Welcome to Woodland School
We Invite You To Explore What Makes Woodland Special
We are an independent Jr.K through 8th grade school set in bucolic Portola Valley on a safe, nurturing campus. At Woodland, we are committed to academic rigor, inclusive community and individual character development. Academics, community, and character provide the cornerstone of our program, and of our teaching philosophy. We strive constantly to improve our educational program through innovation and best practice, developing a lifelong love of learning, innovation and leadership in every child.
Our goal is to create an environment to promote the social and emotional learning of children, in the classroom and on the playground, building a foundation of character and discovery. We seek to create curious and responsible, local and global citizens who will excel in the 21st century world. In this close-knit community of caring and respect, where intellect and character are nurtured and students are encouraged to be individuals, confidence grows and our children thrive.
