Welcome to Woodland School, K-8th grades. Woodland School is located in Mariposa County, a rural community in an area which is noted for its variety of tourist attractions including ski slopes, gold rush history, hunting, fishing, horseback riding, boating, backpacking and Yosemite National Park. Woodland has gone from being a 1st-6th grade school in the 1950’s, to a K-6th, and has now evolved to a K-8th grade site. Our campus is spread out over an area of approximately 7 acres, with grass and beautiful oak trees interspersed throughout the campus. We are a Distinguished School and take pride in the education we offer to our students.
