This school gave my husband, myself, our 5 children and 7 of our 15 grandchildren a fantastic education that allowed all but me to further their educations at great colleges. The teachers are very concerned about their students and helping them in every way to get to where they can further either their college or other career they desire.

We moved to Woodbury because of the school system and have not been disappointed. The course offerings are substantial for such a small school and the majority of the teachers have been excellent. Like any public institution, it has its challenges, but we have not regretted moving here for a moment. My only regret is that my son will be graduating soon. Woodbury High truly is the heart of our community.

I have been a resident for 3 yrs and do not like the fact that the middle school and high school are together. Middle school kids should be in a school by themselves. The school itself is average. The cirriculum is average and I am looking for more for my children. My son plays alot of sports and the township is not organized as far as sports outside of school.

I have been going to Woodbury Schools since I was in 2nd grade, I am now a junior. When I first attended, I thought i had an excellent learning enviorment, but for the last few years, it has steadily gotten worse. There are a selected few teachers are not completly up to par on how to teach in a classroom. The students have a bad attitude towards daily life, and I am just not happy with the cirriculum. I am very upset to see a school, that 20 years ago was involved with the community, and that has alot of potential to be the best it can be, has slowly made students wish they were not students here. I am very unhappy.

'I have been a resident for the past 30 years and have put 3 children through the Woodbury School system. I have slowly watched the quality of education excel over the years. We are extremely proud to say our children attended and still attend Woodbury Public Schools.

I have been a resident for the past 21 years and have put 4 children through the Woodbury School system. I have slowly watched the quality of education diminish over the years and have recently had to send my youngest child to a private learning center because her literacy and math skill level was 3-4 grades below the grade she was in. We have spent the summer tutoring her and sending her to academic camps to help elevate her understanding and skill level. We are currently researching other methods and schools to send our child to because our confidence in the Woodbury school system has suffered greatly and our childrens education and success is our main focus and concern.

The demographics of the school shown here are accurate but are far different than the city as a whole. There is a large portion of the city that sends their children to private or religious schools and as such feel that supporting the school's upkeep with tax dollars is not important. The school however understands this and as a result needs to fund many different levels of training to support many different levels of capabilies. The school has developed several sucessful Ivy league students and also has some former students as guests of the state (in prison). If all of the resident children of the town attended this school it would be quite normal and above average academically.

Woodbury let us down with our special needs child. The staff was not trained to handle his needs. Our 'normal' child has done fine. He enjoys most of his classes. And even has favorites! Most of the teachers are caring and involved with their students.
