Our Mission

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

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. 

Technology Integration

It may be true that a world of information and answers are just a few clicks or a swipe of a finger away in most modern classrooms—but how to use technology to its full potential as a learning tool takes creativity and innovation from both teachers and students. 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.

Beyond School Rankings: A More Holistic Approach to School Ratings

"Parents bring their hopes and their fears about their child’s education to the decision about where to live ... Too often, parents rely on third-party rankings that don’t tell the whole story about a school.”

Differentiated Instruction

Through differentiation, each child can excel and grow using a more personalized plan based on assessments throughout the school year. Teachers can tailor content, environment, and process to provide a curriculum that works well for a student’s specific needs and learning style.
