In honor of President's day, it's important to note that the only U.S. President to have been a teacher was Woodrow Wilson. It's this reason that founders of Woodrow Wilson Academy in Westminster chose this President's name for their school.
WWA opened in 2000 after a unanimous approval by the Jefferson County school board. In fact, the school board termed the WWA charter application "flawless."
The school serves students in grades K through 8 and uses the Core Knowledge curriculum. The school also has a Home School Connection for homeschooling families and a Core Knowledge preschool.
The Principal, Tim Matlick, was a board member for many years before taking on the lead administrator job five years ago. His strong background in staffing and business management has been an asset to the school.
The WWA board has been a model for other schools in their financial practices, board policies, and use of technology. The board uses an entirely electronic board packet and the school no longer distributes a hard copy of the weekly newsletter. Instead, parents get it emailed to them.
It is proper for full disclosure to note that I'm currently serving as a community member on the WWA board.
