Quality of your child's education depends a lot upon what teacher they happen to be assigned to. Some teachers on this campus are exceptional, hard-working, and professional. Others leave a lot to be desired: too much down-time, extended recesses, and 'busywork' worksheet. packets.

I absolutely LOVE Wooden Elementary! The staff is friendly & energetic; the teachers are outstanding; the parents are fantastic; and best of all, the students are amazing! I wouldn't put my children in any other school!
