I have also pulled my children from this school and am very disappointed in the leadership and quality that the school offers. There have been many families who have left and many teachers who are not happy with the leadership at Woodrow. Administration does not create a good, positive learning environment for the students. They are never in the classrooms helping the teachers and they do not keep updated with any student progress. As I have been told, they simply hand out the curriculum to teach and go back into their offices for the rest of the day. My hope is that more families will be educated on the type of school this really is and begin to see what is 'really' happening behind closed doors.

I m very disappointed by the negative reviews posted on this site about WWA. My children have attended WWA since it first opened. I can personally attest that any time I have had a concern over the years (and I ve had some big ones!) I have found the teachers and administration to be responsive, understanding, and willing to help. I also have first-hand experience with the staff and intervention team reaching out to struggling students who don t officially qualify for special services. The bottom-line is that WWA is full of dedicated families and excellent teachers who don t deserve the negative comments posted here. My hope for this upcoming school year is that the families who created so much negativity did choose to leave their strategy of spreading gossip rather than trying to initiate change has done a huge disservice to the entire WWA community, including their own children.

I have pulled all of my children this year because I have been extremely disappointed with the administration and the lack of quality of many of the teachers. I do want to state that there are a few exceptional teachers that need to be acknowledged, but a couple have been fed up with the administration and have left WWA. I think the most shocking concern is the maintaining of troublesome staff year after year. The office staff talks down about the school and creates a back stabbing atmosphere. They school has dedicated parents and some very dedicated teachers but needs a strong leadership and is not getting it from the current administration. Those in charge need to wake up and make some big changes if it wants this school to succeed.

We have also taken our children out of this school and will be returning to our neighborhood public school. The administration is very weak, unresponsive and unprofessional. Bullying has been, and continues to be a major problem school wide. The middle school is a nightmare. Teachers don t have the training/experience to deal with this age group and it shows in the inappropriate discipline and lack of classroom control. My child was constantly frustrated by the children whose out-of-control behavior took away from his learning time. The board refuses to hold the principal accountable. If you are not part of the board of directors clique then your concerns will not be heard or addressed. The sign outside the school claims that WWA nurtures, motivates and excites children to learn. We could not have found this statement to be further from the truth.

I have been very disappointed with this 'charter school'. My step son has been 3 years behind in reading for the last 3 years; the counselor is supposed to meet with him on a weekly basis and does not, all the teachers keep saying 'he is just so close' but nothing gets better. There has also been consistant bullying going on at this school and the staff there don't seem to do anything about it but make excuses. Needless to say next year he will be attending another area public school.

We have been very disappointed with WWA this year. The current principal s leadership skills are weak and ineffective and he is non-responsive to parent concerns. Discipline and bullying are a huge problem school wide. We are looking at other options for our children.

We've been at WWA for 2yrs. I have kids in 1st & 3rd grade. We left the neighborhood school because my older child was often bored, and there were no options to challenge him other than pulling him out of class or skipping a grade. At WWA, my children are thriving academically. They learn facts and ideas at least a year ahead of their friends in non-Core Knowledge schools. We have a fantastic group of teachers and administrators who constantly go above & beyond. Also, the school just expanded and it's wonderful to have a (large) new gym, computer lab, and more room for the kids' activities. Next year I'll be the proud mom of 3 Wildcats!

We have been parents at WWA for 6 wonderful years. Parent involvement is very high. The new build is beautiful. We now have new gym, library,& tech lab. The teachers are nurturing and caring. The middle school needs more extracurricular activities- sports.

We have been very happy at WWA. Our Kindergartener absolutely loved school and always came home excited and ready to learn more. The school has very good communication to the parents and the parent involvement in the school really makes a huge difference.

This school is very parent/student oriented. It is on the small side which I like. They are a new school and are expanding.

We loved our time at Woodrow Wilson Academy! The teachers staff and parents were wonderful. My son learned more in half day kindergarten at Woodrow that a full day at our previous school. I only wish there was a school like Woodrow Wilson where we live now.

We generally like WWA, with a few exceptions. The lack of a gym, band, sports, etc. is difficult. The elementary school is very good, but the middle school has a few questionable teachers. However, the art and english teachers are exceptional!

Both of my children attend WWA and I am very happy with the education that they are receiving. The small class sizes along with outstanding teachers have made my kids learn to love school.

Posted October 23, 2004

Both of my children had previously been in private schools. I am so happy that we made the change to attend WWA - my kids are thriving academically and socially. It is the best school in the Denver Metro area by far. The teaching staff and administrative staff are the best. I highly recommend this school to everyone.

My children have been attending since 2001, I have one in 4th and one in 8th. Woodrow Wilson has an amazing teaching staff, mostly young, with brilliant teaching methods and willing to try new things. The facility is limited at this time but there are plans to expand in the next year: 2005. With a large volunteering parent community and excellent PTO and Board of Directors, each year provides more variety. The middle school is just ramping up, the kids got lockers this year and they have their choice of electives, while maintaining the basics in the Core Knowledge curriculum. With the small class size, you rarely see the social issues found at larger middle schools. The younger grades are phenomenal, they've been rock solid for years and the CSAP scores have gone through the roof.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
