Woodside has an amazing performing arts program. Director Barry Woodruff and his team offer productions that rival Broadway. Music director Bill Tolles has done astounding work with the Jazz, Marching and Symphonic bands and the choir is fantastic! You can see an equal (and usually better) quality production at Woodside than the SF professional theaters offer. AMAZING to think the performers and crew are just kids and it's a great way for them to make fast friends with one another. Our theater friends from SF are always eager to see Woodside's productions, and bring more people with them each time. This is not your typical high school performing arts program.

I think that my son is getting an excellent education. The staff is awaesome. We have many friends that send their kids to $15-$30K private schools and I believe our son is getting the exact education. In his two years at the school he has not seen any violance or has he been harrassed. We are putting the $15-$30K per year towards college.

The teachers are sincere is trying to stay focused on their pupils. I don't think there is much control of the classrooms, therefore learning is not at a prime.

I am a recent graduate of Woodside High School and although, it is an excellent choice for academics, the school needs to work harder to asses students in the English and math classes. I am currently attending a junior college with about 50% of my class and majority of them are in English 100 and Math 101. These are remedial courses that shouldn't need to be taken. So, in order to make sure that Woodside students excel beyond Woodside, create a better plan that will help students pass assesment tests and actually keep the knowledge.


Posted November 7, 2003

I am not a parent at Woodside, however, my husband graduated from there in 1967, and I am a public school teacher. I want to congratulate the principal on her stance regarding the football team behaviors. If there are no consequences for inappropriate behaviors, those behaviors and others similar arelikely to continue. Keep up the good work. Parents who support the team playing are teaching their students that there are no consequences for behaviors.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
