Admission Process & Dates

Admission Process

Step 1: Inquire

Step 2: Register for a Tour or Open House

We believe that the best way for you to get to know Woodland School is to visit our campus. You may register for tours and open house from our admission application system, Ravenna (see step 3 below). Or, you may contact the Admission office at admissions@woodland-school.org or (650) 285-5229.

Step 3: Complete Our Online Application

  • Log into or create an account in Ravenna >> (Our admissions system)
  • Login to your account
  • Add children to the system
  • Enter your household information
  • Browse the school directory and click ‘Apply’ under Woodland School

Step 4: Schedule an Evaluation/Shadow Date

Our enrollment procedure requires an assessment visit for each student. During their visit, students are required to participate fully in the daily activities of their class.

Early Childhood and Kindergarten – If your child is entering Kindergarten in the fall, evaluations will take place on a Saturday morning in February 2017. Early Childhood applicants will be invited to visit in small groups during the school day in spring 2017.

Grades 1-8 — If your child will be entering the first through eighth grades, they will be evaluated during a one-day visit in their current grade level from 8:15am – 3pm (2pm on Fridays).

During their visit, applicants will have informal math and reading assessments to help us determine how they fit with the class. These assessments are separate from the required SSAT or ISEE testing for middle school applicants.

Step 5: Schedule Your Parent Interview

Once you have completed the above steps, the admission office will contact you to schedule your parent interview. You are welcome to contact the admission office directly to schedule the interview at mrothenberg@woodland-school.org.
