Woodhaven students develop 21st century skills such as critical thinking and problem solving both in the classroom and throughout our learning environment each and every day. Staff at Woodhaven Middle School have recently begun implementing “Thinking Routines” with our students as we continue to model that we are all learners, capable of deep and meaningful thinking within our classrooms.
At Woodhaven Middle School we realize that academic growth occurs at different rates for different students. It is with this in mind that we provide various supports through a Response to Intervention model for our students. Programs like “Precision Reading” and Numeracy Groups are just two of the intensive supports available for students who require additional support for their learning. Other supports such as Homework Help, Escorted Intervention and Mentorship provide the necessary assistance to other students who require additional help to reach learning goals.
At Woodhaven Middle School we have a focus on supporting the health of our students. It is with this in mind that Daily Physical Education, provided by a team of dedicated Physical Education Teachers, is a core component of our daily structure. Purposeful physical activity, skill development and a focus on cooperation are at the core of our Physical Education Program.
We also recognize that emotional well-being and mental health are critical to student success. As such, our school counselor and our connections with community partners such as FCSS and Children’s Mental Health work to support students and families in this regard.
