Too crowded!!! Not enough attention on the individual student needs. Be prepared for your child to have to deal with the typical self-centered, entitled Woodbury students. I've had older children attend this school and was disappointed on so many levels. I have another who is going into 6th grade and I am looking at alternative options. Test scores are high because it's an affluent community and the majority of the parents are college educated. Lots of peer pressure to be the BEST in grades, academics, etc. I do have to give credit to several teachers who are very good at what they do. However, there are several teachers that are sub par and should have been dismissed from the district years ago.

It's too bad that one score skews the overall rating! My daughter finished her first year and the parents and teachers were awesome. I had frequent communication with teachers and staff and they were always extremely open. My daughter was stretched academically and I her growth was evident. The overcrowding should not be an issue soon, as boundaries just went through a major (and emotional!) overhaul.

The school may be crowded, but the teachers are great and the extra curricular activities are as well.

This is a great school! Wonderful education, teachers and a principal who manages and takes action when problems occur. My child had a wonderful 1st year at Lake Junior High.
