  • I believe that the school is working toward greater things. I've been in some schools where the principal seem to not give a damn about the students (social-emotionally and intellectually). The principal at Woods Academy has shown me that her main concern is making sure that the sutdents get their education, and that includes helping with issues outside of the academics. The building is clean (it's hot in the summer though). The teachers seem to have good relationships with the students.
