15 Parent Reviews for Woodlawn High School

Woodlawn High School has a new principal this year and there has been a bit of staff turn over. I have a child in Gifted and one in "General Population". The Gifted children get a superior education. There are TONS of programs (more than Baton Rouge High) and the teachers are great. The General ...  Read more

This school is all about the dress code, even down to requiring students to purchase their in-house, poorly made and overpriced $15 polo shirts. Unlike the rest of the parish high schools, which require a simple shirt with a collar and plain khaki's, Woodlawn restricts the children to khaki's with EXACTLY ...  Read more

Pros- The school is great. I am a senior and about to graduate. I love this school. I gave my heart to this school. With so many new programs and so many new teachers.

It has gotten even worse with the extra kids they ...  Read more

Dispite the fact that I do like some of the teachers, the front office and administration at this school are some of the rudest people I have ever encountered in my life. I personally have also had problems with them not communicating my sons progress with me, but if you initiate conversation with the ...  Read more

This school is absolutely horrible academically and the students dont get the attention that they need from the teachers or staff. They are worried more if your shirt isnt completely tucked in or if your ID card is on backwards. The school is really nice, but they dont use the money for new books or ...  Read more

I graduated from woodlawn 1 yr ago and I know from 1st hand experience that it is a horrible school. The only thing that school cares about is the dress code and your id badge. They spent too much money to build a nice looking school but no money to aid in what the students need like new books or money ...  Read more
