The East Woods' mission is to foster strength of character and academic excellence while developing and encouraging creativity, intellectual curiosity, and a lifelong passion for learning. We are a nurturing community that celebrates the differences among us and leads by example through citizenship and service to others.

Community

East Woods School is a friendly community of students, faculty, and parents that feels more like a family rather than just a school. Founded in 1946 by a small group of parents, East Woods remains a community of families seeking a school that is small by design, and promotes excellence in a nurturing environment.

At East Woods, we place a premium on character education. We focus on teaching and sustaining a community of kindness. We prioritize the importance of having respect for self and others, and the responsibility of giving back to local and global communities.
