Sequoia Union High School District Reviews

While my school and the district are not perfect, I have really enjoyed being a part of my school over the past four years and do not at all regret choosing Woodside. Most of the teachers were great, with the exception of a few whose styles or mannerisms I simply did not agree with, however the rest of the staff are very friendly and supportive! They really appreciate feedback from students especially in recent years when they have been experimenting with a possible new schedule as well as with extracurriculars. Overall I feel that Woodside and the district as a whole, while it could benefit from some new programs and regimes, tries its hardest to be a place where students feel comfortable and strive to learn and improve themselves.

I have enjoyed my time at Woodside High School, for I had a number of unique opportunities inside the classroom and out. Woodside has a marching band in which I have participated in for four years, and I have developed close relationships with fellow band members and been able to become drum major my senior year. Yet this is the only marching band in the district and I wish other schools offered this opportunity as well. The teaching staff at Woodside is positive and always helpful, and I would think that this carries across the district. Each school in the district has been developing a new wing of classrooms, which is exciting. I cannot say that this is necessarily the best use of funding, but they seem like good additions to the school. I wish that there was a district-wide debate league for each school to participate in, for Woodside's debate league had to drop our school due to our lack of financial need.
Sequoia high school is great! I have really loved the IB program and all of my past and current teachers are always ready to help me- even outside of class time. During lunch, students are eating with their friends all throughout campus, both inside and out.
The school is constantly going through improvements so that students will have better and better utilities and items for them to use in their education.
