"A huge part of me getting into med school and cardiac surgery was due to the ELP at The Woodlands. It was the ELP program that got us to work hard and get our motivated. If you don't get a strong base there is no way you're going to make it to Cardiac surgery, and definitely not through it. The Woodlands gave that strong base."

"The ELP teachers are INCREDIBLY dedicated and hardworking, yes, but don't forget how nourishing it is to have ELP classmates. Classes move along at a satisfying clip, your peers raise questions that you were just about to ask --or even better, they raise questions that you hadn't even thought of yet, inspiring you to greater heights."

"My daughter attended the Gifted Program from grades 9 to 12. As parent council co-chair I was impressed with the staff and students alike. The educators developed instructional strategies providing and promoting challenging learning opportunities. The students rose to those challenges and excelled, developing their creativity, leadership, and teamwork. I was so glad to have been a part of the Woodlands."
Former Parent Council Co-Chair
"The ELP coordinators helped me figure out what I wanted to do after high school through the workshops and one-on-one counseling.
Now instead of just taking a university program for a degree, I'm actually studying something I'm passionate about. Thank you."
