I do not care for the office staff. They have a huge issue with pick up and drop off. They have been doing this for years and still cannot figure out how to make it run smoothly. It does not help when they tell kids to walk home who are not supposed to and put kids on a bus when they are a car pick up.

I like that the school/teachers keep us updated daily and the teachers there are excellent with my children! My son has behavioral problems and was always in detention in his previous school but since he has been going here we have not had ANY phone calls. Very happy with their patience and the way they work with children.=]

My daughter went to kindergarten here and we really liked her teacher and she learned so much. There is always something fun going on and a lot of family activities. The principal was very friendly and the office staff knew me by name. There were two things I didn't like however. I did not like the fact that anyone can enter the school. There is no security or office check. I also felt that they watched way too many movies. I am all for a movie day every now and then but they watched movies all the time. Other than that we really liked the school and we will miss it when we PCS.

Great school! My 2 boys attended almost 3 yrs & they learned so much because of the teachers great dedication & as well great principle, Dr Campbell is a great leader, always involved with the children's activities & always working on making better changes each year. I never got involved but the PTA as well shows great support always had activities & fund raising going on. Me & my family had to pcs this year & my kids miss FLW because of their school.

Great principle & great teachers. I'd recommend this school to any family moving to Fort Leonard Wood. It's been 3 years since my kids have been attending & have never encountered any problems. I have 2 boys & they have improved in every area possible. I'm not only proud of my children but I give the credit to the teachers whom have done a great job with all their students every year! Go Tigers!

My children attended Wood Elementary for several years. Despite the never ending changes required of this school and high poverty levels, they have performed well. They have a caring and dedicated staff. You will not find a school with more compassion for students or school spirit. Go Tigers!

I found this school to be the worst ever. My children attended there for a year and a half and I was more the teacher then them. There standards are set very low and claim to be above state standard but can't believe that. My children have been passed through the system but can not accomplished their grade level work per the performance books I have purchased. Principal needs to quite concentrating on money and actually get all the non-sense out of the building and get these kids in the classroom learning. Too much play time happens!

By far the worst school (and district) so far. Barely any communication from teachers and principle and curriculum is horrible. Not to mention my son has missed so many days of school because the teachers and bus drivers seem to think talking is a suspendable behavior. If we are on FLW again nest school year he is either going to be home schooled or i will find a private school. This district has made me sick to my stomach.

not only did my daughter go there for kindergarden and 1st grade i substituted there. i would consider this the best school in my work history and inmy childs. Heaven-Leigh was so happy at the school and she learned so much. ms. cambell is a great principle and mrs. scott her kindergarden teacher made her feel completely welcome, safe and smart at this school. definitely 10 out of 10 for me!

Wood worries too much about kids who talk in the hall and punishing them. Behavior is such a focus that it seems like an alternative school.

I find this school just catering to the students who have 'perfect attendance'. Who cares if you make good grades, have good behavior or are a good student. I also agree that the teachers are forced to teach just so the students do well on the MAP test. I urge you to check out the MAP test scores for this school~~horrible.

I agree with your assessment of the LEAP program. Thayer seems to really work to see that their students make the 'grade' (IQ points) with retesting and pushing for the child's needs. Other schools, like Wood, talk big, but don't push to meet the students needs on an individual basis. LEAP could use a facelift.

My child had a good experience at Wood because of the individual care and concern of the teachers we have had. Overall the district itself has an antiquated gifted education program that could use a serious overhaul. While the school was been good for my child, the coveted LEAP program failed to enhance his academic abilities and focused too much on his IQ scores and creative thinking. It really didn't do much to challenge him academically. Since attending a magnet school out of state, I can now reflect and see the needs of Wood and the district. Perhaps it's time to come into the 21st century and realize the needs of children can be met with more modern thinking.

Substandard teaching especially in 4th and 5th grade. Check out this school's map scores especially in the above mentioned grades

Teachers just teach around the Map test. This is the worst school I have seen.

Wood Elementary has a great environment for learning. The students are there to learn and it shows. The teachers put the student first.
