Woodlawn Leadership Academy Reviews

My name is Johnesha Wilson and I have recently graduated from Woodlawn Leadership Academy. Throughout my attendance at Woodlawn from junior high to a proud alumna, I can say my experience was exciting. The students and the teachers was very positive and compassionate. I was a faithful member of the Lady Knights basketball team, but I also was a member of the softball and track team. The faculty and coaches always made sure everything was okay with me and other students. The football and basketball games are the best thing about Woodlawn. There is a great support system from the alumni, faculty and students. On the other hand the class room environment is great and the teachers make sure you are understanding everything so you will not get left behind. However, the only thing that need a change at Woodlawn is their lunch. The lunch is horrible and some time there isn't enough food. Other than the lunch I can say Woodlawn is a great and is a great place to learn and meet others.

My experience at Woodlawn was pretty decent. The teachers were okay, the workload compared to other schools was really light.
Woodlawn is okay school I feel that the students should be able to have a voice more, they shouldn’t lie to us, and take away stuff just because of few bad students.
