Words from Our Community
"It feels so family oriented and that's what I love. It's not just teachers that come to teach kids, but it's mothers and fathers that come to teach their kids, who they call their kids away from home."
"We try to build a positive culture and provide the students with a lot of incentives where they will be motivated to learn, motivated to give us the desired behavior that we're looking for."
"The common denominator is the child. We care about the child. The family cares about the child. So we sit down, we develop a gameplan. We, often times, visit the gameplan because our goal is for them to be successful."
"What I like about our school is that our teachers are very patient and understanding. If you need anything or you need help, as far as your work, they're always there to help you."
Founded in 2015, Wooddale Middle School has served its local community by providing student-centered learning environment focused on preparing its youth for College, Leadership and Life.
