Woodward Academy is a great and unique school! If I could do it all over again, I would have attended here since pre-k. The teachers provide interesting activities to help us learn and they truly care about their students. The campus is spread out like a small college, and that makes it very unique. There are so many clubs to participate in that you will definitely make friends. I think Woodward is preparing me for college very well, and I'm only in middle school! The school is located in College park, which I know some people may be concerned about because of the area's reputation, but it's very safe. There is campus patrol constantly circling around the school, so no one who doesn't attend or have a kid who attends Woodward would dare to even step a foot on campus. Overall, Woodward Academy is a great school and I definitely recommend it!
Review Woodward Academy
Undoubtedly, best Private Prep School in Atlanta...
Founded in 1900. Established . Excellent teachers who strive for nothing short of excellence from their students.
Rigorous academic program with extremely high standards but your child will be so prepared, well- mannered and perhaps , more importantly, well- rounded and discerning when he/she enters College.
Top notch teachers and Headmaster Dr. Gully run an amazing school.
The Campus is beautiful , safe and v. well maintained. The extremely high standards expected of Woodward students spills over into all aspects of this Academy.
You will observe this yourself when you tour the school.

Impressive parental involvement.
Superb school. My children have had an amazing experience there.
Best decision and investment as parents that we have made on our children's behalf.
The school's security force is made up of former police and military personnel who work hand in hand with the College Park Police Department to ensure the safety of the students and families while on campus and those who live in the immediate vicinity of the campus. Bullying does exist, but not on a large level. Cliques are extremely prevalent here both among the girls and the boys with the girls (especially those from fourth grade forward) being the most vicious: pulling in a newcomer, figuring them out, then dumping them for not being a long term member of the school!

Health wise, they have an excellent health care staff on campus from first thing in the morning till the last student, especially the athletes, leave campus. However, when the students take trips, there should be at least one medical professional as chaperone and there needs to be more chaperones for the number of students. On one trip, a parent/doctor accompanied and was called to duty several times during the trip. On another trip, there were only three teachers, an intern and one parent chaperone for 23 students. A student had to go to the hospital and was accompanied by the trip leader while there was another student and teacher/chaperone who developed bad colds. The remaining two teachers wanted to take the sick student back to the hotel and leave the parent with the Intern in a city which neither of us had been to prior. Instead, the parent insisted on taking the sick student and two other students back to the hotel via a taxi rather than via the public transit system (after midnight!) so that more adult supervision was available for the remaining 20 students. This year (2016) the trip was repeated and the teacher/leader of the trip left to return to Atlanta to attend the funeral of a parent of a recent graduate leaving the 20 participants in the care of three chaperones. Poor choices on the part of the administration when away from campus.
