Letter: Remarkable year for Woodside High School

Original post made on Jun 13, 2012

In an era when there is a flight from public schools and constant criticism of the performance of public schools ("Waiting for Superman"), I would like to point out that Woodside High School has provided an educational atmosphere that many private schools would be proud to claim.

Bruce, you forgot to mention the 12 or so people heading off to Cal Poly, 7 among them going in for engineering :D

I, for one, have always agreed that some students do well at Woodside High and congratulations to these graduates for their significant achievement.

But what about the majority of students there? How well are they served?

I'd be very curious to find out what percentage of freshmen who entered Woodside High School back in September 2008 actually graduated in June 2012? Does anyone know? Is this data available?

That may be a better measure of a school's success than celebrating a handful of students being accepted into a "good" college.
