Map of Woodcrest Junior High School address.
July 03, 2012
Woodcrest is a great junior high school. My son attended Woodcrest for two years. He had excellent teachers for math both years and is highly advanced in this area. His social studies teacher always pushed him to do his best, never accepting the minimum from him. His science teacher encouraged a love of science so deep that he participate in the District science fair on his own. His English teacher in 8th grade made sure he had a great deal of experience with writing and literary analysis that will help him in high school. The administration and office staff are always friendly and helpful. They know all the students by name. My son always felt welcomed here by all staff members. In regards to comments about behavior and expulsions, this school has very few expulsions compared with other junior high schools. I know parents of students at all of the other five junior highs in the district. From what I have heard, the behavior at Woodcrest is better than three of them and now worse than at the other two. My only complaint is they do not have enough electives, but this is due to District funding and not the school leadership.

The new Principal, Mr. Bustamante, has brought a new enthusiasm to the school. He has been active in maintaining and enhancing music & sports programs at the school when all the other Junior High Schools in the district have been scaling back. The facilities are beautiful & the staff is gaining new enthusiasm under the new leadership. For the first time, thanks to history teacher Mr. Ivy, this school is also sending studnets on Spring Break to Washington D.C. this is also a smaller Junior High for the disctrict & therefore the staff is able to better get to know the students. Overall test scores will rise under the new leadership.

It is a beautiful School with great teachers and a principal and vice principal that want the best education for our children and they do a great job at it. My son's grades have improved over 50% since starting Woodcrest. Thank you!

Even though kids are in temporary buildings, the quality of education is given high priority. Faculty and staff know the kids and appear to do well in keeping them motivated.
