Woodville School 5

I have two kids that attend Woodville and couldn't be happier. There is a teacher and teachers aid assigned to each class and the teachers are approachable and involved. When one of our kids started having problems with attention, they helped have him evaluated and set up with an individualized program that was designed around inclusion in the classroom. He has since excelled in his studies and enjoys going to school.

My children attended the school for two years and we moved mainly because of the school. On the positive side, there are some good and dedicated teachers. On the negative side, a lot of the staff yell, have little patience, and overall do not seem to like working with children. The principal makes no effort to get to know the names of the children in the school or any of the parents unless there is a problem. Compared to the new school my children are attending, Woodville is not up to date with technology and the standards are much lower. This is not a challenging school and sadly has an overall negative attitude to children. Would not recommend this school.

Woodville is a physically beautiful school. My daughters do enjoy it there. Most of the teachers are really good-only one so far being too old-school and negative. The school is run very well and it is fairly easy to volunteer. However the PTO is a clique and the principal is condescending to the parents. My main complaint is that there is way too much emphasis on professional sports. Classes have been interrupted to watch the red sox, football is played in the cafeteria, this goes on all year! If they were doing more music, drama, art, things that my kids really respond to and get a lot out of I wouldn't mind 'red sox' week.

Woodville was built in 2003 and has good security. The interior is nice and clean, and the library is beautiful. Academically, my three children are doing quite well there. The faculty is well balanced in experience, a healthy mix of young and young in spirit. Of the eight teachers my kids have had, seven were outstanding. Discipline is handled well. There is high parental involvement, many opportunities to volunteer; opening doors at drop off, guest reading, chaperoning field trips, Lunch Duty, and more. Parents who volunteer are welcomed by appreciative administration staff and an active PTO. Sports are organized by excellent local organizations. Music and Computer clubs are fee based. Sadly, there is no drama, dance, or chorale; performance art is not a priority. Its a brand new school without enough parking. Retrieving children is a hassle especially in foul weather. Leaving the lot you can expect significant delays.
