This school doesn't focus on academic learning and personality development of the kids. I would rate it as very poor. We moved to this school in mid session from another IUSD school, but was surprised to see that they are far far behind. I expected some basic level in all IUSD school, but probably they are the worst. Here teacher is least bothered what the student is doing individually. They make kid a star for one week in a year. For me that is not enough, because that doesn't improve child's personality. It has to be continuous effort. My daughter was already reading fluently when she entered kindergarten. In previous school she was given more challenging tasks. But, after coming here she doesn't feel like doing something more. She has been demotivated.
I am disappointed in the behavior of my son's teacher. She plays favorites with the students. She routinely puts down many of the kids in the class as she is teaching. She makes inappropriate comments and gestures about certain children. She puts her index finger up to her own neck and mimics blowing off her own head. This is in reference to how she feels about having to teach certain children. I've been told that there is nothing that can be done since the teacher is tenured. Not what I expected at all, especially given the school's stated value system.
great school with a wonderful staff! thank you for all you do for the children!
The teachers are great, the kids are great, I love the year-round schedule, and the values taught help my child learn how to be a well-rounded, respectful individual.
Great teachers+ great values + great parent involvement = great students! Everyone wins at this school.
The teachers make this school! So do all the dedicated volunteers. So does the wonderful principal. It's a school based on values and education. I feel blessed that my children have such a wonderful school to go to!
Woodbury teachers are dedicated professionals that love kids, teaching, and learning.
I volunteer at the school almost everyday and love the community feeling I receive. The staff is dedicated to the well being of the students and truly enjoy their jobs.
The principal, teacher, and staff are absolutely the most caring people around. I wish I had a school like Woodbury growing up
extraordinarily dedicated teachers who integrate the values of respect, integrity, compassion, cooperation, positive mental attitude, perseverance, and intitiative as they teach the California state standards. Each child is 'met' where they are and motivated to grow in their potential through programs such as RTI and EIRM and a math approachthat encourages kids to truly understand concepts taught.
The staff is amazing and really care about whats best for the students
Though we are at a new school site, this school has been around for years. The teachers and principal have kept the school's mission alive and unchanged since I went there 15 years ago. We teach the core values across all subjects: Cooperation, Integrity, Respect, Perseverance, Compassion, Initiative, and Positive Mental Attitude. We hold these values very high and model them daily. These values are a part of me today and have helped me be successful in my life and I love being able to pass them on to young students.
