Local Student Tuition & Financial Aid

Woodside International School is introducing a new tuition structure for local families. While there are many public and private school choices in the Bay Area, very few satisfy family hopes for a combination of academic excellence, individualized instruction, and affordability. This renewed focus on local families, combined with our continuing tradition of generous need-based financial aid, ensures that every student can afford a Woodside education.

Affordable Payment Plans

Woodside International offers flexible payment plans to help families afford private school. We believe that all students should have access to high quality education, so we work with families to find a payment plan that works for them.
