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.
