Woodside Glens is served by the Woodside Elementary School District and Woodside Sequoia Union High School District. Woodside Elementary scores in the upper 900s on the API, while scores tend to drop off at Woodside High. This is largely due to students from different elementary school districts being intermixed at the high school level, and most top-performing students continue to do well regardless of the school’s API attending prestigious national universities including Stanford, UC Berkeley, other UC campuses, and the Ivies. High School alternatives include Summit Prep which is a small charter high school dedicated to sending its economically diverse students to top ranked Universities.
