    I can only comment on the Osprey team which is the advanced placement class. They all are great at involving the children and teaching above the standard core classes. The admin and parent involvement is lacking. I never receive notices or picture dates nothing posted on website or very infrequent calls about school activities. A great drop off from the elementary level of involvement. Wish they would still do group activities and bring the classmates closer together to support school and teachers.

    The teachers at Woodland are dedicated to teaching. They work with parents and answer e-mails within a reasonable amount of time. They post grades into Crosspointe mostly daily and keep it updated. Mr. Wing is the best band teacher ever! He really cares for his students and wants them all to succeed! Woodland Middle is a great school! Thank you!

The teachers are very involved with all the students learning and an offer a wide variety of before school acttivites. Theres math lab math counts plethra of sports and lots of fun involved in our everyday learning. Best School Ever!!!!

    I have had two students go thru Woodland Middle School 7-8 grades after one year at Heron Creek. The teachers have been outstanding but no one has assisted more in their academic successes than James Kelly who has the students' best interests in mind at all times. We have had our challenges with certain teachers at times but in the end the right decisions were made with the student as the priority. If you are a parent who stays in touch you will enjoy and appreciate your child's experience at Woodland Middle.

    I love this school! I transferred here last year and i made so many friends. 8th grade teachers are amazing and i actually like school here better then the weekends (which is alot to say considering i used to yearn for weekends) This is an amazing school and i wish i could be here forever. the only complaint i have is the rules on dress code are a bit strict but its for safety so i can manage.
