I like how Woodside ensures that every student can have access to at home internet and a computer. Additionally, Woodside has many educational opportunities for student to participate in like Avid, clubs, and Green/business academy. Woodside offers a wide range of classes that students can take in order to fulfill their A-G requirements. I would like to highlight that Woodside partners with the local community colleges enabling students to earn college credit towards their future. Woodside also offers many interesting electives like Foods and Nutrition, Drama, Photography, engineering, and so much more. Woodside is well known for some of our amazing sports teams like water polo and soccer. Woodside has an amazing new STEM building as well as our Digital Arts building that is very up to date with the latest technology.

As a freshman, receiving such a warm welcome from administrators, teachers, and students is refreshing. Woodside High School is renowned for its sports, academics and arts programs. The administration is known for offering continuous and exemplary student support and is known for their continued efforts for community outreach and giving every member of the Woodside community a sense of belonging. Advanced Standing classes offer many opportunities to expand knowledge in specific classes for both Freshman and Sophomores, a preview to what's to come in Junior and Senior year when it comes to Advanced Placement classes. In conclusion, Woodside is the pinnacle of combing a rich cultured working environment and a motivation to do good.
A great school! It has great higher level teachers. I really recommend (for English) Ms. Prodromo and Mr. Dolan, (For Math) Mr. Kaddura, and (for Spanish) Ms. Hanson. It also has a special needs program with dogs which is very sweet.
