Farm School -
Woodside strives to encourage the development of the adolescent during this sensitive age by continuing the Montessori philosophy of the "whole child" and encouraging and strengthening their self-confidence at this critical period of their lives. Our curriculum is structured to help each student discover his or her own unique values through a prepared and expansive environment. The design is both rigorous and personal and provides a strong, healthy foundation for high school. Woodside works to offer, what Montessori called, Erdkinder (children of the land) opportunities to our students that address the cognitive, physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the adolescent. Montessori stated and Woodside tries to uphold that, "We seek to sow life in the child rather than the theories, to help him in his growth, mental and emotional, as well as physical and for that we must offer grand and lofty ideas to the human world." Our trip to The Farm School will inspire and give students great practical life skills.

Youth Visits the United Nations -
Youth Visits the United Nations (YVUN) trip. The YVUN is a program that teaches young adolescents about the inner workings of the United Nations through presentations from United Nations employees and other Nongovernmental organizations.
