Our student body is a creative and diverse group of American and international students. We accept students in grades 6-8 for our English for Language Learners program, and we accept applicants for our 9th-12th grade classes. Whether the student’s talents and interests are in art, science, languages, philosophy or other subjects, Woodside’s comprehensive curriculum is able to engage a wide range of students.

The School

The School

We believe that every child can be academically successful in a nurturing environment where the school staff truly cares. The curriculum is unique in its breadth. Woodside offers more courses in a given semester than the standard school schedule. Besides the major college prep classes, students take courses in philosophy, current events, PE, health, and art every semester through high school. All students benefit from this breadth, one that still focuses on the core classes. The result is a broader and more interesting educational experience.
