This school works really well when you're lucky enough to get a good teacher/classroom placement for your child's needs. If not, the principal will listen to your concerns but will not make any changes in student placement. It takes a lot of parent effort to get help in a struggling classroom. The ...  Read more

Great place, excellent (mainly) teachers & staff. My daughter loved it here (she just 'graduated' 5th grade). Kids Inc is also a much-needed gem, with great staff.

We've been at West Woodland for two years, first and second grades. First grade was amazing, completely due to the fact that our son had a fantastic teacher. Second grade, however, has been a real struggle. The homework assignments he is receiving now, in May, are exactly the same as the assignments ...  Read more

We have been at West Woodland for four years and had the most amazing, creative wonderful teachers for those early grades.

It is a great class for learning subjects as well as having good behavior towards others. The teachers have been very supportive and communicate with me often, whether his behavior ...  Read more

Do not be fooled by the one single award the school has received. This is a very traditional, discipline-driven school where individuality is discouraged, and bad (very bad) teachers are protected by a pro-teacher principal, and parents concerns are ignored. True, the PTA is great, but ultimately powerless ...  Read more

We've been at West Woodland for 2 years. We switched to this school from another school and are very happy. The teachers are great, the parent involvement is amazing, the principle is wonderful, the kids are happy. The activities are terrific. Excellent school.

We have been at West Woodland for 4 years with two children there. It has been a great school for my kids. We love the community, the emphasis on high academic standards and the caring community. We have found the principal responsive and of the 6 teachers we have had 5 have been truly outstanding ...  Read more

West Woodland has an outstanding, and unparalleled parent community that has kept us from leaving the school. The PTA supports numerous academic and extra curricular activities that play a significant role at West Woodland for all the students. That said, the principal, Marilyn Loveness, is weak in ...  Read more
