How Woodland Christian High School sees itself
"Woodland is a vibrant community of learning where students are equipped for lives of Christian faith and service. Each student's abilities and interests are encouraged. Students come from Kitchener/Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Drayton, Listowel and surrounding areas (including international students). Students receive an excellent education which prepares them well for university and/or college. Students receive opportunities in varsity sports, music, drama, and international service trips."
"At Woodland, we strive to enfold students into a learning community that engages the minds and hearts of young people, equipping them for lives of Christian faith and service. Our students graduate with competence, but also creativity, character, and compassion rooted in a Christian worldview."
"Students graduate with the essential components of the OSSD but are also granted the Woodland Diploma that ensures they have been trained and educated holistically. Rather than focusing on program-specific outcomes, (ex. an arts school, a math school, a science school, a tech school, a sports school, etc. ) a Woodland education offers a balanced and enriched course of study that ensures that students are equipped in all areas of life."
"At Woodland, families are often surprised to find a community of like-minded parents and students with a common faith but many denominations and perspectives."
This information is not available.

Welcome to Woodland Christian High School. For over 44 years Woodland has offered an excellent academic program that seeks to integrate learning and the Christian faith. As an alumnus of Woodland and now as the principal I have seen how an education that aims to equip our students for lives of Christian faith and service can benefit individuals, church communities, and the broader civic community. I encourage you to take a few minutes to explore our website to become familiar with the diverse curricular and co-curricular programs that we have developed to meet the needs of our students. If you have any questions about our school please feel free to contact me.
Most big schools provide your extroverted child with plenty of social opportunities and the ability to interact with different peer groups with a wide range of personalities, interests, values, etc. A larger student population and more extracurriculars—including activities like team sports, arts programs, and debate—will give them a broader scope of opportunities to participate in events that scratch their interpersonal itch. “This may also give them the opportunity to hone certain skills,” say Ann and Karen Wolff of Wolff Educational Services. “For instance, they might run for student council to develop leadership and public speaking skills and learn to be a voice for other students.”
Make sure any prospective school, no matter what size, provides the right social environment to help your child feel at home, make friends, and develop confidence. This is especially important at big schools, which are sometimes more socially overwhelming and challenging for an introvert to find their bearings in. Of course, “Because larger schools usually have a more diverse student population, introverted kids are more likely to find a small group of people like them, a peer group they can relate to and find acceptance from,” says Dona Matthews, Toronto-based education consultant and co-author (with Joanne Foster) of Beyond Intelligence.
Bigger schools often have a broader scope of extracurricular activities, which is another way to help your child meet the right group of friends. “This may also give them the opportunity to develop certain skills,” say Ann and Karen Wolff of Wolff Educational Services. “For instance, they might run for student council to develop leadership and public speaking skills and learn to be a voice for other students. Remember, though, each child is different—so what works for one may not work for another.”
