Woodland West Elementary is a Jefferson Parish Public School located in Harvey, Louisiana, which is a suburb of the city of New Orleans.   We have a current enrollment of over 800 students in grades K-6 and a staff of 60.   Closed circuit cable televisions as well as computers are located in every classroom.  Uniforms (J & L Uniforms, Kellie's Uniforms, and Johnson's Uniforms) for students are mandatory.

We offer before and after school care and a breakfast and lunch program.  We have the services of a full-time ESL teacher, speech therapist, social worker, gifted teacher, and eight special education teachers.  Our Kindergarten through third grade are self-contained and we use block scheduling with our fourth grade.  Fifth and sixth grade are departmentalized.   Woodland West participated in looping from 3rd to 4th grade during the 1999-2000 school session which was a complete success. 

 

Our school has a library which is maintained by the account clerk and parent volunteers.  We are currently using the Winnebago software program and all of our library books as well as resource materials are listed in our library computer.
