    "This is our first year and we have a pre-K and 4th grader attending the school. The teachers are engaging and my previously "bored" 4th grader, has not once woke up begging not to go to school this year. People have made comments about the teachers not being welcoming but I must be missing this. As apposed to the previous public school where I was never allowed in the classroom I have always just walked right in at Wood Acres. When calling I am always answered by a friendly voice and my questions answered promptly. All 5 teachers email me every week with updates about what my children are learning and what they will be doing next week. Also, if there is a concern with with anything the teachers call and email me immediately. We chose WA because we wanted our children to enjoy school, get a solid education, have the teachers notice them and have a true interest in their education. So far this year all of these things have happened. A previous post mentioned no after school activities which they do have, plenty. Another post offered no tutoring? the teachers offer "free" tutoring 3 days a week. Great school!"

    "We just finished the 8th grade after being there since Pre-K and cannot say enough GREAT THINGS about it! Wood Acres is an International Spanish Academy which allows your child to converse with ease IN SPAIN during their 8th grade trip there. Their Spanish program there is second to none. My child will leave 8th grade ready for Spanish III in high school as a freshman! I read in another post about not being hands on...can you then explain how there has never ever been a science textbook??? It is 100% hands on! The teaching is FULL of imagination! Spanish Role plays, power point presentations put on by students, outdoor science fair, Greek/Roman day, the list goes on and on. Community service you ask? Girls clothing drive, Must food drives, MLK work day, and more. Might I add, ALL of these functions are put into action by the kids. They do the planning and advertising, they work the drives/functions and clean up after while learning organization and leadership skills. Parents are welcomed AND encouraged to be at the school. We are heartbroken it was time to leave as we will never find another Mrs. Thigpen, I am afraid. My child left WA happy, healthy, loved and very well educated."

    "Our child started at Wood Acres in PreK and is a raising third grader. Wood Acres has set the course for my daughters entire education by making learning fun. The teachers have high and reasonable expectations and care about teaching an accelerated curriculum as opposed to just learning for the test. The student ratios are low compared to other schools that have 25 plus students per classroom allowing more one on one availability. The administration encourages parent involvement has an open door policy and strives to instill the natural love of learning."

    "Wood Acres is a fantastic school and it is NOT dying! In fact, it is growing by leaps and bounds. Not only is my daughter thrilled to go to school every morning, but her teachers are thrilled to teach her every day! As for parent involvement, I have been a room parent, a mystery reader, helped with the Science Carnival, helped out with Constitution Day, helped out with Family Picnics, helped out with Field Day and I have helped out in the classroom many times! We have been at Wood Acres for over 3 years now and it is like a second home to our family. We are extremely happy, our daughter is learning so much every day and we are here to stay!"
