Woodbury feels that a student's education does not end when the bell rings at the end of each day. According to their website, various activities and athletics at the Junior and at the Senior High strive to enhance what the student has learned in the classrooms with a practical, hands-on program that will expose the student to how the lessons learned in the classrooms can be used in the real world. Activities include Junior and Senior High Yearbook, White and Gold newspaper, National Honor Society, Theater Club, Robotics Team, WHS Choir, WHS Band and others.

The Robotics Team at Woodbury is a group of students interested in pursuing a career in engineering and technology. This team learns to design and build a robot. Robots from previous years included one modeled after the 2010 Camaro and one that was designed to retrieve and construct parts of an airplane.

The High School Band comprises several bands, including the Concert Band and the Marching Band. All members of the Marching Band are also members of the Concert Band. The other bands at the High School level are the Wind Ensemble and the Jazz Band. These bands include selected musicians from the Concert Band.

Staff members in the yearbook club learn to organize, plan, and lay out text and artwork for the high school yearbook. They also learn photography and Photoshop skills in meetings before and after school.

Woodbury High School is the oldest member of the Colonial Athletic Conference, which is composed of smaller schools. Woodbury’s many athletic teams include Boys and Girls Soccer, Boys and Girls Tennis, Boys and Girls Indoor Track, Boys and Girls Swimming, Boys and Girls Cross Country, Boys and Girls Track and Field, Boys and Girls Basketball, Football, Wrestling, Golf, Baseball, Field Hockey, Cheerleading and Softball.
