Welcome to Woodland Elementary School, home of the Woodland Braves!  We are proud of our students, staff, parents, and community who make our school successful.  School begins each day at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:10 p.m.  Woodland School is home to approximately 524 Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade students.

In addition to emphasizing the highest level of academic success, we offer various activities focusing on social, emotional, and physical skills:  21stCentury, SES tutoring, Intramural basketball, cheerleading and poms, Bridges, various dances and family events.

Woodland  provides its students with the very best education possible.  The staff constantly learns and adopts best practices in teaching methods and strategies to reach the needs of all  students.  Our focus will move towards a deeper, more interconnected content and skill building as the Common Core curriculum is implemented.  Differentiated instruction, guided reading, and technology are all used to help students achieve to their fullest potential.

Feel free to visit us and see why we are all proud to be Braves!
