Our Sheppard School Community loves Playworks because it offers our students great cognitive, social and emotional benefits. After recess and class game time, students are able to refocus and are cognitively stimulated and ready for learning. This is evident through the increase of our reading and mathematics scores. In all grade levels, students have improved by at least 15 percentage points from last school year.
