Student Life

East Woods School offers a wide range of enrichment programs that provide many opportunities for students to explore and learn in a safe and nurturing environment. We cultivate confidence through our philosophy that making a mistake presents the best opportunity to learn and grow. Our students are taught to be fearless in the face of failure. They are encouraged to raise their hands, to stand tall, and to ask questions.
