This school is way better than it used to be with all of the new teachers along with the principal who has a clear vision of the direction that she wants the school to go in.Lets not forget the parents who are stepping up and being a part of the progress, as well as the school board members who only wants the best for the kids.

I think that Woodbine Elementary School has really worked hard to improve its educational programs. The teachers are infusing technology and integrating higher levels of educational tasks and assignments. It is a school that does not have a lot of financial resources; however they go after every grant that will improve the children's educational experiences. Parent involvement is shown in many ways - beginning with packed houses at the concerts and plays as well as the school's fun field day. Overall, the school is striving to meet all it's children's needs.

I am elated over the school year my child is having! The class sizes are small and the building is finally clean. The teachers are great and willing to help your child in anyway they can. Some of them go above and beyond their job discription to help and encourage your child to do well. The teachers and superintendent expect excellence and nothing less and I am all for that. Woodbine is a great school so if you haven't seen it lately, put away all you have heard or seen in the past and call for a tour. You will be pleasantly surprised!

It needs so much help in every way. One thing that i can't complain is the principal. She tries her best all the time. But the teachers, parents even students; can't say the same.

This is a great community school that is improving on a daily basis. The culture and environment has been improving over the past 5 years.

If you want your child to have a good education send him/her to Woodbine Elementary. I am glad to say that i was a graduate of Woodbine Elementary and i am now a straight A student in HIgh School. So if you are looking for your children to get a good education send them to 801 Webster Avenue Woodbine New Jersey.

The Woodbime Elem. school is not the best place to get your children the good education you want them to have. Unless you like your children to be cramped up in a class room with more than 25 students. In this school the only speacials they have are Gym, Health, Libary, and computers. Some of the cilderen at the school are very crul. The school is very strict about the uniforms;the shirts have to be tucked in and you can only wear a sweat suit when you have gym. At least the teachers try to teach us things;while the princepal walks around the school all day wanting people to say,hi. Well all I have to say is that you shouldn't send your children there if you want them to have a good education.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
