History

Sherwood Academy was built on a piece of land donated in 1883, that was once part of Sherwood Farm — named because the abundance of trees was reminiscent of Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest. [1] In 1906, Sherwood became the third public high school in Montgomery County, after Richard Montgomery High School and Gaithersburg High School. The original school building was replaced in 1950 [2], and the one thousand seat Ertzman theatre was added in 1974. The school was renovated in 1989-1991, during which students were temporarily displaced to the Northwood High School building in Wheaton, Maryland. During the summer of 2007, a new wing was added to the school.

Academics

The International Studies Program is the signature program of Sherwood High School, which distinguishes the school by providing a unique focused program. The signature program was established in 1998, coinciding with broader restructuring that occurred with the opening of nearby James Hubert Blake High School. Blake High School, along with Paint Branch High School and Springbrook High School formed the Northeast Consortium of schools. The consortium provides each with a specialized signature program that distinguishes each school, and that students can opt for instead of attending their local neighborhood school. While Sherwood opted out of the consortium, it established the International Studies Program. Sherwood is a member of the International Studies Schools Association, a national network of schools dedicated to improving students' understanding of the world.

Music

Sherwood High School is known for its music programs, including its annual Rock 'n Roll Revival show, which was established in 1971 [5]. The shows gross approximately $90,000 in ticket sales each year. The original concept for the show was conceived by a group of Sherwood students in Mr. Taylor's music appreciation class, who were inspired after seeing an October 1971 concert at Madison Square Garden in New York made famous in Rick Nelson's song "Garden Party". Art teacher Sam Andelman and other faculty members also appeared in the first show in 1972. [6] The show, under direction of Music Department Chair William C. Evans and teacher Gene Orndorff, includes performance of over 40 popular oldies songs, such as Jailhouse Rock, which appeal to parents. Each March, Rock 'n' Roll Revival has six sold-out performances over two weekends [7] at Ertzman Theatre, with a seventh performance for students in area middle and elementary schools. Many other schools have since replicated Rock 'n Roll Revival. [8] For other uses, see Music (disambiguation). ...

Sherwood High School also has an Instrumental Music Department under the direction of Alex Silverbook [9]. The school offers Jazz Band, Jazz Lab, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Symphonic Orchestra. Also offered are choruses including Jazz Choir, Show Choir, and Women's Chorus. The well-known jazz drummer Allison Miller [10] is a graduate of the high school [11]. Currently, Department Head Bill Evans and Sherwood graduate Kari Heinbuch teach chorus classes while Alex Silverbook conducts the instrumental groups. Marsha Barnes instructs music theory, piano, and guitar courses.
