  • this is the worst school ever!!!! I transferred my daughter out after going there for a year. The school is under funded and the teachers and principal are not interested in the well being of the students. Very old and ragedy building. I would not ever reccomend anyones child to go here. Run the other way parents

  • I am a parent of a former student at Woodlawn. I found it to be a very poor school. There are no books for the students, some of the staff are uncaring and unprofessional. One teacher refused to meet with me for a parent teacher conference because she said she did not have time to meet with parents. THe principal is totally unaware of whats going on in the school and is more concerned with statistics than student welfare.
