We Stand Up. We Think Visibly. We are CW!

Welcome to Central Woodlands!

Our staff works hard to provide an education that engages the inquiring minds of our students.  At Central Woodlands, we take pride in providing learning opportunities that allow the thinking of our students to be visible and in order to reach their individual potential.  Our school is filled with adults who will do anything to make sure your child has a wonderful experience every day at school.  We pride ourselves on creating a “Stand Up” culture where students “Stand Up, Speak Out and Stand With!”  Our mission is to provide all learners with opportunities to acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to build meaningful and productive lives. Our school would not be what it is without the partnership and support of our community.  We encourage you to be an active participant in our school community and to volunteer as much as you can!

We invite you to visit our main office or contact our main office number at 616-493-8790 where we will be happy to help you!

Thank you for your support of Central Woodlands!
