The first campus of John H. Wood opened in the fall of 1998. Originally serving approximately 30 students, our enrollment has grown to over 550. 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 six campuses our faculty and staff offer students a challenging core curriculum with an accelerated academic focus in a supportive, structured environment, inspiring in them the belief for a better life — a life worth living. 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 create a life worth living.
