These analysis are used to identify methodologies to improve instruction. During PLCs teachers collaborate on strategies, engage in a variety of activities including sharing a vision, visiting and observing each other's classrooms, and participating in shared decision making.
Our special needs students and our second language learners are serviced by dedicated teachers, and we are extremely proud of the fact that these students have also shown consistent growth in their academic subjects. Our general education, English Language Learners/Bilingual, and special education students all receive the same educational experiences. Our guidance counselor and social worker support the social, emotional and academic needs of our students.
Students are offered breakfast, lunch and a snack for those participating in the after school enrichment program. Students participate in physical activity during PE and recess. Students are taught about nutrition during health class. Students have access to a dental clinic. They also have access to a physical examination if needed.
We have an active PTO who works tirelessly to involve parents and the community in the various charitable events i.e. Thanksgiving dinners for the less fortunate families, Pennies for Patients and St. Jude Children'sHospital. Additionally, they support the students/teachers in activities that contribute to a positive culture in the school.

Woodrow Wilson School No. 19 has a uniform policy. All students in grade pre-K to grade 8 are required to wear the district uniform every day (dress uniform or P.E. uniform).

There are Smartboards or Starboards in every classroom which are utilized by all teachers for instruction. We have implemented the use of technology in all grades K-8; whereby all teachers have a portion of their instructional materials available to students for anywhere/anytime learning and for parents to have access to their child's curriculum and materials that can help the parent support the child's learning at home.
