We moved to Edwardsville specifically for the schools and have not regretted a single minute. Having gifted children can be as challenging as having a special needs child. This district and this school have stepped up to the plate and offer curriculum and teachers with the training to handle both. I am amazed at the support and extra thought given to challenging gifted students while also teaching to the entire classroom at the same time. Great job!
The teachers and staff are excellent at Woodland Elementary. They promote participation and involvement of the family in the students education.
I was surprised to see the ranking of Woodland when searching school reviews. Edwardsville SD is by far the most equipped SD within 30mi of Edwardsville. Not only are the schools consistently excelling in sports and competitions, but the amenities the are unsurpassed. The tutoring (including speech pathology) is free, the PTO is loaded and puts the money to excellent use, bullying is nil. The principal is very nice and attentive, giving prompt individual assistance. My son's 3rd grade teacher initiates communication via phone and email, promptly, about my son's progress and any concerns regarding slight changes in behavior. The school has a extremely resourceful website (see: http://www.ecusd7.org/woodland/) and a separate website from which parents may review their child's progress. This school is why I am on this site looking for something comparable when I move. Any parent considering the area, you will love the schools!
I really like Woodland Elementary School! It's given my children a chance to learn in a safe and caring atmosphere!
We are the very happy parents of two Woodland students! Great environment...great school, great education
I have two sons, one is school age. This school is very nice, the staff is great and very friendly. The only problem with this school is that the third grade does not have art, which I think is important at any age. His teacher sends home a paper every week stating waht they are doing, what tests they have and the spelling words for the week.
