Woodside Avenue School is nestled among the trees in suburban Franklin Lakes, NJ. Its warm, inviting appearance reflects the supportive, team approach espoused by its highly committed professional staff. Woodside serves a school community of approximately 250 students grades K-5. Once within its walls, one immediately senses the commitment to providing a positive learning environment for its students; one in which individual differences are paramount in the development of age-appropriate activities, and in which students develop the tools to become self-sufficient, life-long learners. A highly skilled staff utilizes the most effective teaching strategies to accomplish these goals.
At the heart of the school is the omnipresent sense of doing what is best for all children. Preparing our students for the future is something we address daily. Looking at individual growth and improvement, developing hands-on tasks, developing and communicating the assessment process, providing on-going staff development, and fostering students’ emotional and social development are concepts that enrich our district and school.
