The teachers are Great at Woodland! The principal is HORRIBLE. Woodland has been a wonderful school up until this year. It's disappointing.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 6, 2007

My daughter completed fourth grade at Woodland and will return soon for fifth grade. She had a wonderful, happy, exciting year w/the Smarties: Mrs. Talbott, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Mersiovsky and Mrs. Saunders. All these teachers were outstanding. They had so many groups to 'know' and did so, very well. We're very lucky to have teachers of their caliber in such a small town. I'm actually amazed (moving here recently from large metro) that we're able to do this, attract such teachers. Sadly, we don't pay them enough. I don't buy into the argument that we can't afford it. (We're lucky that most of these superb teachers aren't the primary household income--that's my opinon on how we do it.)
