College Wood is a good school but is overcrowded and gives way too much homework. My daughter is in 3rd grade and does well but it is not unusual for us to spend 30 minutes to an hour a day after school on homework. There has to be a better way of educating our children. I feel like they are just ...  Read more

The school isn't over crowded. In fact, they recently opened another elementary to handle the students. All of my children attend College Wood and they are doing great in school and love College Wood.

The previous poster mentioned looping. This is no longer done at CW. We've been happy overall with our experience there. Principal to parent communication has not been the best in our three years, but hopefully will improve with a new incoming principal

This is an awesome school in an awesome school system. There is 'looping' between 2nd and 3rd grades and between 4th and 5th grades. I have been very happy with the way my children have learned and have grown attached to their wonderful teachers. I would recommend this school to anyone moving into ...  Read more
