Early Childhood through Eighth Grade in the heart of Silicon Valley

Mission

Woodland's Mission

Woodland School is committed to bringing out the best in each child through a nurturing of both intellect and character. Rigorous academics, individualized attention and the core values of caring, respect and community combine to develop a lifelong love of learning, innovation, and leadership.


The mission of an independent school is the wellspring of vision and energy for the school. It captures the values and aspirations of the founders, the board of trustees, and the school’s leadership, and faculty. It helps guide decisions and helps set standards for assessing the school’s curriculum. Our blend of a traditional and inquiry--based approach that emphasizes critical thinking, creativity, character, collaboration, communication, and cross-cultural competency is rooted in our mission and designed to bring out the best in our students.
