    Woodland Elementary truly is a wonderful school! You know there is something special there when your child is excited and happy to get on the school bus every morning! From the teachers support staff and the incredibly involved principal very one is at the top of their game and they make learning fun! We couldn't be happier with the education our children are receiving at Woodland!

    Woodland Elementary is absolutely fantastic. My child is hearing impaired and the program through Woodland is amazing. The principal is a wonderful person who is clearly dedicated to making Woodland a top notch school. My son is attending now as a kindergartener and I am having the same wonderful experience I had with my daughter.

    Woodland is a wonderful school. The principal is a terrific leader and the teachers/staff are actively engaged. There is very strong support from parents through the Home School Association. Woodland is a gem and we could not be happier to have our child in this school.
