  •  Highlights


    The following school highlights are just a few of the things that make Woodland Middle School an amazing place to learn and grow! These four items should allow you to see the rigorous learning, diverse experiences, and supportive culture that exists in our school. In Henry County Schools, we believe in giving every student a high quality, world-class education and we believe these highlights display our passion and commitment to do just that.



    WMS picStudent Outcomes
    Woodland Middle School has had a strong history of excellence within the community since the school’s opening in 2007. At that time, the school’s mission was to “lead the pack in student learning and achievement.” Woodland Middle School has proudly achieved its original mission. In 2019, Woodland Middle School’s 16.2-point overall CCRPI increase earned the school a tie for the top score of 80.0 for middle schools in the district. Former Woodland Middle Principal Dr. Joycelyn Jackson shared that the school’s increase was the result of pulling together to support students with a clear focus on teaching and learning. “We were able to empower our teachers through professional development opportunities from our district. We used student assessment data from common assessments to measure against our student performance targets to keep track of all of our student’s performance by subgroup. Additionally, we were intentional in allowing students to have ownership in the learning process by creating opportunities for them to monitor their own progress towards mastery of standards."                                                                                                             

    "We are now on a new mission to build upon our school’s success and to create a learning environment where each student experiences success,” says Latrica Gaynor, 2020 WMS Teacher of the Year. “We continue our focus on high-quality teaching and learning with an emphasis on connectivity with our students. By standing on our beliefs that students can learn and grow in a nurturing school environment that sets high expectations for all students and meets their social-emotional needs, we will continue to achieve greatness.”


     
    WMS picStudent Opportunities
    Students at Woodland Middle School have access to rigorous curricula, created with the intention of meeting individual student needs. Students in our school have placed in Science Fair, World Languages Fair, Family and Consumer Sciences, Literacy Day, District Spelling Bee, and Geography Bee. Former sixth grader Monica N. shared that the opportunities afforded at Woodland Middle School help students prepare for their future because "it gives you an opportunity to be open to public speaking and to maybe discover something that you never realized you would love. For example, Literacy Days has helped me like public speaking and to not be embarrassed or shy to speak in front of a crowd. Doing these competitions has also helped me accept loss and to be happy for the winner, which is something all students need to understand."
     
    Additionally, our counselors plan Career Day each year that allows students to explore careers across a wide range of professions--from professional athletes to writers, to CEOs and entrepreneurs. Eighth graders also have access to advanced learning high school-level courses in Mathematics, Science, Spanish, and Visual Arts that prepare students for high school and beyond.


     
    WMS picClimate and Culture
    At Woodland Middle School, we have a highly contagious climate that impacts our students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Our goal each day is to provide an environment that fosters our culture of working together to put our shared beliefs and values into action. Each month we proudly recognize our students and teacher of the month that exemplify Wolfpack Pride! Annually we honor and celebrate our Teacher of the Year and our ESPY (Exceptional Staff Person of the Year).

    Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) also play an integral role in what we do as a school. The 2020-21 school year was our first year of implementation. We have been successful in providing staff and students with school-wide expectations and consistent acknowledgment of our shared success. We have also had a collaborative effort with our CARES Team, which has implemented, monitored, built supports, and delivered professional development around school needs in cultural responsiveness, social-emotional wellness, and student connectivity with a caring adult.
     



    WMS pic Extracurriculars
    "The Woodland Way'' is the core of everything we do at Woodland Middle School. Being respectful, responsible, and our best is evidenced during athletics and extracurricular activities. Our 8th-grade boy's basketball team won the County Championship in 2020. Our FCCLA consistently participates in service-learning opportunities, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. The WMS FCCLA truly follows the "Woodland Way'' and FCCLA mission," as Sam D. notes, "it is important to help people who are struggling because of COVID. It is not their fault a pandemic happened, but it is our fault if we can help them out and choose not to."
     
    This student truly embodies the Woodland Way and shows that WMS is building the whole child. Another example of the resilience and determination of our WMS students was when our WMS Yearbook team developed creative ways to document the challenging school years of 2019-2020 and 2020-2021.  Our students are amazing and always find a way to have a positive impact on each other and on our community!

  •  Student Outcomes

     

     
    Woodland Middle School’s student outcomes information can be found on this dashboard. This information includes:

    • Georgia Student Health Survey Responses
    • Literacy Proficiency Rates

    The Georgia Student Health Survey is given to all k-12 students in Georgia in the spring of each school year. It is composed of a variety of questions that help our district better understand the student experience in our schools. The literacy information is calculated as the percentage of students reading on or above grade level determined by scores on the Milestones End-of-grade assessments for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade in English Language Arts. Each of these data components can be viewed for the previous three years. For more information about these measurements, please access the Woodland Middle School website.
