The Redwood City School District serves students who speak over 35 languages and we are experts in language acquisition. Our teachers and staff work hard to make sure that all of our non-native speaking students achieve a level of proficiency equivalent to a native English speaker in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English.

Family Connections is a tuition-free parent participation program for low-income families, educating over 400 individuals each year at three sites in San Mateo County. Parents participate in preschool classes with their children, from newborn to five-years-old, in a unique program that provides education for not only their children but also themselves. Family Connections’ parents stay involved in their children’s education and as a result, their children are more prepared for Kindergarten and beyond.

More than 300 parents came out on March 18, 2014 to ask their elected officials to support bringing two new charter schools to Redwood City. After hearing the parents' stories, Rocketship and KIPP Bay Area Schools committed to submit petitions to the Redwood City School District and school board members Maria Diaz and Dennis McBride pledged to give the petitions a fair and honest review. San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) Superintendent Anne Campbell and Joe Ross and Joe Hsiao from the SMCOE board of trustees also expressed support for the parents and said they would give the petitions a fair hearing if they come to their board on appeal.
