Our School


Henry Ford Elementary School is a gem of the Redwood City School District located in the heart of the Woodside Plaza neighborhood. As one of the rare K-5 neighborhood schools in the district, we focus on developing the academic, social, and emotional skills of primary grade students. Mustangs learn what it takes to succeed at Henry Ford School, and beyond!

 Additional Resources through RCSD


All students have the option of eating school meals for free, regardless of their family's economic need.   To ensure RCSD schools continue to receive necessary funding, RCSD needs families to fill out a short survey (instead of the Free or Reduced-Price Meal application, which has been used in the past).  

Click here to read more and connect to the survey.  Deadline: Sept 30, 2021


Digital Flyers through Peachjar -- information about after school classes and groups, COVID testing, RCSD meals, and so much more

Thank you to Principal Knopf and all the teachers for an informative Back to School Night!



Open House




Watch your child proudly show off all they have accomplished during the year. Chat with your teacher and check out the other classrooms, including the next grade up. See the special Art in Action exhibit in the MUR (aka cafeteria), showcasing the artistic talents of all of our students.

Reach a child. Touch a Family. Build a community.


Healthy Cities Tutoring's community of volunteers, who range in age from 14-96, provide one-on-one tutoring and mentoring to students for 30-45 minutes per week to improve their academic performance, engagement in learning, and self-esteem.


This year with distance learning we are seeking volunteers willing to be trained in tutoring a student remotely once a week. We expect the need to grow this year and hope you or someone you know will get involved in this rewarding volunteer experience. 


For more information to become a Healthy Cities tutor, visit https://healthycities.site/, and click VOLUNTEER to complete the online application or email info@healthycitiestutoring.org.
