I am a parent who's child attends Woodridge. Coming from NY I'm used to certain things when it comes to education. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in this school. Not many parents participate which doesn't help the school strive to be better. I've made many attempts to contact the PTA to set up events to help raise money for the school & NOBODY has contacted me. What is it going to take for my child to get a good education.

My school is one of the lowest rated schools in Dekalb county and I would like for more programs to become available so that we can become one of the top rated schools.

I have been a parent at this school for a long time. I love the teachers and staffs here. When I send my kids to school in the morning I dont have to worry about them because I know they are being loved and taken care of.

I have a six year old son that attends woodridge elementary. although i like the fact that the teachers call when the students have disciple problems, I feel that a lot of them just don't know how to handle their students in a professional way. Their answer to every situation is remove the student from the class or send them home. Children go to school to be educated and if your not a very good educator you should not be teacher. I also think that parent involvement is good. A lot of parents work these days and are not able to come to the schools everytime there's a problem with a child. I also believe that there should be more male teachers to assist with the young boys at this school. There are a lot of female teachers and not enough male teachers. Little boys sometimes respond better to male teachers.

I would say I also give it a 3 on a scale of 1-5. I have to children that attend Woodridge and they are doing good academically. My only concern is that i research different schools around the area and all of them have a tutorial program maybe twice a week and they also drop the students off at home, I have been calling to see when will this certain program become available especially for the children that are going to take the crct, but they still have no idea. I also agree that certain activities in the school are unorganized.

On a scale of 1-5, I give it a 3, b/c it does not have a proper playground for the kids.The carnivals are very low budget and unorganized.The teachers a good but sometimes lazy.The old Principal, Mr.Jenkins seems kinda spacey, but the new one seems better but not greatly professional.I like the attentiveness of the teachers and how they will call immediately when the child has discipline problems, but I think they let the kids do not see who's boss.

Woodridge is a good school. The teachers really care about the students. Students have music, art, and opportunity to go to the Computer Lab at least once a week. Teachers keep parents informed about school activities, but parental involvement is very low.

I love Woodridge!!! I used to go there last year. All the teachers are nice and fun to be taught by. I was the secretary of the school when I went there. I just miss that school a lot. I hope they keep on doing better. Oh to the parents reading this, Mr. Jenkins is very nice and cool.
