The university has a tradition of commitment to American Indians dating back to the fall of 1968 when several American Indian students were specifically recruited to Long Beach to begin classes.

Sherman was initially accredited as a comprehensive high school in 1995 by the Western Association for Schools and Colleges, WASC.
