|# of Students:
|Two aspects that make our school a special place:
||Woodland Hills Academy is a school that strives to empower students to become agents of change in their community.
Our students are challenged by curriculum that enables all students to achieve at a high level of success and become productive members of society.
Offering a college ready program campus wide and additional support through AVID, Woodland Hills Academy offers courses aligned to the A-G requirements with a robust arts program. We are very proud to have AVID and “School for Advanced Studies” programs intertwined with our other robust educational platforms.
Our campus culture, course, and extracurricular activities align with the demands of high school and college to ensure that all students have the opportunity, experience, and information necessary to go to college.
|How will this cash grant directly benefit the students at your school?
||Our school needs books. Novels and engaging informational texts to help us as we transition towards the Common Core State Standards. Our teachers need to update their classroom libraries to support our literacy goals. The Common Core State Standards remind us that ALL teachers are teachers of language and that we need to diversify the texts we provide our scholars.
|What are the biggest challenges in running your school, and how will you overcome them?
||One of the biggest challenges facing our school is that we don't have funds available to continue offering some of our programs. The budget cuts have led to increased class sizes and counselor to student ratios. We will overcome these challenges by continuing to work with the community, as well as seeking donations and partnerships when possible.
