I have to say over the past 3 years being here it was fun. I loved the teachers. I'm kind of sad that this is my last year here it was a great time being here.

This has been the best school my child has been to! The teachers are super nice and friendly, and they take it one step at a time to make sure that your child understands the concept that they are learning. The teachers also provide excellent opportunities for children with disabilities. The teacher assigns about 30 minutes to one hour of homework. It's my child's favorite school in the history of the schools she's ever been to.

Our experience with College Wood has not been good. Because the classes are overcrowded, the teachers push the education home to parents by assigning tons of homework. Our 4th grader often has two hours of homework per day, which is totally unacceptable. A number of parnets who live in our neighborhood are considering moving to get away from this school because of the amount of homework assigned. If you can avoid this school I recommend that you do so.
