I like going to this school because of the great teachers, studnets, academics, and after school activites. I'm never bored but and I'm always learning something. It's the best of both worlds!

This is a school i like very much for the obviously firm disciplinary measures they take.
—Submitted by a parent

I am so glad my child is no longer at this school!! Numerous times I visited my child's classroom. The teachers would spend majority of the class period trying to discipline and control the class. I witnessed these students throwing paper, walking out of class without permission, not bring pen, paper, nor books to class, talking excessively, playing, and more! These teachers are burned out by the lack of motivation of the students and the lack of parental involvement. I witnessed class assignments being so easy that the teachers were basically giving the students an easy A! If education is important to you, then do not send your child here!

Wow! That describes the experience of everyday life at Wooddale Middle School. The teacher are great and, unlike some teachers, actually go out of there way to help you understand. It is extremely racially diverse, although parent involve could use some work. The standard classes get as much respect as the honors classes do, and they also get as much hard work and challenges. Wooddale is was like a second home to me, and it really pains me that I had to leave.

Wooddale Middle School was an excellent school. I attended 6-8 grade and I loved it. I've gotten into trouble more than a few times but overall I loved it. I especially loved Mr. Kyle he was my favorite he and Mr. Higgins were awesome. The school had alot of team spirit when I attended and their were more than a few parents that were involved. The administration were strict but they had to be. if I had to choose on my last year there between Mr. Pointer, Mr.Kyle , or Mr. Evans on who gave more leadership and put more heart in the school I would have to say all of them.

I'm a studen that goes to the school. I think that wooddale can do more in the safty issuse. I experence many students being harrased and not confortable coming to school. I am one of them. We should also inprove in our teachers. Most don't try to teach. They just give you anything. They are worrided about planning their summer vacations. Not to put the school down or anything but, the students are unbehaved and are very bad. Not all of them but most.
