My school Woodlawn High school- Magnet is great. But, we need new things as well like new venting machines, better school t-shirts, and more. We all try to help with those few things, by giving money, fundraisers, and raffle tickets. But, that didn't go as planned. We need your help! Please, consider on helping us.

I attend Woodlawn now and it's okay. I previously attended a county school and had to get use to the way that things work here. I had/ have some great teachers here. The administration could stand to change and students could be more behaved, but other than that, Im satisfied.

Woodlawn is the most spectacular schools in Birmingham. Woodlawn probably don't have that many teachers, but they are doing there best for the students that's up there. I am happy there is a school like Woodlawn High School Carnels

I rate this school a ten because they challenge you to higher learning no thanks to the principle though the assisstant principles do mostly everything. We also have a great staff especially senior teachers whom are pushing us to as we call it 'Get on our grind or hustle' to make it. I am the CLASS OF 09

I would like to see more dedication, motivation and consistency in the area of sports, especially Football. It's not motivating when the team never wins and the coaches don't show up for scheduled practice. Something should change in this area!

I was somewhat nervous about having my child attending Woodlawn Highschool since it has had such a poor reputation. However, when the new administration was put into place at Woodlawn, all of my worries were soon put to rest. Under the leadership of the current principal, Woodlawn High School has made a total change. At one time, the halls were packed with students just hanging around instead of attending class. Now there is a environment conducive to learning and the students are 'required' to excel. Students are also encouraged to participate in extracurriclar activities such as sports, music, and band. These activities help to promote school pride and social participation. I am sure that it is not easy so I applaud the administration and the fine educators. You have taken on the task of providing quality education to the children. Thhank you Woodlawn Highscool.

Before this school recieved a new administrative staff, student discipline was not at its best. I feel that since the new staff entered the school, the halls are much clearer, students respond more to auhtoritarians, and negativity among the students have decreased. The students are raving about the improvement of the school. I hope that next year will continue be as successful as the spring semester. Woodlawn always recieve bad raps but now I am am proud of our school. Keep op the good work Pricipals students,and teachers.

I think that Woodlawn is one of the best schools in the Birmingham Public School System. The educators and administrators are by far the most dedicated employees in the system. People seem to think that just because we are an inner-city high school that we are inferior, but that's not at all true. I know this because I have been a student there for two years. I have witnessed a major difference in the school. We have the best principal in the business. Our teachers are extremely dedicated some of them care more than the parents. So for anyone to say that Woodlawn is not a great school is sadly mistaken. We are better than any other school around. There was a time when Woodlawn was horrible and you dreading being there but you can't wait to get there and dread leaving there. The 2003-2004 school year was the best!
