H.D. Woodson High School 1

I wish i can give this school 0 stars but sadly i can't.I am a new student at H.D. Woodson and this school is already stressing me out. One thing i will like to say is the teachers are so rude i recall one of my teachers using the n-word and talking about students.But that's not the only thing that they do,they will also give you grades that you never earn because they can't put it into the system.One of my counselors messed up my attendance and grades because they do not know how to communicate with the students,parents, or teachers.Many times i went up to the office to correct it but they wouldn't listen and they looked at me like I was crazy.I am determine to leave out this school so i can get a better education and have staff and teachers that communicates very with the parents and listen to the students concerns.I would not recommend this school to the students that wants to thrive and be successful because they will never give you the tool you need to reach that goal.Now i have to straighten out the disaster and confusion that they put on my record and no one seems to know how it got there.

My son is a 9th grader at HD Woodson and its not the best school on earth in terms of structure and academics- they dont even give students homework. However, my son is a 4.0 student who wants to make the best of his neighborhood school. Despite the violence and confusion that can be found anywhere, he decides to make independent decisions and take advantage of every program and activity they have to offer. He's sucking up all the scholarships the school has to offer since they are not many students who care. There is certainly little to no competition between students who want to learn. This is why I have him in additional activities outside the school to challenge him and prepare him for college.
