    My child has had a wonderful experience at Woodland High School. The teachers challange the students. The teachers and the staff are supportive and communicate just enough to keep me in the loop withough inundating me. The marching band symphonic band and colorguard and arts programs are second to none. They are well organized and reasonably priced compared to neighboring schools. The administrators are engaged and work tirelessly for our children.

    My school is exceptional with a wonderful staff and students who want to gain as much knowledge as they can from their teachers . Woodland is open to parental involvement and they support not only the community but every student. The teachers and administrations though considered "hard" by some students are only preparing them for the world of higher learning and the workforce. I applaud all of those at Woodland High in Stockbridge for keeping the educating of students first !

    Woodland High is a great school with a positive bright environment. Like most schools Woodland does have some bad teachers and some awful Counselors but the the English department Science Mathematics and other connection and core classes are very good. The school is new and trying to establish a reputation but overall Woodland High is not a bad school to send your children to learn. With a little cooperation from parents however I am sure counselors and even some teachers could be replaced. Mr. Cook the principal cares a lot for the students and the building as a whole and tries his best to keep everyone happy as well as make WHS a safe learning environment. I encourage anyone moving to Henry CO to move close to Union Grove or Woodland districts. WHS encourage students to excel in all areas possible as well as be responsible and well-behaved.

    i can not believe some people are saying that this school has does not care. They care so much. I transfered from a horrible school and came here for my senior year. It was great. I was not bullied at all and when my parents need to talk to someone they went up to the school. I made better grades because the teachers try and help you but first you hvae to help yourself. Yes we got to use our cell phone but not in class we got to use our ipod and mp3 players only if the teachers said we could. Students did get in trouble if they were wearing something to revealing. Guys were told they must not sag tier pants and got in trouble for it if they did. I do not see how you can say things about this school. Its a wonderfull school I love it!!

    I totally disagree with some of the reviews claiming that our school has a bad environment and that the principal allows us to do whatever we please. This is not the case at our school. Our administration staff provides great leadership and they are one of the best if not the best administration in the county. A dress code is enforced at the school as I have seen people get in trouble for certain clothing items. Our school has an excellent environment for students to receive a good education. We have many qualified teachers. I have not experienced any bullying or drugs at my school and I am there all the time. Overall Woodland High School is one of the best schools in the county and I am glad to know that I will be graduating from such a wonderful school.

    Excellent school and administration. It has it's problems like any other school but I would recommend this school to any parent. Parents need to get more involved if they feel a change is needed. Thanks

    I found this school over crowed and teachers unwilling to help parents or students. Students dress improper for school and no dress code is inforced. Drugs and bullying is also at this school. Would not tell anyone to put their student there. Principal allows students to do as they please. New leadership and guidelines would help this school. I give this school a F. For failing students and parents.

    As a new graduate of Woodland High School I appreciate the excitement and enthusiasm of parents-but there are very few activities that our senior class (or school) participated in. The staff seemed determined to keep us stifled which made my last year extremely boring and monotonous.

    Woodland High School is by far the best in Henry County. If you have a child in public school in Henry County this is the one to be at. This is my 3rd experience with High Schools in Henry County and so far I have no complaints. Some teachers are a little slow to respond to my inquiries but that could be said about any school; public or otherwise.

    Woodland 's classrooms are to large this year.They have tried to cut size down by adding some new classrooms.There is safety issues and lack of support to parents who wish to be involved with their students and the school.The staff is rude 80% office 90% of the time.Teachers lack contact with parents. Dress or hair codes it's anything goes.Girls showing to much on top and middle.Guys anything goes. A change in principal might help but school needs lot's of improvements. No hair codes.Looks like school does not care what it's students look like.

    This School is amazing. I just finished my sophmore year last year and it was fabulous. The teachers were emaculate. They knew what they were doing and the class sizes were extremely small. As a student of a first year school I was glad i got the opportunity to start the school off right!!
