I loved it! It’s pretty diverse and all the kids there aren’t your typical “private school kids.” There are plenty of clubs and sports, so really anyone can find one that they are passionate about. There are also many student organizations that focus on issues that they are passionate about, which, in my opinion, is great for kids who want their voice to be heard or want to make a difference. Also, the way they teach you to write will really go a long way in college and immediately impress your professors.

I loved my experience at Woodward! The campus is amazing with cutting-edge technology in every classroom. It feels like a college campus. Safety and diversity were always emphasized. As a college-prep school, the courses are advanced and prepare you for your continued education. The teachers truly care about the students and make the lessons interesting. Everyone in my graduating class got into amazing universities. I wouldn’t trade my time at Woodward for anything.
Great school. My son excelled at Woodward, had wonderful teachers, was VERY prepared for college, and was involved in a wide range of activities. The high school facilities are amazing! Most importantly, this is a very diverse school that reflects all that is wonderful about the city of Atlanta.
