Part of having a successful student program with successful outcomes is the loving, caring, and nurturing environment we’ve created at Woodhouse, all while offering an educational experience that is as “typical” as any public school experience.
Every student takes part in activities that create and sustain a community feel. Each day starts with a morning get-together to socialize. This helps your child transition from home to school and eases them into the day ahead.
This is followed by a whole school discussion about the topic of the day. Anything from a breaking news story or questions involving society as a whole.
Three times a week, at the end of the school day, we have a social recreation period. Your child can play basketball, board games or simply hang with friends. During one of these rec periods, your child will also have the opportunity to join any of our school clubs.
The fourth afternoon of the week is reserved for our unique and progressive Community Seminar. This is where your child works on general skills such as communication, leadership, and teamwork that help in everyday life. Our Seminars are led by our school psychologist or social worker. All of our students sit in a circle. Any child can raise any schoolwide issues for discussion.
This is followed by appreciations where students and staff can recognize each other for acts of kindness and assistance that deserves public recognition. Lastly, our school psychologist or social worker leads the whole school in a team building or leadership activity.
