I used to attend this school last year. Not many of the students did their best at school and they were (not to be mean) kind of lazy. With that said, the school was too easy. I got straight A s without even trying! However, the band was awesome! You could tell that the teacher did not work for his paycheck because he would always go out of his way. It was not only the teacher, the students worked so hard coming after school, before school, and auditioning for honor band.

You guys are pathetic! I don't go there and thank God for that. My friends all tell me it is a horible place with rude teachers and disrespectful students. Im an A student, but in a magnet school with the Highest classes A's mean nothing if it is not chelllenging! One of my brothers friends ditched him because he was a 6th grader. The 6th graderr was bullied! It is my school zoned school!

I am a former student from Woodbury, and I may have only went there my 8th grade year, but I would have to say it was the best school year I have encountered so far. I was very involved with all the extra-curricular activities, and I would have to say that their 8th grade Algebra program was amazingly helpful.

My daughter has been to 9 different schools buy the time she relocated to Woodbury Middle. She is now a 7th grader. 2nd year at this school. She likes all of the teachers and really seems to excel in all areas. They have outstanding classes including Band, English, & Science. They offer excelerated classes for students who are above average. Love the cheerleading, sports, Jr. Honor Society, Jr. Varsity Quiz,Science Club and other programs. This is one of the best we have seen thus far. The staff are always helpful and they allow you to keep up to date in your childs progress in all subjects via an online program that allows you to talk to their teachers directly.My husband is in the military and we will leave again after this year. I can only hope that the next school will be as good. :)

we recently relocated to Las Vegas from the midwest and my daughter has adjusted well at woodbury. She likes the teachers, students as well as the classes. She has also received alot of support from the administration. I think it is a great school with much potential.
