This is the best school in a 10-mile radius. The teachers are incredible and the sense of community is remarkable. The staff go well above and beyond typical practice and genuinely care about the students. The building is in rough shape, but don't be scared away - there is much more to a school than the four walls. I can't recommend Woodbury Elementary strongly enough. I am also an educational researcher and can tell you that they have the best data (e.g., test scores) in the district when you consider several factors.

Academic programs are great, they really foucus on music and there is lots of parental involvement

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11. The MCA-II is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Minnesota. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
