Woodstock School is a Community of Learners
Students and staff grow together as they experience our unique location and the diverse cultures and gifts of our community. They develop an attitude of open enquiry which lasts a lifetime.
Woodstock School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme (DP)*. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Woodstock School believes is important for our students. Following a phased implementation approach, Woodstock started offering the IB’s Middle Years Programme (MYP) in Grades 6-8 in July 2017. The Woodstock Class of 2021 will be the first cohort of students to graduate with both the American High School Diploma and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Woodstock’s capital ‘C’ curriculum is broadly defined, including academics, enrichment, and residential life. It is our belief that those students who participate fully in holistic learning are best prepared to live meaningful, successful lives, and are equipped to make significant contributions to the world around them. Woodstock’s educational philosophy is based on the belief that greatness resides within each and every student.
Each person has a unique combination of interpersonal, linguistic, mathematical, musical, artistic, kinaesthetic and naturalist ‘intelligences’. Woodstock’s broad and balanced curriculum allows students to find, express and develop these intelligences equally in academic courses, in residential life and in enrichment experiences.
In keeping with this approach, our learning outcomes for the whole community are broad and challenging.
