My daughter is a current student at Woodmont and I would not recommend any one choosing this school for their children. The staff shows no concern for the students. When I talked with the school counsoler because I feel my child is in danger of dropping out she seemed unconserned . Did not offer any help or suggestions on how we could work together to keep her in school. The dress code goes uninforced. Boys w/ their pants belted around their knees and girls hanging out of their clothes. During lunch the kids are separated into lines based on full pay/free or reduced. This makes it easier for the lower income children to be identified and picked on. The list goes on and on of complaints I have. Fortunately we will soon be moving and I will no longer have to send my kids to ANY Greenville County school.

The building is beautiful and there are a handful of really great teachers. Most teachers live in the area and show partiality. If you are in business and do not have time to "volunteer" then your child will be pushed aside. Also watch out for sports teams. They haven't figured out that sports bring in money. How to improve this school... 1- get administration that cares about the children and puts them first not politics. 2-Place cameras in all classrooms to stop any problems on either the students or teachers. 3-Have a board made up of faculty parents and students to hire teachers. (Not the PTA) 4- Allow parents and teachers to belong to only one board at a time. 5-Have actual counselors at the school with open door policy for students problems. Currently some counselors require an appointment to meet with them.6- Release teachers from duty instead of giving them numerous times to get it right.
This school is decent it's ok for the most part my first day was the worst I missed 3 class periods waiting to get my schedule because the guidance department was so unorganized so 3 hours later I finally got it and then I had trouble finding my classes and barely had any help getting to them . I Pefer my old school Long Reach High School atleast their they sent a senior to guide me to my classes on my first day. So all in all I'm not really liking this school
I am currently a student and i love this place to death. I fit in perfectly and the fine arts department is absolutely amazing. I wouldn't leave for the world.
this school would rather have an automated answering machine call the parents to inform them that their student did not go to class. the school administration would rather not deal with a one on one conversation with a parent to inform them of a students behavior because it is in fact the schools faculty that condones it!!!! these kids are allowed to leave the school grounds at any given time of the day.no questions asked. I feel as a parent that i need to monitor the parking lot after i drop my son off just to make sure he doesnt leave. i hold my child responsible for his actions but i feel as though the school takes no measures in the safety of the students when they can just walk out whenever they please!!!! it is their responsibility to make sure these kids are in class.
Woodmont! i love this school! It's a great school. I'm not saying it just because. it really is. Academics are actually pretty great! Especially if your an incoming freshman since you have 4 year long classes it's easier. BEST SCHOOL EVER! Were pretty big on school spirit. The buildings new discipline is something to not complain about and teachers here are great. Although there is some not very nice teachers but all schools have that so get over it. Raising money is pretty easy here. Lunch is great!! Smoothies frappuchinos & a bunch of other stuff. Administrators are straight up about the rules so its a great way to discipline. OVER ALL GREAT SCHOOL! Don't talk bad about this school if you not attending! ) I think this schools actually very enjoyable. Plus most if not all materials are updated and the staff is wondeful! Library is HUGE!!!! Theres a never ending about of resources books and computers! SO that really helps! IF I WAS A PARENT I WOULD SEND MY KID HERE. ) hope this review helped!
I am a new teacher this year at Woodmont and was very pleased to discover that this is a wonderful school! I have been in other schools in Greenville county both as a teacher and a parent and Woodmont rates right up with the best! The students are the same as anywhere else although maybe a little friendlier and nicer to the teachers. Academically the top classes are very rigourous and the CP classes are challenging as well. Unlike other schools the administration here seems to sincerely care about the students and take extra measures to work with those who are seriously in danger of failing or dropping out. This is NOT the old Woodmont but a much improved version. I love it here!!
This might be a great school if you look at the top 20% of the students but the other 80% is the same old Woodmont just in a pretty new building. We cannot get return calls from the principal to follow up after meeting on a particular issue that multiple parents have complained about (student teacher doesn't speak English). We are not happy with the school the administration and believe that there is too much freedom (parking lot) at this school. We also do not receive calls regarding absences etc..... We received the first one this week; and updated our phone numbers with them several months ago.
Let's be honest. You can't just give a school 5 stars because you want it to be the best. This is an average school with little school spirit. The pep rallys are pathetic everytime a student is late to class a parent is annoyed by a phone call and the SGA runs everything giving no individual student input. However academic success is pretty high not considering the CPS classes. So there's an honest review from a student.
I am a former student of Woodmont High School. Many people have often looked down on our school. Despite the reasoning I would not have went to any other high school. Woodmont's falculty and staff are the best around. They really care about the students; unlike most high schools. Activities are always happening at Woodmont. Activities are planned by staff and even students. There is plenty of student involvement at this school which I think plays an important role in promoting learning. The students at Woodmont seem to all get along better than most people in those age groups. Yes there are cliques just as you would find at any other school. Despite this however the students get along quite well. People of all backgrounds 'hang out' together. Woodmont is a very diverse school and because of this you would think there would be many problems. Woodmont makes its diversity work.
I am a student at Woodmont High School. I think that all of the academics and sports teams are a good thing for us as students. This year they are not taking any slacking off or horseplay. I think that because of that the students are more aware of how important their education is. Also the sports teams are a good thing because they tell you that you have to have good grades in all of your classes to stay on the team. So if you are a student and you want to play bad enough you will keep your grades up. Also all of the clubs and teams keep us busy. Therefore we won't have time to get into trouble and we will stay focused on our education and to better our reputation.
I attended Woodmont. Although I loved everything that Woodmont had to offer I would have to say that the faculty and staff is the best that this state has to offer.
Woodmont is a great school. We may have our low points just like every other scholl but something good is happening to woodmont. I believe that woodmont will grow into a facinating learning environment. If you are interested in coming to woodmont plaese stop by; you want regret it!
I unlike many other thing that Woodmont High School is a great school of learning. I attend Woodmont as well as my children.
