    The school has been very supportive of all my children's endeavors. We appreciate the positive communication and the extra time that is spent with our children to help them succeed. The staff is caring proactive and have the best interest of my child's future at the forefront of all they do. Thank you W-G!

    My son just loves this school and so do my husband and I. He has been treated very well and when he needs extra help he is givin it. There has been some instances of mix ups between him and another student with the same first name. Our son loves math reading and spelling. He really likes his teachers and they all seem to have nothing but positive things to say about him. I have never witnessed the kids being told they can not talk in the halls just not to run. The parents seem to be involved as much as they can especially when we have to drive some distance for work. My son only has one more year at the elementary school and I'm very nervous about him going to the middle school because I've heard about problems there. Hopefully we'll be just as happy there have.

    My sons both attend W-G elementary and have grown academically and socially. It is a terrific safe and nurturing enviroment. The staff is OUTSTANDING! They take time to help those who need help and they take time to challenge those who need to be challenged. I have been in education for twenty-five years (not in the W-G district) and I am so glad my sons are being educated in the Woodward-Granger schools.

    My daughter has been going to wg for two years and loves it! the staff is wonderful and very well coordinated. She has always been encouraged to prosper and test her learning abilities to grow to the maximum. The citizenship program is a wonderful thing- teaching respect and caring; and acknowleding it as well!! the only thing i would improve on this school is getting more parents involved. There is a small group that seems to take an interest in their child(ren)'s futures. The possibilities and tools to succeed are available in this district. Awesome awesome awesome is all i have to say about our experience with wg elementary!

    My son has been in this school for 3+ years. Since K he has been treated very poorly by the Staff of W-G. They do not care about helping students that NEED help they only care about getting money!! They treat the students of this public school like little criminals. The children CAN NOT speak in the halls and have to walk and talk as they want them to. Kind of like being in an academy or boot camp. They are VERY strict and do not allow children to act their age or just be kids!
