Woodside High School Presentation
Transcript of Woodside High School Presentation
Sequoia Union High School District
Woodside's course completion rate for UC/CSU schools increased from 2006-2009 (42.6% to 53.8%)
From 2008-2009, Woodside's rate of post high school education attendance (any form of continuing education) exceeded district and state average
From 2008-2009, the number of Woodside graduates attending four-year schools exceeded the number attending two-year community colleges (97 vs. 94 students).
Recap: Troubling Data
Increase of students on free/reduced lunch
Number of students taking PSAT/SAT/ACT is low (and scores aren't great).
Increase in AP pass rate, but not great compared to district pass rate
UC/CSU course completion rates above the state average, but most recently lower than district
Actual college enrollment is low and decreasing
Woodside High School appears to be simply "getting students through high school"
There seems to be a low indication of "college bound culture."
Of students that are eligible to attend UC/CSU schools, enrollment is low
Community college enrollment is low
Areas for Improvement & Overall Goals
Keep SAT scores from their steady decline & increase scores
