 67 Foundation; both of these organizations work to support the education and enrichment of all Sheridan students through supporting field trips, guest speakers, and by providing grants to Sheridan staff members to further enrich their instruction.
