I have to be honest, I was a bit hesitant of taking my kid to a public school. Although my husband and my older daughter (NHHS alumnis) and I came from public schools, I felt that my son needed to be in a smaller classroom so that he can receive more attention from the teacher. After being here for 2 years, we are loving this school! A lot of parent and teacher involvement, enrichment and Stem programs are impressive, teachers and staff have been great, and all of the parents I have met are so friendly and down-to-earth. I think the school has done a great job of keeping everything organized from the drop offs and pick ups (I don’t think it’s chaotic at all), knowing all the kids names, dealing with after-school programs and child care/nannies all the way to ensuring safety and keeping a solid educational program for our children. Keep up the good work Woodland staff and PFO!
We love Woodland Elementary! Solid community among the parents and the teachers and staff are excellent. Great leadership, everyone seems to be friendly all around, awesome and fun events, and the school has a strong system and curriculum. My son is currently a 1st grader at Woodland, and we have been enjoying this school!
Nope done would not recommend this school, even though several friends kids went here some were happy and some were not, however I only know one other family that actually removed their child from this school so I myself was hesitant when this was our elementary. My son started kindergarten and I immediately had my reserves, the pick up and drop off is chaotic! So unorganized and zero supervision from any teacher or staff member, last week a father was floored to find his son sitting alone in the pickup line crying unsupervised! My son comes home daily complaining of a fellow student pushing him and taking his snacks daily , to my surprised this has gone on without one person acknowledging the situation until I stepped in this is only the second week! The class has several students that are very disruptive already having complaints from fellow parents and teachers themselves! My sons education and safety is number one , I only fear he will observe these other behaviors and possibly fall in the whole monkey see monkey do. I do not feel safe that my son is in a good place here at woodland and decided we are pulling him out as well. Very disappointed in this school .
My child currently attends Woodland and we love it. Awesome teachers and great parents too. In a surrounding community that can often be very pretentious, I find Woodland's family community to be much more down to earth. We also love that Woodland is just K-2 and Kaiser, the sister school, is 3-6. We feel it is less overwhelming for the kids and keeps them with peers close to their age.
