Woodlynde School follows a college prep curriculum that both challenges and supports our students. Seniors can qualify to take dual-enrollment classes at Cabrini University and Landmark College for college credit. Through Metacognition classes, students are learning to become self-advocates, ready to own their learning. Woodlynde School graduates are talented, hard-working, and metacognitive thinkers who are ready to tackle the next step of their educational journey.
Yes, Woodlynde School offers three seasons of varsity and Middle School sports. In the fall, students can run cross country or play golf, volleyball, soccer, or tennis. In the winter, students can play on our basketball or bowling teams, and in the spring, students can play tennis, ultimate frisbee, lacrosse, and golf.
Woodlynde School has seven learning specialists who are experts in helping students acquire the academic and self-advocacy skills needed to become successful, independent learners.
There is one learning specialist who works with students in kindergarten through grade 6. The grade 7 learning specialist will support students throughout their time in Middle School until they transition into grade 9, at which point their new learning specialist will support them for their remaining four years of high school.
Woodlynde School is proud to implement the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching. Our students in Lower School participate in morning meeting and closing circle each day, while Middle School students have a responsive advisory meeting built into their daily schedule. Teachers utilize a variety of strategies and instructional models to bring together social-emotional and academic learning.
