WELCOME TO WOODLAND ACADEMY!
A Multi-Grade, Independent, Coeducational, Non-sectarian School
For Grades Pre-K through Eighth.
At Woodland, we use a multi-grade approach to education when appropriate. Multi-grade classrooms offer to 1) replace competitiveness with cooperation, 2) provide passive background learning, 3) provide a setting where a student’s learning in single subjects can be reinforced by moving that student between groups with very little attention being brought to their differences, 4) allow students to ‘move up’ with little or no disruption and 5) provide familiar and expectative relationships between teacher and students.
At Woodland, you will also discover...
|Confidence. Curiosity. A lifelong love of learning. These are the seeds of your child's bright future that must be sown with care. It takes personalized attention and the skill to recognize your child's unique talents. It requires consistent nurturing, so they will be continually challenged to reach their true potential. It means creating an environment that cultivates, encourages and expects the best of your children.|
|For more and more parents who care, Woodland Academy provides the answer.
"The small student-teacher ratio provides a great deal of
...and we love the kind and caring atmosphere of Woodland's leadership and teachers."
