I am glad I pulled my child out. This school is for the elite who are friends with the teachers. Some teachers are excellent; others not so much. The principal always sides with teachers and does not seriously responds to parents complaints. My child is happily in another cluster where parents concerns are treated with respect. If your child is not from a middle class home and advanced, don't send him to Woodlin. It will kill their self-esteem. Don't be fooled by the ratings or the glowing raves about the principal. Look at the schools scores that had a dip in 2012. I pulled my child out just in time. He went from low proficient to advanced in one year.
My child has been at Woodlin for a year and we love the teacher/parent community of the school. The leadership is top notch including teacher commitment to the school. PTA involvement is fantastic.
Our experience during eight years at Woodlin has been fabulous. Exceptional administrative staff, who understand and adore the kids as well as being excellent "administrators", teachers who motivate and make school fun, and incredible parent involvement make for very happy and successful students. One of our children was accepted to a magnet program and did not go. We have no regrets with that decision.
woodlin is a warm and welcoming school. my son is excited to go to school everyday, there is always something to look forward to and the staff keeps the children motivated with all the special eccentives and programs.
The teachers, administrators, staff and volunteers are the best! I have never had a question unanswered, my son has made more progress this year than I could have hoped, and everybody really cares about the students and their families. Outstanding school.
Woodlin is a wonderful, supportive environment for kids to learn and grow!
Woodlin ES is a cheery place, where kids, teachers and administrators all seem to be at their best and happy to be doing what tehy're doing. The sense of community is very strong. We feel so lucky to have Woodlin on our street and part of our lives!
Woodlin has been a warm, supportive place for my daughter to begin her school career.
Woodlin provides an environment where parents can be deeply involved in their child's education. The school gives us an opportuntiy to show our children how the world connects with them.
The teachers are so involved and caring. So many parents are active and involved. We have a young, dynamic principal and an active vice principal and experienced office staff that keep everything running smoothly. It has been a wonderful place for both my sons.
I love the dedicated teachers and administration along with the very active parents and PTA.
I have a special needs child that attends Woodlin; he is in his second year attending.(grade 5) I must say that....our experience has been a great one! I adore his teacher and the rest of the teaching body.
Woodlin E.S. is a wonderful school w/ a dynamic and creative principal and excellent teachers (though of course, there are exceptions as there are in any school). The student body is mixed both racially and ethnically, and is truly integrated -- your children will be friends with children from all different cultures and backgrounds, and it works very well. Our youngest, 3rd at Woodlin, is entering 4th grade there and has been very happy at the school, happy enough that we decided to keep her there rather than moving her to the gifted/talented separate school.
I am the parent of a kindergarten girl. Thus far, I am pleased with the teacher, the leadership in the front office. As a parent I feel welcome and am eager to partner with tthe school and other paretns to give all the children the best school experience possible.
Wonderful school, small class sizes, after school clubs, very active PTA. Diverse and high achieving. Excellent conflict resolution and behavior management.
We have a K and 1st grader at Woodlin and have been very, very pleased with the education our kids have received.
My daughter is in Kindergarten at Woodlin and and is really thriving! By mid-year she has gone from reading simple words to sounding out entire books. She also has made tremendous gains in math and can add and substract on a much higher level than I thought she was capable of. Most important, she absolutely loves it and her teacher.
Woodlin Elementary is one of the best schools in this area, which is saying a lot. The academic programs are excellent, with advanced placement math, special reading programs, etc. Music programs are excellent, with most students participating. There are many after-school programs. The PTA is very active, and there is a great deal of parent involvement.
I attended Woodlin Elementary school, and I truly believe it is one of the best schools in the county because of it's diversity, staff and students thats have the drive to excel in school.
The quality attention that my children have recieved at Woodlin is a step beyond my realistic expectation and the personal bonding with the seeds of knowledge will have my children prepared for a bright future. Thanks Woodlin!
