About the Primary School

The Woodward Academy Primary School’s mission is to meet children where they are, academically, socially and emotionally, so that they can be happy, successful, and prepared for what is ahead. Everything we do is geared to the young child. By providing a nurturing, loving, and engaging learning environment, children are encouraged to explore, create, and collaborate. Implementing authentic learning and developing critical thinking skills through project-based learning is paramount to our success.

The Primary School's faculty is characterized by its desire to have students regard their classrooms as happy and exciting learning environments. Teachers at the Primary School enjoy working with and challenging a bright student body, and they are keenly aware of their responsibilities to communicate closely with parents who expect to be full and supportive partners in the student’s elementary education.
