Woodbury Central High School Ratings & Reviews
Three of my children graduated from Woodbury Central and did it beautifully in college. They were not cheerleaders or jocks. However, we did in still into them a need to study, and to be responsible for their own behaviors and lives. They now I have very solid jobs thanks to the background that they received at the high school level. Woodbury Central did very well by them...they were especially well prepared in Reading and composition.
I have had four kids graduate from Woodbury Central and I feel most of the teachers are wonderful educators and have done an amazing job preparing the kids from elementary through High School for college. They have worked WITH us on any problems we might have had, and we worked at home to also help our kids stay prepared for college. It should not be the schools full responsibility to accomplish this task as most of the responsibility rests on the students themselves. They are young adults and old enough to know to study if they themselves want to succeed. The present administration has done a great job replacing the teachers that were not fulfilling WC's high expectations. My kids did not experience bullying however, one son told me he stepped up and stopped a situation in the locker room. I think the school does a good job staying on top of problems, the teachers really care about the students and the kids know what is right or wrong, and step up to the situation. I am proud to be a former Wildcat parent.
Woodbury Central is a great school. People just don't understand how tight our community is. Since we have consolidated with Kingsley for several classes and sports our community has grown even larger. The issue about the people in sports getting special treatment is completely false. Every teacher gives you the respect and attention you give them. It is just a matter of attitude.
My husband and I moved out of Sergeant Bluff, IA to Moville so our kids could be in a smaller school. Big schools worried me. We are satisfied with the progress our kids have achieved. I have had a few issues and went directly to the principal and staff who worked with me to help resolve the problems quickly. Every small school has the 'in' crowd and 'jocks' but it is part of growing up. Kids will become adults and have these same issues at college and work. We Love WC!
I am a parent and have had 2 children graduate from this school and currently have one attending. I can definitely state that this school is NOT passive in terms of bullying. It takes place and is pretty much ignored. Faculty love to state how they have an excellent anti-bullying policy in place however it is never utilized. A child could walk up to another and call them names, hit them etc and if the child retaliates and is caught, the child who was initially bullied gets into trouble. They never bother to take the time to get to the bottom of a situation and handle it. Personal business is shared with community members by staff without any concern for privacy. There is parental involvement within the school. However, this school is also very "cliquish". As someone stated already, it lets everyone know that jocks and cheerleaders are of first priority.
