School Reviews

Woodside gives an incredible opportunity for an international student to adapt to the American system of education. The school has a perfect balance of necessary and reasonable academic load that is essential in entering a good university. For me one of the most important things about Woodside is a friendly environment and a very attentive and concerned attitude towards the success and the individual growth of my daughter. I really appreciate a very prompt reaction towards any type of problems. My daughter has been studying in Woodside since her Freshman year (2010). By the end of her Junior year, she took the TOEFL exam and passed it obtaining 83 points. Being an international student, this result lets her choose almost any university. The school helped her to determine what field studies is the most appealing to her. She is much more confident, calm and positive. I''m glad that she''s going to finish the high school in Woodside.
