Principal's Message

Woodrow Wilson Parents & Families,

I am reaching out to reassure you and make clear that the Woodrow Wilson Staff is wholeheartedly committed to the education and safety of your children.

The staff and administrative team take the safety of your children very seriously. We work to establish positive relationships with all our students and strive to instill and model positive interactions between students. Unfortunately, we’ve had a couple of student incidents since the start of the school year that have reflected poorly on our WW community. These incidents do not reflect the day-to-day culture and climate of the campus. The most recent incident was inaccurately portrayed on a social media platform. The information posted painted a picture significantly different from what really happened. Our students and staff take pride in Woodrow Wilson and we firmly believe Woodrow Wilson is a safe great place for students. We are a school that provides a high-quality education and opportunities for students to grow and develop.

We ask parents to remind their students to reach out to the adults on campus if they are experiencing any type of issue. We have a fabulous support team ready and willing to assist. Our two counselors, our social worker, our psychologist and our Hanford Police School Resource Officer Sean Snodgrass, along with the rest of the staff, are here to support our student body in working through the issues of adolescence.

We thank you for your continued support and encourage you to reach out with questions or concerns.

Matt Gamble

Report Card Resources

Report cards are delivered to parents once each trimester during the school year.  For Trimester 1, report cards are provided to parents at parent/teacher conferences on November 19th and 20th. For the second and third trimesters, report cards are mailed home at the end of each trimester.

Woodrow Wilson Junior High publishes a resource document for parents that provides a clear explanation of the grades students receive and the proficiency levels that students are expected to achieve.
