  • I know that Woodland is a great school but, if you look at the above statements from the students, it makes me think that the students are not learning too much when it comes to their spelling skills. I have 3 children that have graduated from there and I know that when they were students they were graded on their spelling. I believe that the school needs to get back to basics and start grading the students on their ability to spell because most of the kids these days talk text speech and they forget how to spell real words. As far as passing a student that has a GPA of less than 2...I am appalled, the reason, they need room for the incoming students. These students need to be prepared for high school and with that mentality they won't be.

  • Woodland middle school is a very nice school, the hole distrect is. Even though it is very big helpful hall monitors are allways near to help if you get lost. It is very organized and the teachers are very helpful and kind. I am going into my second year and i cant wait to start. There are a lot of after-school activitys, like spanish, ski club, cooking, drama, band and more. all of our explores are fun and we have a lot of them as well, art, family and consumer science, music, aplied practical arts(woodshop), spanish, tech lab, and gym or helth. WE have four bands, a poms team and a chear scuad. We also have a flags group. We have gym everyday and we switch exploritories every six weeks. I love woodland! =D!

  • Woodland Middle School is the best school, a school i could finally learn at other than the school i used to go to like W.J Murphy School which i hate the place now.The teachers at my school are cool and nice we do a lot of fun projects and experiements and stuff. We don't have to much homework at all but we do have big amount of projects.We have a great library in our school and it's great to use because since we have projects we could use our info for our projects there. We have nine gyms and 2 cafeterias and they are huge and speaking of huge our school is huge but if you ever get lost there is a school map in our adgenda or you could your way back with the signs nearby or you could ask a hall monitor. The classes in Woodland are awesome like spanish, music, art, and so on. We have really good teachers that want you to learn but you do not want to be on a teacher's bad side at all we have a good line of choices for lunch and snacks also drinks for snacks we have ice cream that are great for hot days and chips for just any old days and other snacks for any day. If your ever wondering if you would like Woodland Middle School then this would give you a great chance for a fun exciting education possible for you or your child at Woodland
