I have both children attending woodlawn. We have been lucky with good teachers that care and listen. The principle very active on a day to day basis. We can't compare this to a big town education availabilities, but for a small town it has been good. Ps. There is some bully activity.

I think woodlawn elementary is a great school for kids whho live in the sebring area. Especially if your child is not happy where he or she is right now. I think it gives the kids a challenge and my kid has made a huge difrence in his work since she switched from cracker trail elem..

I moved my kid from Lake Country Elementary in Lake Placid, FL a couple of months after school started to Woodlawn. I noticed right away a HUGE difference in my son, he went from having a hard time and have a knack for getting into trouble all the time to getting great grades, making friends and loves school again. I feel now he was not be challenged enough at Lake Country so he was bored. I highly recommend Woodlawn if u are gonna be living in the Sebring area. I am a very happy parent and could not be happier that my son is a student at Woodlawn!

My initial thoughts of this school were not good. After my child got in the school and got a great kindergarten teacher it was great. The principle and vice principle are great, funny, and love the kids. All the kindergarten teachers were nice and loved the students. We have since moved but would send my child back to Woodlawn!!!

Sebring schools reveal an abysmal success rate. Moreover, given the limited range of courses offered,and prevalent grade inflation that diploma once achieved isn't worth much. Gifted and disabled children are virtually neglected with totally insufficient programs. The administration is entrenched and works on the old boy network without regard for the needs of individual children or the concerns of their parents. Parental involvement is minimal because it is so futile. Challenge this district and they threaten and intimidate you. If at all possible avoid moving here with children unless you plan to homeschool or send your child to private schools.

After moving from Michigan, I was very dismayed about the quality of education offered to students at Woodlawn Elementary. It seemed to me as though the curriculum is several years behind Michigan systems. Instead of adjusting the curriculum for my children, the system adjusted my children back to their level. I think testing should have been completed and the children taught accordingly.

I moved to Sebring totally unaware of the school system. After less than a year, I've moved again. It was that bad. I didn't find any parental involvement, no motivation, I would recommend to anyone moving to Sebring with kids don't do it unless you can afford private schools.

My children started the school year 03-04 in January. The whole family visited the school before they started. I wasn't thrilled to hear that they didn't have an Art program, Foreign Language class, or PE everyday. I do volunteer and am pleased to say that I get to work with and watch some really good teachers in action. I have noticed that most of the volunteers are retired people who don't have children at the school. I don't see many parents there. I wanted to join PTO but they hold most of their meetings at 2:30 (which not only do I find odd but hard to get to). The students of this school do have quite a few bad apples. Luckily my children haven't had to really deal/intereact with them. Overall I think the school is ok but what school couldn't benefit from improvement.
