A great local school teaching twenty-first century problem solving skills and winning the Silicon Valley regional competitions. Go Woodland School!

It was so much fun! The 8th grade team, S.P.A.N.K.E.D. (Samik, Paige, Alexa, Nate, Kyle, Evan and Dominic) earned First place and will go onto the Global Championships next month! The 6th grade teams had a great time and we hope will compete again next year.
