Accreditation

Woodside International School has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) since 1984. We were awarded our latest six-year accreditation in the Spring of 2016.

Our Schoolwide Learner Outcomes (SLOs) were created by the faculty and administration as a set of learning goals and expectations to guide our curriculum. They reflect the school’s mission, values, program and global perspective in educating Inquiring Scholars, Healthy Individuals and Contributing Citizens.
