2/27/2011otherWill C. Wood has a pretty bad reputation, but it's definitely not as bad as people make it seem to be. Most of the teachers there do a great job and they're always there to help you. Like many schools in the district, there have been budget cuts but WCW still manages to offer many afterschool sports and activites. They also focus heavily on reading. They have a large selection of novels in their library and many teachers promote reading in their classroom by offering free reading time or keeping a small selection of books in their classroom. Not only that, they also hold BBQ's and parties throughout the year to encourage reading and to motivate students to do better in school. They also have end-of-the-year fieldtrips to Six Flags. Anyone can go -- they just need to read 1 million words! (And it's a whole lot easier than it sounds.)
2/1/2010studentAs an 8th Grader at Wood, I have to say that my last two years (well, almost) spent here has been great. It's an average school that has it's share of pros and cons, but there's more pros than cons, if you ask me. Pros: On-campus police officer, phone calls home the very day a student is absent, great staff, fun afterschool activities, and much more. Most of the teachers here are great. Some have bad reps for being 'mean', but they do a great job at what they're doing. Each teacher has their own unique way of teaching. Mr. Krier, for example, doesn't believe in homework. Instead, he focuses on students to use their brain, and actually think. He can be strict, but he can joke around sometimes. People were always saying it was a bad school, but it wasn't. It was a good school, ANDiGotToMakeALotOfMemoriesHere. (:

1/29/2007studentWell this school is doing a lot better. They are adding a lot more activities. They just had an intramural sport going on a while back. I was in it, and I had a lot of fun. So yes this is a good school.
1/24/2006parentThere is not much extrcurricular activites at this school nor there is a adequate picking up or drop-off point at this school for children.
