Woodlawn Magnet High School is rich in history and strives toward academic excellence. We take pride in our faculty,
staff, and students. We believe that as a cohesive family, we are able to make great strides.
For more than fifty years, students have found challenging and enriching educational experiences which enable
them to become confident and lifelong learners. In addition, each classroom at Woodlawn High School is equipped
with integrated computer systems, which links our students to the global information network. A moderate student
to teacher ratio and a spacious campus offers students the opportunity to experience, investigate, and be truly engaged in
learning. A curricular framework exists to allow academic areas to be woven together in a meaningful manner. Enrichment activities
compliment the academic picture by closely integrating fine arts, physical activities, and social skills development. Every
aspect of our curriculum is designed to capitalize on each student’s interests and strengths.
We offer our parents and students a dedicated and gifted staff of enthusiastic, energetic professionals who focus on the
needs of individual students in a well-planned and organized setting. Our motto, "It takes a village", reflects the heart
of our school and our desire to ensure that each child is allowed to reach his or her maximum potential. With our process
of continuous improvement, changes always come. We will continue to maintain the focus on our student friendly traditions
and ensure a quality education for all Woodlawn Colonels.
