Woodland Hills is a great school that has provided many opportunities for my daughter to grow as a student and individual. The amount of support she receives from the staff is outstanding. There are many fun events for students to take part in, which provide for a well-rounded school experience.

I LOVE Woodland Hills! It is a family! They are a Model School and the values they teach are displayed every day by the way the students and teachers act and speak. Very impressive. Our teachers are excellent, but go above and beyond and care about each individual student! This school has many "extras" like Stem club and family nights, bingo nights, Super Kids fun day, science fair, talent shows, showcase etc. Our PE Teacher is a favorite among the students and he keeps them moving! Our music teacher is outstanding! This year alone she created a Kindergarten Christmas musical, a 3rd grade choir that performed at the Baron's hockey game, and 4th grade is going to Showcase! They participate in the OKC marathon and the Spirit of Survival. The PTA is top notch and the Booster Club keeps all the wonderful sports in order! It's the whole package of superb education, amazing principal, awesome teachers, phenomenal counselor, involved parents etc. There are many experiences for the children. My kids are valued and respected by everyone in the school as am I! Woodland Hills is WONDERFUL!

Woodland Hills is a great place to go to school. My children are reaching all their academic goals. There teachers are so supportive and provide a warm, loving teaching environment. The school does not have title eleven extra funding but finds different fun ways to raise money for the essential things the school needs. When we transferred to Lawton, OK, Woodland Hills so was welcoming to our kids and it has been a wonderful experience.

Woodland Hills has been a great school for my children. We move quite a bit and go through a lot of different schools. We will be sad when we have to leave Woodland Hills because all of the teachers are very friendly and caring. The knowledge my kids have received at Woodland Hills is well worth my drive every morning. The before and after school care provided is a plus for me when ever an emergency pops up I know that my kid will be excited because of all the fun they have after school!

Woodland Hills is a school full of caring people who support children and their parents. The school does not receive any Title 1 funding and the district is always running under budget. Teachers and staff are not given the resources they need to properly educate their students. Thankfully, the PTA, the principal, community support, and many others give their time, money, resources, and more to the school. My child has excelled while at Woodland Hills. The best thing about this school is the ability to be involved. Join booster club, PTA, volunteer in the library, coach a sport, attend evening programs- you choose the level of involvement. The more you are involved the more time you get to spend with your child. Go Woodsmen!

I have 3 grandsons attending WHS. I visit often to volunteer, attend school assemblies, classroom and PTA events. At the student led assemblies I love seeing the students achievements recognized and their celebration of each other! Singing, history, civics and positive behavior lessons are incorporated in the assembly. WHS is welcoming and has a great, positive environment. It sets high academic standards for all to achieve and grow! All our LPS schools need to provide better funds and focus to meet gifted students needs including individual IEP's. So happy my grandsons attend WHS!!

This school is the best! The teachers work together to help students succeed! Parent involvement is awesome and our PTA is superior! Our students become leaders in their learning and we use the 7 Habits of highly effective people and Great Expectations models of learning. Woodland Hills is a great place to learn and grow!

Woodland Hills does have a new principal & councilor. I would still like to see updates to the web site to keep parents informed. They will no longer have an Art teacher, but they will have a new computer teacher. There are so many changes to the entire Lawton Public School system, it will be interesting to see how things go for this year.

This year will be so exciting we have a new principal who is really involved and really cares about each student. A lot of teachers have retired and new ones have replaced them! The school uniforms have been moved to Fridays which all the kids wanted. This school is not title 1 which means they arent just given tons of money so we have to have fundraisers. Parents get involved if you want to see a change for the positive!

This school is ineffective, the principal and teachers are self absorbed. Its all about the money and not the quality of education and caring about students!

The perception is this school is one of the best in Lawton, my daughter has been there for 4 years and as a school they have failed. I don't understand how a strait A student can be tested on a national level and the test show she's below grade level. I'm very much aware that Oklahoma is rated at the very end nationally, but this is absolutely ridiculous. As far as the teachers are concerned, I have only had the privilege of knowing one teacher (out of the 4 yrs) who I felt was teaching because it was a passion and not just a pay check. I'm lucky enough to be military so we'll be leaving in the next month. #ohhappyday

This school is surrounded by money, they talk about nothing but money, and send flyers home at least twice a week asking for money. I raise my children to be humble and appreciative and this type of selfish environment gives me the creeps. They have the children chant these codes of ethics like some sort of brain-washed child, drone army... They preach anti-bullying yet there have been several incidents when my child was not supervised and was bullied, on a daily basis. When I asked him why he did not tell the teacher he explained to me that the children had him cornered and he was unable to get to a teacher fast enough before they yanked him away. Where is the faculty? My daughter has been sent to the office several times and I was never informed. How am I to fix these situations if I know nothing about them, simply because the school wants to save face? It strives for excellence yet this CogAT program it expects these children (and parents) to slave over for hours after school is just exhausting. What happened to the children coming first and incorporating their learning styles? The constant top rating this school has strived to achieve at the mercy of these young students is sad

Not impressed at all. I enorolled my daughter here because I purchased a house in the surrounding neighborhood. Her teacher told me she would contact me the minute my daughter started slipping in class and said nothing until the conference and then decided to advise me of the parent portal. She is singled out and bullied and teacher does nothing. Teacher blames her for all wrong doings in class without questioning other kids' motives. This is supposed to be one of the best schools with the best teachers but to be honest, Eisenhower was better and more consentious about their pupils.

Woodland Hills is truly a great school. My daughter has been there for 2 year. The entire staff is very caring and friendly. I recommend every child that wants to have fun while learning, attend.

Woodland Hills is a great school for my boys. During 07-08 school year, I was a single parent working and attending school full time. My oldest son had behavioral problems and trouble completing his assignments during school. Through it all, the adminstrative staff along with the principal kept it professional and handled my situation with deep concern. The principal did not give up on my child and I appreciate it. It did not matter how many times in a day I called the school about my boys they were there to help. I would like to thank the two receptionists (they know who they are) for a job well done.

Over the last 11 years, I have consistently had a child attending WHS. My younger child is currently in the 4th grade. This is a fantastic school. The faculty and staff are outstanding educators who honestly care about each child. The parents are very involved with PTA and are always willing to go the extra mile to help provide the school with any needed resources. Don't trust me though--just look at their test scores! These kids are getting a top-notch education, and many are landing in scholarship programs at the high school level. I know--my older child is one of them! The Woodland Hills school district is exactly where you'll want to live.

This is the start of the second school year for my daughter. She is currently in the fifth grade. I have had nothing but problems in this school all together. When calling the front desk which I have done several times noone ever seems to have any info on the simpliest of things that go on at the school. I have not had a great experience at this school. My daughter has not been treated well here, nor have I .

I went to this school and now my son attends. I had my doudts about my child going to the school due to the competivtive nature that it has in sports. I contemplating private school and decided we would try public. My son loves it I like it and have not looked back. The principal is an outstanding role model and although only gone through kindergarten the teachers were caring and loving to my child. HIghly recommended
