The leader in meAt Woodland Hills, we strongly believe that all students have leadership skills. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People are integrated into our current school traditions, systems, curriculum and culture, and work in close connection with our school-wide PBIS, guidance, and classroom curriculum.
