When they refuse to give ny son the services on his iep he is entitled to and it is nothing but a battle than no I do not feel there is persistence or anything else as a positive experience for my child.
The principal lied to us several times. He tried intimidation tactics on my son as well to get him to go along with his lies. It didn't work. That told me he had no compassion whatsoever. Wrong field he is in.
My son was bullied at this school throughout his time at Woodland. Bullying laws not enforced. The principal is less than professional. He has a smug attitude and should not be in this position as he looks like he just rolled out of bed. They never followed through with his iep either. Everything was a battle in that school between bullying and iep. So glad he is done there. Milford so far shows me the school systems lack in many areas. Looking into other schools outside of this town.
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.
