I once read a study that said one great teacher can change your whole life's trajectory. Both my sons had their "one great teacher" at Wood School...and not even the same teacher! The teachers are wonderful: It takes a very special group of professionals to inspire both the kids who need a little support and also the kids who need a challenge. With such a truly diverse (socio-economically, culturally, and academically) school, the teachers have to be exceptional. And they are. The students are terrific, also. Both my boys have made good friends here, and my (now) high schooler has remained close with the kids he met at Wood. I can't recommend this solid, positive, Wood middle school experience enough.

My daughter was new to the community when she started 6th grade at Wood Middle School and felt welcomed by students and staff alike. She made friends very quickly which was wonderful because she tends to be on the shyer side. Her teachers had innovative ideas and seemed to balance the academic rigor with creative projects. My daughter has always loved art and she actually had 2 projects displayed at the Alameda Library. The band teacher is nothing short of amazing and they put on 2 fabulous concerts! Wood is a wonderful community and a good fit for our family. I've been able to make connections myself and really feel that sense of a positive and caring community that is so important for these middle school years. I would definitely recommend this school!

I was very disappointed with this school. They did not properly honor my child's 504-Plan which was in effect before we entered the school, they employed at least one teacher who was inappropriately verbally and emotionally abusive toward my son due to his medical condition and in spite of his previously filed 504-Plan (and of course the school backed the teacher in her behavior which was just one step below the abuse other students were allowed to behave towards him). Thanks to the ineffective "anti-bullying policy" here over a year ago (hopefully it's improved this past year), my son was assaulted on numerous occassions by other students on campus and bullied so badly due to his medical issues that he became afraid to complain, and had to be pulled from this environment. One of his friends who also had documented medical issues endured similar experiences at this school during their time here. He did have some good teachers that were kind and compassionate; though the bad experiences definately outweighed the good. After removing him from this school, his grades and test scores improved thanks to being able to finally get an education safely.

My son went to Wood and my other two children are looking forward to going there next year. It is a great school with a community that has rallied around it's success. My son was in a school play, went on a trip to Ashland Oregon with his drama class and participated in activities even though he is quite shy. I found the teachers and staff very supportive and innovative - important in middle school!

I have two kids at Wood and they are thriving academically, socially, and emotionally. Initially I had some reservations due to Wood being in program improvement and I am glad I gave Wood a chance. Based on two years of experience there, I have found that the majority of teachers are very good, caring, supportive, and communicative. Many collaborate with one another, are innovative, creative, and passionate about teaching. There are a number of excellent programs at Wood, unparalleled by other middle schools, including an amazing music program (concert band, guitar) and art program that includes ceramics. The math, science, English language arts, and history classes provide challenge, involve interesting projects, and have the right amount of homework that allows students the time for other activities outside of school and to have balance in their lives. There are sports such as basketball and volleyball and the student leadership class organizes a number of fun extracurricular activities. We like Wood a lot due to it being a medium sized school where most kids know each other. It is a great comprehensive school that has much to offer.

Wood is a great school. My daughter is a sixth grader here. She has been able to adapt very nicely. The school has wonderful teachers, students, and staff, and the PTA is fabulous! The community at Wood really care about the students well being, and are dedicated to ensuring that they have a successful future. Go Beavers!!

i went to this school for about a year in sixth grade. There were nice teachers, and of course the mean ones. I did not like this school. The academics were too easy and i felt i didn't learn very much. But overall, Wood has great school spirit, there were tons of dances, and the other students seem to get along most of the time.

Mr. Reis, the beginning and intermediate band teacher, is truly awesome! It's amazing what he can teach those kids to do. Very impressed with him. As for PE and core teachers, they're okay, not the best but decent.

Upsides: some very good teachers, and a student body that has high spirit. Downsides: problem with principal turnover these past few years, and the facilities (like many public schools) are in need of updating.

the students are very friendly, and so are the teachers. as a student it seemed as if the school years went by really fast, and it was easy. if you're a parent i suggest you choose this school for your child.

This school was nearly closed last year. As a result, a number of teachers and administrators took jobs elsewhere. The school had a bumpy start this year, but the new administration has been making strides in upgrading communications with parents, and implementing some new teaching programs. There is now homework assistance after school four days a week, and a new journalism class has recently been added. There is a very strong sense of community at this school, and the PTA has made this years focus infrastructure and community building. The PTA now has a website open to members, so communications extend beyond scheduled meetings. There are trained peer mediators, and regularly scheduled events after school to get the kids together. My daughter has been thriving in this environment.

Such a great school. Great memories.. from teacher and friend alike. The old ones knew what they were doing.. but they were there far too long and these New teachers are far too young to learn the ropes.

As a previous Wood Student, I must say it is a great place to make memories with great friends and teachers. Now that I am in High School, I now realize how great many of the teachers truely were. They made class fun, interesting, and avoided many lectures and when we did have letures, they were fun. Also, the teachers really knew what they were doing and could answer any question. I had the best 3 years of my life there, but I wouldn't go back now. Now that the school has made so many budget cuts.

I am a former student from wood middle school aand I think the school taught my alot about for my life ahead. The school may not have a whole lot of sports to play but you become like a family with the rest of your teammates and you make alot of friends from different schools through other people. I had a great 3 years and i wish that I could do it all over again. The parents did help out alot in the fundraisers for different activities such as the trip for close up and the trip to spain. They also helped out aroud the campus by helping teachers out with controlling the very few not so well mannered kids. If I had kids I would send them to wood middle school to get a great education at a public school. The teachers put your child first when it comes to education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
