    Our family has been apart of the Woodlawn for 6 years. T?he experience is positive for all 3 of our children. When looking at a private school, you expect high academics, well-appointed facilities, bright peers, and top-notch teachers. W delivers on all of this. My children have become problem solvers, critical thinkers, global, and are immersed in a diverse community. W was built on core values educating the whole child, academically, emotionally and physically.

    The curriculum teaches all types of learners effectively. It isproject-based; challenging the youngest of minds, developing lifelong learners. Children learn in whole and small groups, and receive individual atten. The teachers are exceptional. Teaching beyond the classroom.
    Leadership has found a balance in being progressive- building on an 18-year tradition of excellence. There has been changes, but all have been positive and have not affected our educational experience.
    Woodlawn is FAMILY.

    We were impressed by Woodlawn when we signed on initially. Kindergarten and first grade went very well. Our child was happy, caught up and even passed some of her classmates. The "project sharing" experiment was a total success for us during that period. Then, by second grade the project sharing ended and "output" become the goal. What was a very happy, "life-long learner" child became a morose and upset kid with "tummy aches". There is supposedly a psychological counselor available but....

    Be sure you're prepared for your child to be fitted into a box. If your kid is creative, sincerely wants to learn for learning's sake, or gifted, be prepared to explain over and over why "output" takes precedence over interest.

    Kudos to Ms. Denham the science teacher and Ms. Hoskins, both bright spots who seem to understand a bigger picture.
    As a new lower school parent at Woodlawn School, I was so impressed by the personal welcome we received from administration, teachers, and parents alike. Woodlawn fosters an openness and inclusivity that is predominantly a result of sustained investment in creating a school culture that promotes respect, service, growth mindset, and global awareness. Our introverted child is thriving academically, socially, and athletically at Woodlawn and loves going to school!
