My children have attended WPS since pre kindergarten and have thrived. Their teachers have consistently proven their commitment to providing an optimal environment for learning and character development. I continue to be pleased with how my children are cared for and challenged.

Everything and everybody at Woodland is amazing! We have been there for 6 years and our kids love it! The teachers are dedicated and caring and really love to teach. The entire staff provides individualized attention and care by getting to know each child and showing interest in their well being. Woodland is a nurturing environment where our kids continue to flourish. And our head master, Adam Moore, is the best. He is involved in all of the day to day aspects of the school and we love his leadership and enthusiasm.

My children have been at Woodland for 5 years now and I am continually impressed with the quality of the teachers and staff. It is obvious that they truly care about their students and their students success both in and out of the classroom. I am so thankful that my children can be a part of the Woodland Community.

Woodland has been and still is an excellent choice for our family! There is a tremendous focus on developing the WHOLE child academically, socially and spiritually. The curriculum is designed to reach every student with special attention to individualized instruction, personal responsibility and independence. Opportunities to nurture extracurricular talents are also available through their diverse sports and creative arts programs. We are confident that when the time comes to transition to high school, our daughter will be thoroughly prepared and successful.

Teaching gifted children requires deft handling. These children need intellectual and sensory stimulation. But they also need guidance and careful nurturing so that they grow up handling their special gifts and themselves appropriately.
Strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future.
Getting your child into a competitive school is a tough assignment. Don't let the many challenges overwhelm you. There is a simple solution.
