Graduates of Portola Valley's Corte Madera School go on to both public and private high schools. This year, 54 percent of the 71 graduating eighth-graders (38 students) are going on to Woodside High, Menlo-Atherton High, and Summit Charter in the Sequoia Union High School District. The other 33 students plan to attend various private schools -- Sacred Heart Prep, Menlo School, Woodside Priory School, St. Francis High, Castilleja, and Crystal Spring.
