I worked at Woodbury JR/SR high school for 1.5 years and let me tell you half the students are very nice young adults while the other think they are living in a BET video. The new administration has no backbone and won't discipline the students who cause the trouble. The downtown area is ok but mostly you'll see riff raffs and gangsta wannabes if you look close enough. Some parts of the town are beautiful and other parts are down right trashy. Depends on what side of tracks you want to live in. Consider sending your kids to a private school but if you don't have any kids you might want to invest in a shotgun for home defense. It is considered a urban school district so they do get state and federal funding. That's all I can tell you now, you'll have to make up the rest for yourself. I'm glad I got out of that school because it is headed down the tubes.
