Located just west of 280 at Alpine Road, 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.
Lower School Innovation Lab
Kindergarten students write programs before they code BeeBot. BeeBot helps our young programmers learn computing skills and apply computational thinking. As they program BeeBot on our various mats and activities, they are engaging in decomposition, sequencing, collaboration, and problem solving. Students planned their programs through a community and in a toy store.

Woodland School Reviews
Our son's class size is 12 and our daughter's is 15. The teachers and staff really know our kids. They are kind, thoughtful and smart. The kids have homework, but not too much. The arts are fully integrated into the curriculum which is amazing.
The Head of School is terrific. Dr. Warren has been calm and confident while navigating Covid on top of everything else involved with running the school. She is also very kind and accessible to the kids and parents.
The families are all nice normal people. We wish that we'd made the switch sooner!
