    "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!"

    "Wood Acres has the potential to be a fantastic school - the campus is beautiful, the Spanish program is great, the classrooms are calm and well kept and the class sizes are small... it falls very short of meeting it's potential. The leadership is weak, the school lacks direction and has no connection to the community. The teaching staff are disconnected between grades and within grades, operating as individuals and not a cohesive team. The curriculum and teaching is unimaginative and lacks creativity - desk bound and workbook based. If you are looking for hand-on experiential learning, this is not the school. They are unwilling to work with different learning styles and do not encourage parental involvement. The playground is frequently closed if it is a little too wet, and recess is indoors if it's a little too cold. There are inconsistencies on which classes in a grade make use of the science lab or library. The level of homework, especially for the younger grades, is extreme and, for the most part, adds little value to the day-to-day curriculum. Wood Acres has great potential but in reality offers little more than a good public school, other than campus and class size."

    "My children have been at Wood Acres since Kindergarten and we have been at the school for 6 years. This is our last year. The teachers are wonderful. We just cannot continue to send our children to and hand over our money to a dying school. Over the last few years the administration has become non-responsive and relies on the teachers to do everything with no support, which has made the turnover quite high in the last few years (teachers even leave in the middle of the year). The teachers never complain about the lack of support but when any issues come up, the leadership just tells you what you want to hear and then never follows through. It is really disappointing. The school had such a great reputation and shows well, but the leadership just seems to hold disdain for the parents and really doesn't want them on campus unless it is to pay or drop off/pick up the kids. We were hoping for a more family-like school and each year that never materialized. The Spanish program is nice, and those teachers are really great but even that is not enough to keep us. So sad."

    "Absolutely beautiful campus! What I love about Wood Acres is how it feels like you're part of a family. The teachers, staff, kids and parents all seem happy to be there and love to learn! Class sizes are small, typically under 14 per class. I highly recommend coming to the Woods!"
