High School Placement

Next Schools Program

We work closely with our students and parents to facilitate the high school admissions process in our "Next Schools" program. This includes meeting with families to provide information, review timelines, and prepare students for testing. The strong relationships we maintain with high schools throughout the Bay Area help us guide you in identifying, evaluating and applying to the most appropriate schools for your child. Our graduates have a strong track record of admission success and typically have the luxury of selecting from their top choices.

Our graduates consistently report being well-prepared for the academic, social, and organizational challenges of high school. They see themselves as having a distinct advantage over their classmates in writing, math, and the ability to tackle projects effectively.

If you would like to learn more about our Next Schools program, please contact Lou Douglas at ldouglas@woodland-school.org.

We are very proud of our graduates and place a high value on their success in high school and beyond. Woodland students have matriculated to the following public and private high schools.
