Woodward Park Middle School Celebrates 50 Years! In 1966, Woodward Park opened its doors to its first students. We would love to have some historical anecdotes and pictures from you! If you attended Woodward Park and have a fun story to share, we would love to hear it. As a parent, I often take pictures of my kids in the main hallway or by the lockers after concerts and other events. If you have pictures like that, we would love to see them!
In the main lobby is a hand painted map of the building which includes a wood shop, drawing, metal shop, audio visual and projection rooms. There’s still a “dark room” sign in the upper back hallway. Unfortunately, current students only know these rooms as additional classrooms. We would love to have some history to share with the students in our yearbook and during our Chili Cook-Off.

You may send in copies of pictures and your stories electronically to Beth Maston, bmaston [at] columbus [dot] k12 [dot] oh [dot] us; you may drop off pictures and stories at the school office, attention to Beth Maston; or you may mail items to Woodward Park Middle School, attn: Beth Maston, 5151 Karl Rd., Columbus, OH 43229
Please stop by our Chili Cook Off on February 25, 5:30-7:00 p.m. to see the building and meet current teachers and students.
