Shadowing Program

What is shadowing at Woodrow Wilson High School?

Shadowing is the opportunity for eighth grade students and transfer students to spend one-half day at Woodrow Wilson and experience firsthand what it’s like to be a member of the Woodrow family. Students that shadow are paired with a Woodrow student who is in one of our academies or in the Student Council.

When should I schedule a shadow visit?

Ideally eighth grade students will schedule their shadowing dates in the fall November through January.  Each student is asked to shadow only once.  (Shadowing will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays)

How many students can schedule on a single day?

 Normally no more than 5 students will be scheduled to shadow on a single day.

How far in advance should I schedule a shadowing visit?

Please allow Woodrow three school days to schedule a visit.

How do I schedule a shadowing visit?

Those interested in shadowing should call Mrs. Castañeda – 972.502.4404

What is a shadowing day like?

Students shadowing should arrive at Woodrow by 8:45 am and report to the Principal’s Office (Room 1007). There the students will be paired with their Woodrow host until 11:40.am, at this time students may be picked up in the Attendance Office.

What is the dress code for shadowing?

Students shadowing at Woodrow are asked to dress nicely (NO JEANS). While the shadowing students are not required to wear their current school uniform they are asked to dress appropriately in keeping with the Woodrow dress code: white, red, gray or black polo shirt; khaki or black Khaki pants; closed toe shoes. 

Can I shadow with a Woodrow student that I know?

It is not best practice to allow students to shadow with someone they know.  The shadowing student will be paired with a Woodrow student council member.
