This school proved to be what every public school should strive to be. The principal; Dr. Price and her faculty, proved to us that one does not have to spend thousands of dollars on private schools to get dedicated teachers and great learning.. Our child is the only one I know who looks forward to Mondays, so that he could be with his teachers and his classmates. Need I say more?
This school is a treasure!! The Principal and Vice Principal are amazing. There are only 15 students in my son's Kindergarten class. I am also extremely impressed with with parental involvement.
WECS is a great school! My family has been here for the past four years; my kids are in 1st & 4th grade. My first year at WECS was not pleasant; the atmosphere was not welcoming to new parents who were not active volunteers. But as a working parent it is very had to volunteer and provide for your family. Anyway, my second year and so on has been nothing but a pleasant surprise, the staff and teachers are exceptional; especially Mrs. Lawther/Mrs. Finies, Mrs. Alt, Mrs. Schuetz and Mrs. E. Walker. These teachers are very loving, caring and highly qualified teachers. They care about these kids just as if they were there own. The other teachers are wonderful also; I just have never really had a one-on-one experience with them. I love this school and will remain in this district so that my kids can continue here.
Unfortunately, my experience with Woodland was a horrible one. The principal, Noris Price was very nice and encouraging, however.
My son attended a private school for two years, until we decided to put him at Woodland (for financial reasons and for hearing so many positive things about Dr. Price; the principal. In the month or so he's been there, it amazes me how much he's learned. We were getting ready to move from our current home, but b/c of Woodland, we plan on sticking around as it turned out to be a great district to be in!
This is a wonderful and nurturing environment for my child. She is learning at a pace that I can barely believe. Everyone that I have come into contact has been 100% above my level of expectations. I will continue to live in this neighborhood just because of this wonderful school. The principal, the teachers, the PTA, ....they are a great team; and my child benefits.
Woodland offers a core curriculum that is better than some private schools. The specialty areas of music, art and physical education have an excellent teaching staff and offers a highly competitive curriculum as well. Our media center and television studio is exceptional. The faculty and staff at Woodland is caring and appear to truly enjoy working at Woodland. New parents should know that this school is very family-friendly. Parents and family are always welcome to visit or volunteer.
Woodland is a great school! My child has been at Woodland since kidergarten. He is now in 3rd grade. The high quality of the instruction, the caring teachers, the great lidership provided by our Principal, Noris Price, the different programs (music, band, orchestra, art, Spanish, physical education, etc), parent involment, to name a few, make of Woodland the school I always wanted for my son so that he becomes a well-rounded boy.
Better than any Private School! I speak from experience! Having had my children in an elite Private School for the first 4 years of their life, finding this Public School with a superb quality of education that supersedes any Private School's, was like finding a diamond in my back yard! Woodland has unprecedented parental involvement, an incredible art program, foreign language, and an 'out of this world' science lab that is attended by every single child in the school from PK - 5th and Special Needs! My children have never felt more loved and given the encouragement to excel beyond even what I ever thought they could! With the team work of Woodland's Staff and Award Winning PTA, it is THE BEST school for any child! The MOST BEAUTIFUL aspect of Woodland is we embrace our diversity; be it social,racial,economical,mental or physical! What an incredible place for ANY child to learn!
Woodland is a fantastic school! Every student is well educated - whatever their level, and all students are taught using the Talented and Gifted Teaching Strategies, not just the students who test into the TAG program. This is my oldest child's sixth year there, and every year he has had wonderful, caring teachers who challenged him to work hard and do his best. Every parent is involved up at the school, as that is required by the educational contract.
We have been at this school for 5 years - 2 children, both children are in the TAG program and are well served. It is a school where the principal and staff all know the children's name and who they are- it is a very well rounded education with high expectations and the diversity makes it the perfect place to teach your children about the world.
This school is superb! The leadership of the principal, Mrs. Price is extraordinary. I have had two children there and have been pleased with the dedication of the all the staff. The environment and educational level is comparable to an academic excellent private school. Woodland is an institution where execellence in education is met at its finest. Parents are active participants in their children's education. It was an excellent choice for our children since moving here from Michigan.
Excellent school!! All 3 of my children attend Woodland and were are proud to be wildcats! Mrs. Price is the best and shows great leadership with her staff and the children!
This school has a warm and caring atmosphere. Great music and art teachers. It is the only school I know of that has a staff parental involvement coordinator. Serves all children well from special education to TAG.
