SHERWOOD FRIENDS' SCHOOL, situated near Sandy Spring, Montgomery county, Maryland will open for its twenty-first year on 9th month (September) 14th, 1903. This School is under the immediate supervision of the Sandy Spring Meeting of the Society of Friends. The Educational Committee is made up of intelligent, capable, and progressive men and women, whose intention it is to give the Principal all the aid in their power to make the School a success and a credit to the neighborhood.

The rooms are large, light, and airy, and are thoroughly heated with steam. They contain valuable works of reference and some physical apparatus.

The grounds are ample and well shaded, and opportunity is offered in them for the pupils to indulge in out-of-door sports, such as tennis, baseball, basketball, etc.

A large gymnasium, connected with the main building, has been built, and will be well equipped. Here the pupils will be given exercises twice a week, under the care of a competent instructor.

The School is divided into three Departments.

The Primary Department is composed of the two lowest grades in the School. In this department the hours are form 9 a.m. until 12 m.

In the course of these two years, pupils are expected to gain the ability to read ordinary English and

comparative ease; to begin to express their ideas in writing; to master the four fundamental operations in Arithmetic and to do some work in fractions; and to make a good start in Geography, History, and Language work, at first by verbal lessons, and later on by the use of carefully selected text-books. The aim of the Department will be to develop the child's powers of attention, observation, and self-control rather than to weary his brain and memory with abstract facts and principles.

For the Intermediate and High School Departments the morning session will open at 9 a.m., and the afternoon sessions will close at 3 p. m.

The two Intermediate Classes will receive instruction in the ordinary grammar school branches. The pupils in these classes will be expected to have constant practice in reading; to finish or nearly finish the usual school course in Arithmetic; to complete the course in Grammar and Political Geography; to study thoroughly the History of the United States and of England; and in some cases to begin the study of Latin and Algebra.

In the three years of the High School course the pupils will study some of the Masterpieces of English and American authors; will review Arithmetic, work in Algebra through Quadratics, and study Plane Geometry; will study Civil Government and the Constituion of the United States and General History; will have various short courses in physical Geography, Physics, Botany, and will continue Latin.

Each pupil who completes this course in a satisfactory manner, will receive a diploma, which should enable him
