About Us

Wood Acres Elementary School was first constructed in 1952 on donated land. In 1975, the school was renovated and a new gymnasium was added. Our next renovation began in the summer of 2001 and was finished in August 2002. Currently we are waiting for our new addition to be completed in 2016.  This new addition will give us eight classrooms in addition to much needed office and storage space.  Our cafeteria has also expanded to accommodate more students during lunch periods.  We will move back into our building on Cromwell Drive in the summer of 2016.  

Our mascot is the Wildcat, and our school colors are royal blue and white!
