    Woodley is an ok school the Staff sometimes greet you and sometimes they don't. I do think they could do better on the car rides making sure the kids know the person whose picking them up in car lines and unlike the other Elementary School the Staff hear only stay outside until 8am when at the other school Staff stays out until 8 10 when the tardy bell rings. I have went to pick my child up at 3 23 and the Staff would already be on their way to office with the kids instead of waiting to 3 30 to leave car ride duty as the other schools. I also will say that this school is not as organized as THAMES but is better than other elementary schools in the Forrest County area. I do like my child's teacher and I think she has good teaching skills and was told she was transferred from a better school in the area.

    Woodley has terrific teachers that know how to help students learn. Their high expectations and caring help students to become more knowledgeable about the world around them.

    My kids attend this school and they stay on the honor role. The teachers and staff also know my kids by name so that shows me that there's personal contact within the schoolhouse.

    Its a great school the teachers are very concerned about their students and help in many ways. And it needs all the support monetary plus wise it can get. Its an older school.

    This has got to the world's worst school. You can call and leave a message - all of the time. You never get a person to speak to. Oh and them message isn't audible (if they even know what that word means). Know wonder the kids don't know how to speak the english language. My favorite is that they also have their fax number listed as a regular phone number. My kid will not be attending next year. I would rather pay a private school than depend on these people to do anything.
