Great school...just for 5th & 6th graders...which is great. Those tween years are tricky, so keeping the kids with their own age group just makes sense. The teachers are experienced and committed to the student's success. The principal is great...an approachable, enthusiastic and hands-on leader for the kids and the parents. The staff is supportive & friendly. (I especially appreciate the dedication and wisdom of the school councilor...she is experienced & caring, knows every student by name, and she's always there to help them when they need it....Even if your child never has hard time at school, or socially, or at home...it's so nice to know that his classmates are getting the support they need. It's good to know that everyone at the school is valued.) This is a great school to transition from elementary school to the more structured and independent learning environment of middle school & high school.

Both of kids attended or attend this school. My kids are guided to succeed and addressed as individuals and not numbers. That makes all the difference for a child to look back at the school fondly.

Wonderful teachers and principal. They have challenge classes for each subject. I definitely recommend this school among all MI schools.

Central Woodlands is a fantastic school! The teachers are all overachievers - seeking to create a warm and friendly, yet intellectually challenging environment. All students are challenged appropriately at their own level. The academic expectations are high but not out of reach. Students at this school continue to score above 90% on their state assessment test - the MEAP. Besides the basics, students participate in Art, Lifeskills, Computer, Spanish, Music and P.E. This school contains only 5th and 6th grade students and successfully meets the unique needs of this age level - socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. My sons thoroughly enjoyed their time at Central Woodlands and were well prepared for academic life once they got to the middle school.
