i have had two children go through this school. both had an excellent experience. honestly, i have no complaints at all. the teachers are extremely committed and energetic, they really care about the students and they work HARD to help everyone succeed. there were a few situations where some kids were acting bully-ish toward my kids and the teachers handled it perfectly - they protected my children while guiding the other child into a more positive direction, rather than responding negatively, which just reinforces a sense of alienation and makes the situation worse. my kids have fond memories of their time there and they often want to go back and visit their old teachers. that says a lot! there has been a lot of upheaval and flakiness with the principals in and out over the years, but it has not stopped the teachers from doing a wonderful job.

I absolutely loved this school! My daughter's teachers were wonderful! Dr. Crowe is great, and knows all of the students by name. My daughter was challenged and did very well. Her teachers let her work at her level, and she amazed me with how much she learned. We are so sad to be moving!

I'm very pleased with Woodland, the teachers, and the principal. We moved here from out of state where my 2nd grader was attending a private school. I tried to tour two other top rated Johnson City schools, where one school couldn't figure out how to give me a tour and the other left that job to a low level admin assistant. I called Woodland one morning and asked to stop by that day. When I did, the principal Dr. Crowe stopped what she was doing and gave me a personal tour of the school. Neither she or the teachers have let me down since. When my daughter was feeling unchallenged, I met with her teacher and she immediately 'amped' up the academics, addressing everything from classroom friendships to a slight speech lisp. I couldn't he happier!

I am a grandparant of a 1st. grade student there. He was excepted last year as a kindergardener. I am so excited he has learned so much from his principle who is very supurb, and his teachers. It makes a huge difference were you send your children to school. I feel like he is getting the best education there. He is a tution student and every dime has paid off. Thanks Woodland Elementary for giving my grandson the opportunities he needs to grow. His parents and himself love to participate in all the activites there they have to offer...

Our Family has been apart of the Woodland team for 8 yrs. I don't use the word team loosely. The teachers we have experienced have all teamed with us in giving our children a wonderful learning environment , and a bright future. I am proud to be a parent of 3 Woodland students, approaching on #4. I am sure my last child will also benefit from the caring staff at Woodland.

Woodland is a excellent school. The teachers and staff are so friendly and seem to really care about the students. Mr. Turner(principal) is one of the kindest people I have ever met. His concern and care for the students is refreshing. I hope other J.C. schools will look to Woodland as an example of leadership and integrity.
