Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Woodside School

Woodside School has a reputation for innovation, creativity, dedication, and excellence. We have a highly qualified and progressive teaching staff that is committed to providing our students with culturally relevant and rigorous instruction using the core curriculum and supplemental resources to challenge each and every student. We all work hard to reach every child academically, as well as socially and emotionally. Over the years, we have transformed our school and have worked diligently to create a TK-8 program that is small, personalized, caring, and high achieving. We do this through project-based, hands-on, differentiated learning with a focus on educating the whole child. I am constantly in awe of the work and learning being accomplished every day from preschool to middle school.

Teachers connect the core curriculum to high quality interdisciplinary instruction, service and character development through a variety of student experiences including SEL curriculum, Middle School Advisory, buddies, leadership, student council and service learning. Our Kindergarten through 5th grade teachers work in teams to develop rich curriculum to meet the diverse needs of our students. The Middle School teachers work within and across grades during our enrichment/elective classes to support the many talents, interests, and needs of our students. This framework enables us to build a strong sense of community and positive relationships with our students, teachers, and families.

I look forward to working with you as we continue Woodside Schools shared vision of academic excellence for all students.
