If your child doesn't motivate on his/her own this isn't the school for them. The teachers/students stay together for 2 years because of the Primary/Intermediate/Upper structure and that is just too long. Everyone is sick of eachother by the second year. My child just quit trying and has learned to hate school due to our Primary experience. There are better schools out there for the children that aren't "typical" students. There isn't a principal at all so there isnt a good way to resolve problems when the teacher isn't getting it done.

I highly recommend this school. The teacher/student ratio is the lowest in town and the kids curriculum is outstanding.

I have 3 children who attend WLC, and all of them are doing well. I couldn't ask for a more caring staff or a better overall program. Students at Woods are taught to think and create. They are taught to appreciate different cultures and different points of view. At the same time, they do well on standardized tests, so basic skills are obviously being taught. Every year, the kids do independent research projects--starting in kindergarten. These projexts allow the students to focus on a subject of their choice while learning research, writing organizational, and public speaking skills. It's a wonderful prgram.

Both my children attended this school and are now doing well in college. They especially benefited from the opportunity to learn research and writing skills, as well as ongoing opportunities to present their learnings to a group. The staff is excellent and there is great opportunity for parental involvement. exceptional.

I loved going to Woods. The teachers are very hands on and if you ever need help with anything they are right there to guide you, not do it for you. Woods feels like a family when you go there. You are encouraged to associate yourself with children from other classes and grades. The only thing lacking at Woods is funding. THey have inovative ideas that lead students to do their best but don't have much room to opperate.

This school operates exceptionally without the aid of a principal. Any problems are handled by committees and in the classroom.
