Innovative School

You belong at Woodside

We’re designing an innovative school for you! In 2022, San Juan Unified School District launched an effort to reimagine what was possible in elementary education and an innovative school effort to create a new learning experience at an elementary or K-8 school in the district. 

In the 2022-23 school year, Woodside TK-8 was selected to be the home of the district’s innovative school program, with development work happening in the 2023-24 school year prior to the full launch in 2024-25.

School staff, supported by the innovative school's team, have begun to develop an educational model that embraces innovation itself rather than settling on a specific theme or educational model with the intent of continually ideating, prototyping and refining practices as the needs of students, families and staff members change over time. The design process will focus on three key areas: 

  • Belonging & Wellness

  • Hands-on Experiential Learning

  • Leadership and Connection
