Our school year is certainly off to an excellent start as we welcome 19 new families and 26 mission-appropriate students to our current Woodland family that is now 92 families and 127 students strong! This is a testament to our wonderful faculty and staff, our strong curriculum and our caring Woodland community, all of which help to bring the best in education to your children.
