This is a really great school!

Posted April 23, 2006

Soon there will be a new turn around in the school with older teachers leaving and newer ones in. This is sure to be good for the school. I have 3 children who have been students in Woodland and one more who will be a student in 2006-2007. If you are looking for a nice school. This is nice....just nice. The staff is mixed. I agree with the other reviews. The older teachers rule the roost and if your child does not fit into the 'Club' it will be a hard year for all of you. Way too much is aimed at MCAS. Children are in and out of the rooms being pulled from classes to learn how to pass the MCAS. Parent involvement is fair. Many parents do not want to get involved with the 'Club'.

I have four children in milford three have passed threw this school so far. They are just wounderful. If i have questions or i need answers. I get them the staff is on top of things. My boys have grown to love there teachers and have so much respect for them. Mr Bro has been a added to our family here in milford and he fits in perfect. Liz Childress and her team and Pam Larkin are awesome but they are always a team that is one of the key factors being a team working together getting the kids to learn and have a great time doing it.They are great at it. Thank you so much for teachers like them..

This school can be wonderful providing you get the right teacher...Mr. Bault the Vice Principal is very tuff on the children...If you have a child who is timid this is not the school for that child. Focus is mainly on MCAS and passing the MCAS.. No basics here. No lovey place here. Playground is unsafe parking lots and chldren are not to run or bring toys. There are some play ground items but are overcrowded. Teachers run the school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
