    I absolutely love it here! Im am in the seventh grade and my teachers are super duper nice. The resources and books we have are unlimited from a library with lots of books to assigned computers in each classroom!

  • (3 years ago)

    This school is full of a bunch of yuppie clicquey parents with rich spoiled kids. Teachers are good admin is bureacratic with a board that only cares about the image of the school (don't get our new school dirty!). I have more than these people but it's annoying when they instill this attitude in their kids. Lacks in diversity so they shuttle the poor minority kids in from e. palo alto. A very sheltered academic environment full of ivy league wannabes.

    we love this school. our children are happy and thriving. the classes are small and the school has managed to maintain programs due to strong community support. we feel lucky to be here.

    While this school indeed has the resources to educate the children. It pretty much is run like a bureaucracy. I don't agree that this school educates "the whole child" as one other reviewer suggested. Instead it is the same as most public schools which drill for testing standards. In fact there is NO education on virtues or etiquette or simply. while this may be the parents domain I have seen other schools which celebrate and award good virtues. The other pitfall at theis school which is just reflection of the the community itself is the "clickiness" Be prepared for it it is fierce. Woodside is very aware of social classes. An unfortunate truth.

    This is the greatest school on earth. To this day my closest group of friends has remained the same since we all joined forces back in kindergaten. Great academics sports and an unparalleled community atmosphere. I wish I could go back and re-live my woodside elm days...

    Woodside School exemplifies the meaning of educating the 'whole child'. The administration teachers and parent community work together to provide an exceptional education in academics the arts and social learning from grade K-8.

    The parent involvement at Woodside K-8 is incredible. The 2010 8th graders are a terrific group of kids. Fun energetic possess a desire to learn and see the importance of a good education. I love teaching here!

    Starting with their onsite private preschool program through the eighth grade WES is unparralled in its leadership teacher quality parent involvement campus and child integrity. My two children have benefited tremendously from attending this fantastic school. The leadership has set the bar for the model public school.

    Have had two children attend this school. The community is able to support the school with not only fiscal resources but also personal involvement. All children should have the opportunities the students have at this school. There is a music and arts program like schools use to have before proposition 13.

    Excellent quality of both academics and extracurricular activities. Large parent involvement

  • (9 years ago)

    The programs at Woodside Elementary are great and the teachers really get to know the students and are really involved in helping the students succeed. There is a great music program that includes string instruments a band chorus etc. Art is also offered and there are many sports offered as well. For eighth grade all the eighth grade students participate in a musical play. This helps unite the graduating class and the students really enjoy this.
