Our Students make progress on purpose.
Welcome to J. E. Woodard Elementary School. We are located in Columbia, Tennessee, the heart of Maury County. The administration, teachers, and staff at Woodard are committed to student learning and success. During the 2011-2012 school year, we were recognized as a reward school in the state of Tennessee. This recognition was given to the schools that excelled in performance and/or progress based on state testing. Only the top 5% of Tennessee schools received this recognition. We received this status based on both areas. We are proud of our teachers, staff, students, and parents for their continued strive for success. We are Woodard.....where we make progress on purpose!
