Woodside High School is a fully-accredited, comprehensive four-year secondary school that has been serving the communities of the mid-Peninsula since 1958. The 34-acre campus is one of four comprehensive campuses in the Sequoia Union High School District. The District's total student population is approximately 8,000, with approximately 1,800 of those at Woodside.

Each school year is two semesters totaling 39 weeks of learning, and students follow a rotating block schedule with 95-minute classes every other day.  Most students enroll in six courses each semester.

Our student-to-teacher ratio is 26:1. Forty-five percent of our 114 certificated staff have a Master's degree.

Our mission is to provide opportunity that matches privilege.

We have been listed in Newsweek Magazine's list of top high schools, and offer one of the most rigorous advanced placement and college preparatory programs in the region.
