Woods Intermediate is a great school. They have caring teachers who work hard to individualize learning for the students. They offer music, computer and art to all students. Parents are encouraged to participate by attending parent nights and other activities.

It's a great school. My children went from A/B honor roll in the 2nd grade, to this year getting straight A's in the 3rd grade. Great teachers. Caring teachers. They make me feel like it's their passion to educate, not just their job.
