Woodbury High School

Woodbury High School Woodbury Junior-Senior High School is a comprehensive, community, middle and high school that serves students in sixth through twelfth grades from Woodbury, Gloucester County. More than 70% of their students enroll in Honors or Advanced Placement classes.

Woodbury City Public Schools was recently awarded a $1.5 million grant as part of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program and Out-of-School Time Resources. The money will go towards an after-school and summer activity program.

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.

Congratulations to the marching band and color guard. They won first place at the Wildwood Elks Parade earlier this year.

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.
