Welcome from Admission Office

Welcome to Woodland!

We are delighted you are considering a Woodland education for your child and look forward to partnering with you through the admission process. Educating students from preschool through eighth grade, Woodland is a school for the whole family as children grow and develop throughout their earliest educational experiences. While our preschool students explore their natural curiosity in a hands-on early childhood environment, our kindergarten through fourth grade students develop a love for learning through small class sizes and nurturing teachers. During middle school, our fifth through eighth grade students are supported through their adolescent years as they learn critical tools of self-advocacy, responsibility, and strength of voice. 

Woodland is a small school with a big heart. Families choose Woodland because they feel connected to our core values of curiosity, resilience, integrity, equity, respect, and stewardship, which are reflected in our curriculum, classrooms, and our grounded and inclusive community.

The best way for you to get to know us is through our virtual admission experiences offered throughout the admission season. I encourage you to explore our website further, including discovering for yourself the so many reasons to love Woodland!

I look forward to connecting with you and partnering with your family throughout your admission journey.
