Woods Charter School Reviews
I liked the small size because I thought that it meant more assistance from teachers as needed. Some teachers care and some don't. Some teachers just might tell their class that they have a life other than school, so their assignments will get graded when she's ready (if she can find them!)! Administration doesn't really seem to care much about issues brought to them about teachers. Maybe this is because they are their friends. This school has very little diversity and is very open to much of anything - unless from a minority. That's my experience. Hopefully the bar will be raised for teacher expectations and issues with students will be handled more fairly - for all people groups.
Woods Charter School is a very small school, with an average of 40 students per grade. This small learning environment makes it easy for students to interact with teachers and have their voices heard in the classroom. Students connect with each other well, and there is a very communal, friendly environment in every classroom. However, with a small school there is a limited number of classes available to students who want to explore majors and careers, and the small size also limits the number of sports. Even with these restrictions, Woods offers many AP courses and has many clubs and after school activities for students to become involved in.
Woods Charter School is a very academically rigorous school. It requires a lot of dedication to homework and studying. However, it definitely pays off and in the end, prepares you for college level work. In terms of extracurricular activities, the academically focused activities are very successful and positive. Athletics and other activities are not as strong or well supported by the school community. In general, however, the sense of community is very strong and you end up graduating with a class where you know everyone.
