“One of the MANY things I love about Wood Acres is your constant reflection of what is working and what is not. What could be better than your fearless, take charge, do what the kids need to prepare them for life approach. I love that you strive for them to understand the WHY of what they are doing.”

“One of my favorite aspects of Wood Acres is the small community “feel”.  The Principal knows my child by name, and has a grasp on his strengths and weaknesses.  When I had concerns about his learning ability, she took 30 min out of her day to discuss it with me and was extremely helpful with feedback.  This school is amazing and an extremely good value.  I’d recommend this school to anyone who wants a higher standard of education with the best resources. “
