John H. Wood Jr. Charter District
To increase the capacity for human greatness!


Welcome to the John H. Wood, Jr. Public Charter District website. We are a charter district with six campuses in Texas serving students in San Antonio, San Marcos, Granbury, Rockdale, and Liberty Hill. Our district consists of six different campuses, delivering individualized education to at-risk students. We firmly believe that it is never too late to help a child, and our mission and philosophy reflect that. Our teachers and staff are dedicated to the success of each student—not only as a learner, but also a person.

We hope you’ll take moment and browse our new site. We know you’ll find it a great resource. If you still have questions, please give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you.

A Message From Our Superintendent


The first campus of John H. Wood opened in the fall of 1998. Originally serving approximately 30 students, our enrollment has grown to over 1,000. Our school has changed names and locations, but the one thing that has not changed is our dedication and love for all at-risk students.

On our ten campuses our faculty and staff offer students a challenging core curriculum with an accelerated academic focus in a supportive, structured environment, inspiring in them a desire to increase the capacity for human greatness. We know that many students who do not succeed in a traditional school setting can fall behind and miss the chance to lead a successful, productive life. Our goal is to give this opportunity back to each student: to inspire full potential, encourage self-discipline, and affirm self-worth. We want each of our students to believe they have the power to increase the capacity for human greatness!
