  •  Highlights

    The following school highlights are just a few of the things that make Woodland High 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.

    WHS picStudent Outcomes
    It has been a tremendous year of growth for Woodland High School, and we pride ourselves on academic achievement. With a College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) of 80.4 on the most recent score, Woodland High School has made significant academic gains over the last couple of years with regard to student achievement. We are a school that focuses on academic achievement, literacy, the fine arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities for our students. We offer over 21 Advanced Placement courses and are one of the only schools in the district to offer the AP Capstone Diploma program.

    Dr. Shannon Ellis, former WHS Principal, stated, “Woodland High School is a great place to learn and grow. We take pride in building relationships with students and focusing our Continuous Improvement Plan on executing those focused and targeted actions that will lead to strong gains in academic achievement. We also have an important emphasis on improving literacy. It is important to me that our students are able to read and write effectively and have mechanisms in place to constantly improve our literacy skills within a school year and across our students' high school career. We are here to be an academic powerhouse within our school district and we are well on our way to achieving that goal for our students and our school community.”

    WHS picStudent Opportunities
    Woodland High School understands the value of enrichment for all students. Each WHS entity strives daily to expose each of our students to as many opportunities as possible in order to optimize students’ awareness of the unlimited possibilities that exist for their future career paths and lives. Kayla Slack, a 2019 WHS graduate, recognizes that "if it weren’t for the RESA literary competition, I don’t think I would’ve had the courage to be where I am today — pursuing my passion as a Creative Writing major at Berry College." The mother of Rawlin Tate, also a 2019 WHS graduate, exudes that “because of the wide range of development opportunities afforded Rawlin as he matriculated at Woodland High School, we have proudly watched him grow into the confident, articulate, and well-rounded young leader that he is today”. As the first African-American male valedictorian at Woodland High School, Rawlin excelled in multiple Advanced Placement and Honors courses, allowing lucrative scholarship offerings, including full-ride scholarships to two of his top-choice schools. At North Carolina A&T State University, Rawlin continues to be a straight-A scholar! Rawlin’s leadership and social skills were greatly enhanced while serving as a peer mentor/mediator, a cabinet member of the Superintendent’s Advisory Council, a multi-honor society participant, and class vice president. 
    Teamwork and time management were instilled in Rawlin as a football player, marching/wind symphony band leader, and a Reading Bowl and Math Team competitor. He also seized the opportunity to polish his public speaking skills during the Poetry Slam contests. WHS believes that opportunity is key!”

    WHS picClimate and Culture
    "Woodland High School fosters a feeling of community. I feel--and felt--welcomed and appreciated, as a student and as a person at Woodland; and the teachers, faculty, staff, and students that I met at Woodland are now a large, extended family to me." said former student Tamecka Marecheau-Miller. "As a student here at WHS, I always felt welcomed and wanted in my world language classes. My Early Childhood Education teacher inspired me to pursue teaching, and I ended up going to school for Early Childhood and Special Education before switching to Spanish in my final year of college. My decision to return to Woodland to teach was 100% because I knew that I would be working with the best team ever!" Sheena Martinez, class of 2015 and current WHS faculty member. At WHS students are supported by teachers and administrators who truly want the best for our students. From our 9th-grade High School Transition course all the way through graduation, students are supported by a school community that truly cares about their learning and development.

    Our "Welcome to WHS" drive-thru celebration for our incoming freshman class this year was EPIC! We also love to celebrate our students with a Leader of the Pack Award as well as participate in Kindness Week activities. We are a school family and love showing our "Unity in Our Diversity"! 

    WHS pic Extracurriculars
    Woodland High School students have the opportunity to participate in a diverse collection of extracurricular activities ranging from academic and social clubs to various athletics, to the fine arts. Currently, the school offers 19 different athletic teams and 51 extracurricular activities, including academic, fine arts, and social organizations. These opportunities have allowed our students to grow not only academically, socially, and athletically, but also culturally. Cai Starr, a student from the 2021 senior class stated, “From these experiences, I see myself using everything I have learned in my life making me more culturally aware and prone to continue to pursue more real-life experiences that I can build upon.” Another senior from the 2021 class, Jeremy Owens, shared a similar experience when asked about the impact of participating in the band has had on his high school career. He stated, “It gave me a lot of opportunities to meet new people and build different types of relationships with them.” Furthermore, at WHS, our athletics program prides itself on placing the emphasis on the student before the athlete by encouraging students to explore the various opportunities available to them inside and outside of the classroom.
    Our Athletic Director, Coach Stokes, who was named the 2020 GADA Athletic Director of the Year for Region 4-AAAAA, explains that “we have a diverse group of student-athletes at Woodland High School who not only participate in athletics but also fine arts and other extracurricular activities which help to provide our students with a holistic high school experience.”

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 9th grade Literature and American Literature. The 4-year cohort graduation rate is also displayed on this dashboard. Each of these data components can be viewed for the previous three years.
