My experience at H.D Woodson was wonderful. I was giving different opportunities throughout my 4 years . I develop to be a strong minded , intelligent , hardworking female. H.D Woodson showed me anything is possible , all you have to do is not give up. It also showed me how to be yourself and have confident in you. Being at H.D Woodson .. I realize that being independent isn’t so bad when you not interacting in negativity .
My last 4 years allowed me to dance , join clubs and be able to do summer internships that also give me the ability to move closer to my future . My High school has a big impact on me today because it prepared for the real world, adult life.

HD Woodson was a great school i attened all 4 years. the teachers, staff, even the lunch was good. The academics were always taken serious and any event that took place from basketball games, football games, or just meeting in the gym or lunchroom business was always handled. I graduated 2017 so im still closely familiar with how the basics of the school are it is a great place to meet long time friends while recieving a education.
Woodson was a source of pride for its high standards, exceptional academics and vocational classes, it profound music and art departments, and legendary sports dominance.
