Francisca WhitakerWelcome to Woodlawn Hills Elementary school, home of the Mighty Trojans. Thank you for visiting our web page. I’d like to start by giving you some history about our school.  We opened our doors in 1924 on Alton and Palm Streets and relocated to 110 Quill Drive in 1927 to serve the Woodlawn Lake area neighborhood. At that time, our campus was part of the Los Angeles Heights School District and opened as an elementary-junior high school. In 1949 when the Los Angeles Heights School District merged with SAISD, Woodlawn Hills became an elementary school. In 1997 a Bond Program funded a new building. This year marks the 20-year anniversary of our existing school building.

Woodlawn Hills Elementary School is grounded on the belief system, that all students are capable of success – no exceptions! Students focus on their goals to become successful readers, engaged problem solvers and lifelong learners. This can only be accomplished through a “TEAM” effort. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians and community. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their children’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the student. Together we have the capacity to improve the quality of our school community.  I invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, attending and supporting school events.

Our students proudly represent our campus in the following student clubs and groups:   Robotics, Cheerleading, Clase Magica, Bluebonnet Readers, Patrols and a Health Ambassador, who works with the city of San Antonio to promote health and wellness for our students, faculty and staff. We also take pride in our partnerships with UTSA, St. Mary’s University, Texas A&M Agrilife, San Antonio Youth Literacy (SAYL), YMCA, Northwest Lions Club of San Antonio, WalMart, San Antonio Firefighters Station 27, San Antonio Public Library, Bibliotech, Grand Hyatt, Scholastic, San Antonio Children’s Shelter and San Antonio OASIS.

Last school year, Woodlawn Hills Met Standard on the state accountability system and received a Distinction in the area of Student Progress. We provide our students with Bilingual, Special Education and Gifted and Talented programs. In the spirit of our school theme of Everyday Heroes our inspiration for our campus is that “All Woodlawn Hills Elementary Trojans can be an Everyday Hero and achieve success!”

Respectfully,
Francisca Whitaker
Principal
