From Woodland School

Located just West of Stanford, in the heart of Silicon Valley, Woodland School is an independent day school serving students in early childhood (preschool/preK) through eighth grade.

At Woodland, we believe students learn best when they are inspired. With rich content and an emphasis on student-driven projects, students are empowered and encouraged to be active and engaged learners.

Kindness is in the curriculum. We focus on character building because it takes both strength of mind and heart to live with integrity, to find one's passions, and to create meaningful change in the world.

Woodland School Reviews

This is our third year at Woodland. We love it but, more importantly, our kids love it. The teachers and staff do take the time to actually know your kid and they do a great job at meeting their individual needs. Community is not just a word around here. It does exist. And you understand that it does take a village to raise a child - or three! Can't recommend it enough.

Woodland School is an amazing place! My children transitioned into the school from another independent school and have been thriving since day one (3 years ago!). The teachers really do take the time to know each student and help them discover their best selves. Despite the Bay Area bubble of wealth and success, Woodland manages to keep the kids grounded. We are so grateful to be part of this community!
Our son started in the ECC program this year, and he loves it. The school is very educationally creative, and the students are kind and intelligent. My son says he enjoys the class and already knows everyone's name. The open learning environment encourages building skills and becoming more independent. We also like their after school programs where the students can focus on certain interests after school hours on campus.
