Woods Charter School Reviews

Woods is a very special place, whether you are a parent, a student or a teacher. I have been going to Woods since kindergarten and am currently a junior. I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything in the world. Not only does this school provide challenging academics, but it has a huge support system for every student. The word 'community' is heard in every assembly, statement, and conversation about Woods... but it's not overstated! The beautiful sense of community that woods created from being so small and caring is truly what separates it from other schools. There are definitely some issues with Woods, as there is with every school, such as instances of nepotism, low funding and limited facilities. (The track team has to run on a dirt field, but we make it work!) However, this school takes an active role in addressing these issues and listening to students input. I feel very prepared for college, have learned a lot here and would definitely recommend it!

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.
Of the ten schools I've attended, I can say without a doubt that Woods Charter School is the best of these. The most valuable thing about Woods is its sense of community. Of course, this comes naturally with its small student population and close-knit faculty. There is an opportunity for every student to intimately connect with their teachers and the staff, making everyone feel included and a functional part of the school's ecosystem. It's obvious the teachers care both for their students but for the courses they teach. The academics at Woods are a remarkable feat, giving every student an opportunity to engage in their subjects in a way that they are passionate about. The biggest weak point at Woods is the lack of funding. For being a small school, Woods sees a barely sufficient level of funding, as planned activities often have to be scrapped due to lack of funds. However, the administration does the best it can, and it helps that the strong community lends its support.
