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!
