Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town.

Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families.

Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Sherman’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
As is often the case in a small village, Sherman doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
