Woodstock Day School offers co-curricular and extra-curricular programs which complement the school’s mission and program, expand the areas of study and interest for students, provide interesting choices and offer many after-school activities.
During the school day, the curriculum is enriched through co-curricular programming such as field trips, music and dance, health classes, electives, PE, and our winter mini-week of “Intensives.”
Upper school electives expand to include French, our literary journal The Battering Ram, film-making, and poetry. For students so inclined, the Advanced Ensemble rock band offers intensified lessons in music performance, improvisation, theory and multiple opportunities to play both in school and local concerts.
These expanded electives require focus, dedication, and perseverance.
In addition to electives, WDS devotes a three day period each year to our “Intensives.” Both faculty and guest teachers from the surrounding community schedule special classes, ranging from textile arts to forensic science to cooking and more, all designed to enhance the WDS educational experience in an enticing and experiential way, from preschool through 12th grade. Intensives also offer students windows into the worlds of the visiting teachers, thereby broadening their experience and knowledge of their community and opportunities for engaging, enriching work.
