A Democratic School
Woodland embraces and practices the following elements of democratic education:
- shared decision-making among the students and teachers
- a student-centered approach to learning
- a mixed age environment
- the community as an extension of the classroom
- a student and teacher run Judicial Committee
At Woodland Community School students have a choice in what they study, with whom they work, and how decisions are made at the school.
