Clyde Woodworth Elementary Imagine Learning Magnet School

A STEAM and Project Lead the Way School

School Overview

Clyde Woodworth Elementary Imagine Learning Magnet is a STEAM and Project Lead the Way school. Our original claim to fame originally took place in 2004, when students performed so well on state tests that they raised their Academic Performance Index (API) scores by an amazing 71 points—then the highest growth in the Inglewood Unified School District.

To this day, students continue to earn high test scores, with Woodworth Elementary ranking 10 out of 10 among similar schools statewide.

Woodworth offers a wide variety of programs and activities for students including:

  • Tutoring and Intervention Classes
  • Gifted and Talented Education
  • Peer Mediators
  • English Language Development
  • Drill Team

Parents support their children’s education through school leadership committees and parent education classes. Community partnerships are another part of what makes Woodworth Elementary School shine.

During the 2005-2006 school year, for example, Watt Developers presented Woodworth with a check for $7,000 to be used towards a new school marquee, new curtains for the multipurpose room, and the school’s campus reforestation project.

Our Focus

The focus of our school is to be the place that facilitates an amazing learning journey for all of our students through science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) and Project Lead the Way. This goes from a focus on academic greatness, to keeping a clean and organized campus, and also assuring the safety of our students, staff, and their families.

We encourage participating in collaborative efforts while hosting an environment of easy focus and concentration without distractions for our students.

Another very important highlight of our school in particular that really makes us stand out, is our clear focus on addressing and stopping the issue of bullying on our campus. We provide resources for parents, administrators, and students on how bullying can be prevented and addressed. Resources include publications, sample policies, and frequently asked questions.

Bullying is common, but it should not be viewed as a normal part of growing up. It has a proven negative effect on a student’s ability to learn.

Schools are responsible for creating safe environments for all students, and we take this responsibility very seriously.

School Highlights

The major highlight of our school is our success in academics and high test scores. We even rank 10 out of 10 among similar schools statewide. Woodworth Elementary campus is a safe haven before, during, and after classes for our entire Woodworth family.

We also focus on providing opportunity to our students beyond academics and into the arts, sports, and other extracurricular activities. Our school recognizes and emphasizes the critical communication opportunities between school, community, and home as a measure of our collective success.

Partnerships with numerous businesses, organizations, and individuals continue to bring resources and activities to the Woodworth campus. To teach our students about the importance of nature conservation, the Woodworth community also participated in three tree plantings projects that took place at the school, with a total of 60 trees to be planted on campus.

The project was made possible by the U.S. Forest Service, LA County Office of Education, Tree People, Home Depot, Starbucks, and Woodworth teachers.

In the end, Woodworth students will enjoy a comfortable and beautiful school environment that they helped to create with their own hands.
