Description from 2019 State of the Division Annual Report

"Located in the urban ring of Albemarle County, Woodbrook Elementary is a beautifully updated facility that doubled in size during the 2018-19 school year and went from serving approximately 350 to about 580 diverse students. With this change in size came a paradigm shift in Woodbrook’s instructional model. The newly designed space includes open classrooms where teachers and students can learn and grow together in multi-age settings. Woodbrook is a neighborhood school that thrives on community partnerships to support each child in their academic and social and emotional growth—working together to instill a lifelong love for learning."
