    This school was great. I'm in High School now at Glenbrook North and Wood Oaks definitely prepared me for it. Wood Oaks is "fun" educational and nobody falls asleep during class. I got good grades and this school totally helps. In 6th grade we learned about World Civilizaitions religions and the history of America catostrophic events and weather math prep or pre-algebra and more. In 7th grade we learned more focused American History biology pre-algebra or Algebra 1 and stuff. And in 8th grade we learned about current Global Studies chemistry and a bit a physics Algebra 1 or Geometry and more.
