Woodland Hills Elementary
Woodland Hills Elementary Rankings


Woodland Hills opened in 2013 and is one of eight elementary schools in the Waukee Community School District. We are located at 1120 South 95th Street in the city of West Des Moines. Our school serves students in Preschool through grade 5. Woodland Hills is a beautiful and spacious facility with ample classroom space to allow for future growth.

At Woodland Hills, we place student learning and helping each child reach his or her full potential as our primary focus. In addition to strong core academic, and social and emotional programs, our school offers additional support services in the areas of Reading Lab, Special Education, Extended Learning and English as a Second Language. With our strong emphasis on meeting the needs of all students through differentiated instruction and research-based best practices, students at Woodland Hills achieve high levels on state and national assessments.

We believe that through teaching, modeling and practicing, Woodland Hills students will show good character by demonstrating safe, caring, respectful, and responsible behaviors. We also believe that acknowledging and recognizing students when they demonstrate those core values will promote continued positive behavior.

In Waukee, we value the wonderful support of our families, the dedication of our volunteers, and the resources provided by our community. There are many opportunities for you to get involved and to volunteer at Woodland Hills. We encourage you to speak with your child’s teacher or attend a PTO meeting.

We can’t wait to meet, learn, and grow with you!
