Overview

Welcome!

We are Ross Woodward, where we learn about yesterday to build a new tomorrow!


Ross Woodward Classical Studies Magnet School's emphasis is on Socratic questioning and intellectual coaching that fosters the process of discovery. We nurture active learning and personal growth. At Ross Woodward we believe that students learn best when they are active thinkers who construct their own knowledge. Higher-order questioning and student dialogue are the central teaching and learning device at Ross Woodward. Schoolwide Seminar Day is a beloved Ross Woodward tradition. One week a month, our school community drops everything to think, listen and speak about our core values and the ideas upon which our school is built.

 

How to Know Ross Woodward is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child loves history and how understanding the past impacts our world today.

○ Your child is an active thinker who likes to question, think and debate by engaging in intellectual dialogue.

○ Your child likes to dive deep into ideas and explore them through hands-on, projectbased learning.
