Both my kids attended this school and moved on to the main campus. Love this school for the warm learning environment it provided. They have learned life long skills at Woodward North that my son is using at college now.

We have two girls at Woodward. The school provides a loving environment for the kids. Our daughters are excited to get up every morning to go to school and enjoy the wonderful learning environment it provides.
