Principal's Message

Principal Diane Burbank attending an Open House exhibit
Over the past half-century, Woodside High School has emerged as one of the most dynamic and diverse comprehensive high schools on the San Francisco Peninsula.

Our campus now provides new facilities and technology amongst the best anywhere, and our steady stream of innovations have included a renowned robotics program and a recently introduced Green Academy, a program on the cutting edge of a new green economy.

Understandably, Woodside High now attracts more students than ever before. Yet, even with the growth we’ve experienced, we remain true to our core values of providing a personalized learning environment and a commitment to meeting the individual needs of all students – wherever they fall on the academic achievement spectrum or area of particular interest in high school and beyond.

We keep our class sizes small, offer a choice of small-learning communities, and provide a plethora of student support programs. In addition, our outstanding Counseling Department and College & Career Center provide individualized planning and support to all students and their families.

Along with a robust academic program and a breadth of student support services, Woodside High School provides exceptional opportunities for students to participate in a wide range of interscholastic sports, visual and performing arts programs, and other student enrichment activities.

Please be sure to visit our Parent Tour and Student Shadow pages for opportunities to see the campus, observe classes, and speak with administrators, counselors, and other staff. We look forward to meeting you!
