I am a current student here at Woodland as of 2009 and I have had a great experience here. Sure, some of the teachers aren't the best and should be replaced but overall it is a good school. This school as of 2008-2009 did not meet the Georgia AYP Standards due to low test scores, the school is striving to improve and is doing a great job at that. A++ School!

I went to Woodland High School all four years of my high school experience. I am a 2004 dual-seal graduate who moved on to go to a prestigious college (Berry College). Of my graduating class, there were many who went to prestigious colleges such as Berry, Shorter, Mercer, Presbyterian, Georgia Tech, among many, many more. I know in the graduating classes following me, there are several more students who went on to Berry. Woodland was, and I feel safe enough to say still is, an amazing school. They have a wonderful performing arts program, a good visual arts program, several athletic programs and pretty sound academic programs. As of now, they have four different academic tracks for people who have different career interests and/or different ways of learning; Tech Prep, College Prep, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate. All are valuable; it s just a matter of finding your best fit!

My daughter graduated from Woodland 2-years ago and my son will graduate this year. Overall it is a good school. It provides as safe an enviroment as a public school possibly can. The education you get depends on what you put in to it. That is to say you can take easy classes that don't provide much education or you can take advanced placement classes that will challege the students and provide a very good education, for a public school. I don't think much of the current principal or assitant principal. They both need to be replaced! The school needs to become a charter school so parents have more control and the curriculum can be expanded beyond the restrictions of State requirements.

I am a student at Woodland and must say that I love it! My main reason for going here is for the Performing Arts program and I have loved it. The Program here allows you to develop your current talents while ensuring knowledge of new talents you did not know you had. It is a great school for the aspiring actor/dancer/singer and although rehearsal hours are grueling (your hours have to be flexible)its all worth it when the end product is college level or better shows! The academics are also GREAT and I would recommend this school to anyone!

Woodland High School is not only a contender for excellence in the hierarchy of the education of the future, but a socially ideal environment for the growth and education of the individual student. WHS challenges every student to attain excellence at their specific level of academic achievement, and offers them a wide variety of extra curricular activities as well as a superior all around performing arts program. When people come to Woodland, they are usually amazed at the level of student activity in the classroom and as an interactive student body. Also, the number of students challenging themselves with advanced coursework has certainly seen improvement over the years. Overall, Woodland High School is not inadequately prepared to educate students, but is one of the most qualified schools to provide a basis for the future of its students.

I am a sophomore at Woodland. Here are my thoughts: firstly, the teachers are excellent. They encourage me to do my best. Second, the performing arts is great. I have a chance to make pottery in school, and keep what I make. I love my pottery class it is a great stress reliever! Third, parent involvement could be much better. They need to know what is going on with their children. Attending Woodland is a joy. My biggest problem is the administration. They do not take care of the students needs. My schedule has been messed up every semster I have to fight tooth and nail to get in the honors classes. My schedule only got changed when I used my mother as a last resort. Another thing is that counselors encourage you to take the easy way out. School is suppose to be a challenge, not an easy way out.

Woodland is a very good school. This school has even greater potential. The biggest problem with this school is overcrowding. This is due to students being allowed to attend that do not live in the district. Many, many students who attend live in other surrounding counties. This is not fair to Bartow County residents, especially the ones who live in Woodland's district. There needs to be more control over out-of-district admissions.

I am a parent of a Freshman at Woodland. I think this school has alot to offer not only in extracurricular activities but mainly in academics. This school is challanging and that is what the kids need today in order to be prepared for tomorrow. I am proud to say that my son goes to Woodland High. I like knowing that the teachers and other staff members are willing to do all that they can to help each student achieve their highest level. I think the IB and AP courses are giving the students something to think about besides going to school and just getting by. I would encourage every parent to find out what is going on at the school and get involved. Woodland High keep up the great work that you are doing.

I am a student at woodland. I really enjoy attending woodland because it offers it's students a wide variety of extracaricular activities and the IB and AP programs offered are great. The teachers at woodland are very dedicated to providing an excellent education to their students and are dedicated to their profession.This is not to say that woodland is not without its flaws, Woodland is becoming increasingly over populated reducing the amount of time teachers and staff have to help their students not to mention that the extremely limited budget of all the schools in the county does impact the types of learning experiences the teachers are able to provide their students with, i have seen this first hand as part of the AP science program because we have been unable to do many of our labs due to the lack of funds. All things said Woodland is a great school.

The children of Bartow County are very fortunate to have such a dedicated staff of teachers like the one's working at Woodland High School. The new principal has the vision to incorporate new ideas to help them with basic skills and the English department is staffed by collegiate level instructors. For those students who continue to need repeat instruction, the faculty is patient and well versed in dealing with special needs. Bravo!

I'm a senior this year. I have been going to Woodland since my freshman year. The teachers are great, they wanna help the students. They get involved with the students, they interact with them. The one thing I know about this school, is the coaches. They are great, they really bond with their team/squads. I have cheered for Woodland for 3 years. Shedd and Wilson are the best coaches I have ever had. (They really know their stuff). We have had our ups and downs here, but we get through them. I wouldn't wanna go to any other school. Oh! Our performing Arts in unbelieveable! They put on a show once a year for the little kids at the elementary schools.

I love Woodland it's a great place to be your child will meet so many cool people, and there is a wide choice of out of school activities to participate in. I think the teachers at Woodland and the friends I have made have truly changed my life. This is a great place to be. You can be heard no matter what your opinion. The sports teams are incredible. And we have the best performing arts. You should come visit and see how great this school truly us.

I am a student at Woodland High School and this has been my fist year. I have seen WHS from a freshman's point of view this year, and not only were the teachers very inviting and friendly, but my peers were also very well mannered and welcoming. It provides such a wonderful atmosphere to learn, make friends, and grow as a person. I am involved with many extra carricular activities some including chorus (all state), drama,and many clubs. I am also part of the I.B. program which pushes me to do the best I can. It is a very rigorous program with many expectations, but even this year it has paid off greatly! Woodland is a school like no other!

Woodland School of the Arts is an increadible school like few others. Woodland excells academicly leading the county and high in the State as well. Woodland features the International Baccalurate program which is an International program of study which incorporates core classes (Mathmatics, Social Sciences, Science, and Language Arts) all with local, national, and of course global focuses. In addition the I. B. program leads it's students to learn a second language and Philosophy classes. Woodland also offers the more common accelerated program of Advanced Placement. in addition to it's unparralled academics Woodland is also an Arts school having arts classes ranging from Pottery I through Dance IV. The Schools 1000 seat Performing Arts Center hosts over 4 Theatre productions a year featuring Musicals to fast paced Revues, in addition to Coral concerts, Piano recitals, and even Operas. Woodland also has outstanding Athletics. This and much more makes Woodland an unbelieveable School!

I'm not a parent, but have attended WHS since my freshman year and know that this school strives to meet academic requirements. I'm not involved in any extracurricular activities ot sports, but know that it is a magnet school for both. This is a great school and has really helped me prepare for what I believe that my future holds.

I was a student at Woodland from the day it opened and that was one of the best decisions I've made in years. I had the opportunity to take a class at another local high school and there was no comparison in the quality of the schools. There are so many opportunities at WHS. It seems like the teachers and administration really care about academics. Students can take part in the IB or AP programs, a variety of clubs and athletics, and feel free to express themselves in the performing arts program. During my senior year the counselors got really involved with the seniors by trying to find scholarships and helping students go to college that may otherwise not have the chance to go without assistance. I will be attending Berry College this fall and feel that by being a part of the AP program at Woodland I'm more prepared to step into college. The only complaint I have is that the school is a little overcrowded but that's to be expected in this area and I think the staff at WHS handles the problem to the best of their ability. I would advise anyone new to the area that has kids in high school to check into Woodland because I personally think its overall the best school in the area.

Woodland is a great school that really pushes acedemics over everything else. Students have many options of involvement due to the fact that it is a performing arts magnet school. There are also state ranked athletic teams which give the students the best of both worlds. Students are generally open and express themselves freely.
