    The Saydel School District is a great district to put your kids in. The communication and teachers are great at Saydel.

    I have been very displeased with Woodside and the District all together. I feel the lack of communication is terrible. I also agree Very Poor Teacher Guidance and Administrators in all ways. Of the surrounding Districts they have the highest IEP students
