I am happy to share this link to our State of the School video message, and to provide an executive summary.
The State of the School focuses on using the January survey of our parents, faculty, and students in grades 7 – 12 to help our community identify areas of strengths and weakness and help us chart a path of growth and improvement.
We are a culture of high expectations – we want the best for our students – and our commitment to lifelong learning means we are committed to constant improvement for Woodlawn, gathering valuable information and using it to build on strengths and improve weaknesses.
Explorers Program for Ages Four and Five to Launch This Year
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – June 23, 2021 – Woodlawn School, an independent K-12 school noted for project-based learning and academic excellence, is launching a new early childhood development program - Woodlawn Explorers Preschool. Designed for children ages 4 and 5, Explorers Preschool embraces the Woodlawn “whole child” approach to learning, and making sure that its students are prepared socially and academically for kindergarten.
“The new program and its responsive classroom approach are natural extensions of all we do at Woodlawn,” said Holly Honeycutt, Woodlawn School Head of Lower School. “Explorers Preschool is all about creating a supportive environment that nurtures adaptive, respectful and emotionally intelligent young students who are eager and ready to learn."
Please meet the newest member of our team, Kevin Coale. Kevin will serve as Assistant Director of the Middle School working in conjunction with Holly Honeycutt.
We first met Kevin as a candidate for the Athletic Director position. Everyone who met him quickly realized he would be an excellent candidate for many roles at our school. He has fourteen years of experience teaching History, and his special passion is teaching Middle School students. He has served as a Dean of Students, directed International programs, led Capstone curriculums, and created Middle and Upper School Student Leadership curriculums focused on hands-on, student-led, “learning by leading,” experiential approaches to coaching and nurturing the multifaceted elements of leadership that benefit all children.
