Keeping our kids in our neighborhood schools is important to our family. Like many parents, we initially saw the lower test scores and were concerned. After visiting the school and participating in the Early Kindergarten Transition program, we were sold. The school is rich in language diversity. Children who do not speak English as a first language will not always perform well on standardized tests. So the picture provided by sites like this gives a snapshot but not the real story. Here's what I know to be true about Woodmere and what matters to us. One, it's a real and active community that is inclusive and welcoming. It feels like family. Two, the Principal is approachable and friendly but demands quality from the teachers and students and strives for success with a can-do attitude. Three, the SUN program is by far one of the best in the district. Four, the language diversity is a huge asset and our family is thankful for the kindnesses shown to us by many families. Five, they welcome parent involvement and engage parents and families in meaningful ways. We're proud to be a Woodmere family and we will stay and support our neighborhood school. We hope you'll do the same.

Woodmere elementary is an undiscovered gem of a school that is rich in both socio-economic and cultural diversity. The new principal is bilingual and makes an extra effort to greet everyone and make all children feel welcome and safe. Staff are SO caring and highly skilled and educated. My kindergartener learned to read after only a few months at school and both my children are ahead of where I was at their age in math and writing. The SUN program is spectacular and being in a lower-income neighborhood provides several perks (such as free meals for all student body) and programs.

Awsome programs, especially the SUN after-school programs. Great basketball team. The girl's team didn't lose any games in the regular season. Great music, PE and extracurricular activities. Low parental involvement, especially in upper grade. We love this little school.
