    Woodland Elementary of District 196 in Eagan is the equivalent of getting a personalized private education included in your property taxes for free. Between the helpful attitude of the teachers and staff the overall teacher-to-student ratio and parent volunteers helping individual students and/or small groups on a daily basis Woodland is the model elementary school you want your students to attend

    I went to this elementary school (an undisclosed) number of years ago. Not only was my intellect nurtured in this school but it thrived. I've had a very successful academic career and I am adamant that NONE of it would have happened without the amazing instruction phenomenal support and unwavering encouragement I received when I was a student here. I look back at my time as a student here as some of the best years of my life and although time and circumstances have taken me to other states as the years have passed I know that if I decide to have children I will be returning to Eagan for the sole purpose of having them attend this institution. They helped save me as a child; I can't say enough wonderful things about this place; moreover the fact that the same teachers are here as when I was a student speaks to the dedication of the staff. Mr. Langhager was an amazing man and he built an amazing school. RIP. ~Ivory T.

    We are new to the district and after extensive research moved here specifically for the schools. I'm thrilled with the level of education attention to student and parent needs and the quality of teaching staff. This is a gem of a school much like a private school within the public school system. The principal is new but hard working smart and well respected by students and staff. This is a marvelous school.

    This school was the best Elementary school in the district until the original principal retired. Unfortunately the students are now expected to act like miniature grown-ups and there is no attempt to encourage them to be creative successful individuals. Parent involvement has declined signficantly and the sense of school pride is gone. Find another school that will foster your child's spirit and let them be the best they can be.

    Excellent Princial who has been with the school since it was built. Excellent Parent involvement! Good teachers. As we all know a teacher will relate to every student differently so your mileage will vary. Excellent school design with core being a library all classrooms open towards the middle. No classes will get out of control. A+

    Woodland is a great school were the students will receive personal attention and the teachers and staff will do their part to know each child personally. As a former student it prepared me the best I could ask for heading in to Middle School. Woodland is like the private school within the public schools. It is in a league of it's own.
