    Woodward is a terrific school! I have been here since my 8th grade year and I have loved every minute of it. I love Woodward for many reasons. First, campus is beautiful and it is very nice to observe it when walking from class to class. Secondly, Woodward opens so many doors. We are taught at a higher pace which makes it easier to get not only get into college, but it makes the transition easier. Thirdly, I love the diversity of woodward. Being a student at Woodward, I have friends who are different than me, which is good. However, I have friends who are extremely different from me which I appreciate. Having friends who are very different from me allows me to understand people more and be accepting. That is a fundamental life school. While Woodward is amazing in almost every aspect, I do wish Woodward had more African-American teachers. I am a Junior in the upper-school and I have only had 2 African-American teachers.

    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.
