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.
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.

That inventive spirit is just one the reasons Redwood City School District (RCSD) has been named one of just 14 Google for Education Reference Districts in the state.
