Welcome to Northwood Elementary School
Home of the Bears!One of the greatest gifts adults can give
to their offspring and to their society
is to read to children.
- Carl Sagan
Located in northeast corner of San Jose, California, Northwood Elementary School is enriched by a diverse population of students, staff, and community. Northwood School offers a rich academic curriculum to a range of students from pre-K to fifth grade. Preparing students to acquire the academic and social skills necessary for success in the 21st century is central to our work. The Northwood School Staff work collaboratively to provide a safe, nurturing environment where student learning and achievement are the focus. The school staff look forward to the new school year and working to provide our students with the lifelong learning skills necessary for academic success.
Northwood school is fortunate to have a parent community that actively supports the academic and enrichment programs at the school. Members of the PTA Organization plan and volunteer for many school activities. The School Site Council and the English Learner Advisory Committee meet to oversee the discretionary budget and implementation of school programs. Parent volunteers also assist with many classroom activities, including chaperoning on field trips. Members of the Northwood Neighborhood Association actively participate in school events as well.
Students, staff, and community members are proud to be associated with Northwood School.
We are... the bears!
Education is for improving the lives of others
and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.
