WHS has been getting some unfair bad press lately. Although it is not perfect, there are many great things happening there including fantastic FFA, FHA, Speech and Debate teams and a world class music program that saw students playing at Carnegie Hall last year. There are many opportunities for kids to take AP classes and numerous kids have gone on from WHS to go on to top colleges in the country. Finally, the big secret of the town of Woodland should get out: WHS has higher test scores than Pioneer High!! Look it up!

The teachers make it a great place, most of thew students do not take advantage of the prestigious faculty within the educational facility...the students bring it down...but the opportunity for success is definitely prominent...

We have some awesome, positive teachers who treat the students with respect, encouragement and dignity, and here the students learn to love to learn and excel; and we have on the other side a few teachers who seemingly hate and distrust all students who should be working with research and not with people.

As with any public school there are great teachers and great students at Woodland High (they are there an I can name names). The good things don't need to be fixed, so here are some thoughts on improvement: 1) Disruptive students that do not want to learn should be removed from this school. These students make it difficult for the teachers and other students. 2) Special-ed should be for kids with learning problems not a dumping area for delinquents (they should be at a seprate school) 3) Empower the teachers to control their classrooms. 4) In class montitoring by administration. The kids know what is going on, does admin? Kids that are out of control set the bar low for the entire school.

I'd like to point out that it is not a very safe school at current.

The quality of instruction varies widely in that some teachers do not seem to believe their students can succeed, while other teachers are encouraging success. The push to put students in career paths when they first start at the school and the use of vocational testing as a primary tool to determine what a teenager (Freshman) should choose as a career seems a bit unrealistic. More emphasis should be placed on graduation and university entrance requirements combined with what a student likes and dislikes subject-wise to help them better prepare for a career their choce. There is a wide range of academic programmes to cater for the remedial through to those wishing to take honors and AP classes in almost all learning areas. The art program programme is top class, and the music program is improving, the school produces many top sports stars and has an wide range of extrcurricular activities.

I am a staff person at WHS. I am relaying a few opinions of students. -Security Guards still are found chatting with students who are 'ditching'. My 2 cents to add would be that we have a few students who really don't belong here (they need a more restrictive environment) and the Security Guards are doing what they can to keep those students under control. -ETC has not been available since sometime last fall, unfortunately. My opinion as a staff person is that we have a ways to go, but there's been a huge improvement over recent years.
