Our Mission

RCSD creates a safe and supportive, inspirational and rigorous, joyful and inclusive environment for all learners


The preschool program forms the foundation for later life learning in all domains of development, including socio-emotional, language, literacy, and mathematics.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

The TK class provides more opportunities for social-emotional and language development, including mathematics functions through interactive, hands-on activities, which helps students develop and build upon existing skills to be successful in kindergarten, and stimulating classroom centers, which focus on science, mathematics, writing, arts and crafts, community role play, etc.


Kindergarten is a time for students to get acclimated to school, make friends, and have fun learning while doing. Time in the classroom–and recess time–builds relationships, hones lifelong skills, and fosters a positive attitude toward learning. Fun hands-on enrichment activities in math and science, skill building in language arts, early digital literacy opportunities, and introductions to arts and music are provided to students as they learn the structures of the classroom.  

Gardens and Outdoor Classrooms

Schools throughout RCSD have various garden and outdoor learning initiatives supported by parent volunteers, community groups, outdoor education specialists, nonprofits, and partnerships with the California UC system.

After School Programs

RCSD works with a variety of public, grant-funded, and private partners to provide students and parents with expanded learning after the school bell rings. After-school programs are open every school day into the early evening, offering flexibility in each family’s schedule.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM)

It’s full STEAM ahead in Redwood City School District (RCSD) classrooms when Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics are interlaced into all areas of learning.
