Woodglen is a great school.We enjoy all the before and after school activities.Principal, teachers and office staff are great to work with. Communication between parents and teachers always has been excellent. We would recommend Woodglen to everyone. Thank you Mr. Drobney and Woodglen Staff.
Currently i have two students @ Woodglen and we have every reason to absolytely love this school. Woodglen staff is amasing and very friendly. Thanks to everyone for volunteering their time for after school activities. My daughter who is in High School already,stiill talks about Woodglenn and how she misses coming here and she can't compare Woodglen with any other schools. I would encourage every parent to bring their children to Woodglen. Special thanks to Mr. Drobney and whole Woodglenn staff for making it all happen in this school.
This school is far better then district 50 school my children attended. The PRINCIPAL is extremely involved in the schools activities. What ever happened in the past with this parent group needs to stay there. I think things need to be let go. I am a new parent and love the activities before and after school. I have had parents try to tell me differently but in my opinion...don't let one bad apple spoil the basket! Lunches are nutritious. My child was also injured and I was notified right away and felt that they were cared for with great diligence. Also, I had a problem with some paperwork and the front office staff helped me through it with great professionalism. Thank you Wooglen STAFF!
Woodglen is a wonderful school!! Currently they offer 14 after school clubs- there is something for everyone. The teachers work hard to make sure my advance student continues to be challenged. The school put on an amazing field day last May ( can't wait to see what they have in store this year). I have only known the kindergarten and first grade teachers, but have to say they have been amazing for my student. There have been several parent nights, that the whole family has enjoyed. From top to bottom, this is a great school!!
The sense of community at this school is superior. I hate when people compare apples to oranges! The specials are amazing, they have excellent special teachers. When calling the school I have nothing but excellent service. My children love going to school. They have enjoyed choir. The breakfast program has been a real life saver.
Four of my children attended Woodglen over a span of 13 years. The first 7 years were fantastic. Then came the change of principles and many staff changes. The current principle does not care about anything but test scores (because the scores are integral to his job). He is very controlling and condescending and does not promote parent involvement. Second, third and fourth grade teachers are fantastic but I will not send my youngest child to this school because the Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers are terrible. They cut music at this school and kept art which is comprised mostly of coloring. Community and spirit activities are not encouraged by the principle and field day and assemblies are a joke. I am driving my little girl 10 miles away from our home to a charter school just to avoid Woodglen.
The best part of this school is the after school program. My daughter went her for K-6 and I never saw how poor the school was until I had a better school to compare to. My son has been going to a different school for his kindergarten year and the difference between the academics, level of professionalism with teachers, level of thought that is put into each day cannot even compare. I am very disappointed in Woodglen.
Woodglen leaves alot to be desired. For the most part the teachers we have had have been been great. However, when it comes to the "specials" that are offered. It has much room for improvement. There are very little clubs offered, and fitness days are usually diappointing. There isn't much positive momentum currently. The current Principal does not encourage parent involvement and only wants, and allows activities and events in which he plans. It is a very diffucult school to be involved with on a volunteer level.
I love Woodglenn!! They have such good teaching strategies and love helping students!! I was so happy I went to this school! I went to a different school and my grades were low, I moved to Woodglenn I my grades raised fast! I will miss the loving teachers! They have so much passion towards kids. Pick this school!!!
woodglenn is a great school! Awesome teachers to work with the lovly students every single student should be very glad to go there!!!!!They are very protective of every child! Any student would be so happy to be at woodglenn, and im sure every teacher would be delighted to have more wonderful children!!!!!!!!!
My son has been going to Woodglen for over two years. The kids fall in line because it is very disciplined. They have a new principal who is committed and working hard to improve the school. I have been very satisfied with the 3 teachers that I have experience with. The next year should be better since the district has opened a new school which relieves the student count at Woodglen.
I did not like this school, I went here from Kindergarten to Fourth Grade, it was horrible!!! The kids that actually work at grade level get ignored, and the kids that don't work well at all get all of the attention and the others are left to be bored. Unless your kid is struggling in school, find another school for them!
I love the drama program the school has to offer. The drama club puts on an unbeliveable production each spring. The teachers are involved and do everything they can for each student.
