Woodside International School is a WASC-accredited, independent, college-preparatory and co-educational private high school.
Our student body consists of both American and International students in one "universal classroom." We foster a collaborative community spirit, and we have been cultivating a compassionate global community one student at a time for nearly 40 years.
We are located in the Sunset District of San Francisco one block from Golden Gate Park.
This gives our students access to all the diverse academic, cultural, recreational and community benefits of our wonderful city and is within easy commute distance from all over the Bay Area.
Our mission is to engage and support all of our students in becoming socially responsible critical thinkers and lifelong learners in order to prepare them for life beyond high school in the modern world.
Any interested students should contact the school to arrange a Student Shadow Day, where they can sit in on classes, meet students and teachers, and discover what being a Woodside student is all about.

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.
