School Reviews

  • Recommended May 12, 2014 - All sounds very intriguing. I look forward to talking to someone in person at the school, sitting in on a lecture to get an idea of how a typical 6th grade class functions, & review all academic & athletic awards while visiting different events that covers these two areas. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended April 14, 2014 - This school is the best private school in the Charlotte area. Yes, it is beautiful, has an organic garden that teaches my child about the importance of healthy eating by showing him where our food comes from -- from the seed to his plate -- and allows my highly energetic son to spend class time learning outdoors (including with Chickens!). But more than that it has given my naturally shy, reserved son an amazing confidence and love of learning that has transformed him. He started Woodlawn as a person who could barely look an adult in the eye because of shyness, and ended the year doing a solo poetry reading at the school talent show. He started the year wary of the wealthy show-offs and bullies he had encountered at a Lake Norman preschool, and ended with 11 of the best friends he has ever had -- all 11 of his classmates. The teachers at this school are truly amazing, and beyond the beautiful school grounds, are the real gem of this school. We have never seen teachers who care so much about the success of each one child. They are truly shaping our son into the kind of caring, unselfish, hard-working, confident person we want him to become, and we could not be more grateful. Thank you Woodlawn!! - Posted by Parent
