Our children have attended Woodland for the last 6 years and we have had a wonderful experience. The teachers and staff are highly approachable and genuinely concerned about your child's education. The extra reading support is fantastic as well as the art and music curriculum. There are many extra-curricular activities for students and there is strong parental involvement. Many events are also held outside of the school day so that you may interact with other families and teachers (school picnic, art show, fair, dances, etc.) Overall, our family has had a fantastic experience at Woodland!
Woodland is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers and staff. They offer many activities for families during the year, so you really get the close community feel. My daughter is very happy with this school and so are we.
Woodland Elementary is a great school with a great staff. Would love to see more advanced programs to keep ALL students challenged. Foreign Language and Band/Orchestra should be brought back as this benefits all. Avondale gets a bad rep from people who don't know it or attend. Parents with kids who do attend should speak up with the many positives! Get our district back on track!
The principal and the teachers seem very engaged and enthusiastic. I think the curiculum is strong, but could be further layered to provide varying levels of difficulty to keep the stronger students challenged, while being responsive to the needs of the other children. I would love to see them add an advanced or gifted program. The school seems well funded with appropriate access to computers, but there is always room to continue enhancing in this area.
I moved my kids from private school to woodland elementary. I was thinking its going to be a disaster. Instead I got more than what the private school had to offer. Principal and the class teachers are very dedicated. Even PE , music and art teachers are great. During semester conference, PE, Music and art teachers were available to answer our questions. They customize and individualize each kids needs. Parents involvement is absolutely fantastic. Working parents and stay at home parents equally participate. School leadership especially the Principal is the best of all! Principal is standing in the gate when school bus drops and picks them up. She is dedicated to the improvement of the kids.
