“Woods is far ahead from other schools that we have heard of. The kids are staying engaged, connected to their peers and learning new skills. The teachers are making the best of this and the workload has been fine tuned.
“I feel that the administration and faculty have done an excellent job keeping the learning moving forward. I can tell that the faculty cares about our children and their education and I am grateful for their dedication.
