School Calendar


Our staff, teachers, and students welcome you to the Donald E. Woods Opportunity Center (DWOC) website. Our focus is on student excellence and achievement. Our mission is to provide a high quality education for all our students. At DWOC our daily endeavor is to see all our students return to their home schools as soon as possible, prepared for success in college or career after graduation. You are welcome to contact us with any questions that you may have.

Community Support

We rely on the support of our community. Did you know Polk County is the 4th lowest funded district in the state? Polk is ranked 64th out of 67 districts. Despite this, our graduation rates have steadily increased. Here are a few ways you can get involved today:

1. Volunteer in your public schools - the time you volunteer will help our students succeed in life,

2. Advocate for your public schools - write or call your senator and local representative,

3. Donate resources to support the work we do daily - to provide a high-quality education to all,

4. Share in our student success stories via FacebookTwitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
