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!

Healthy Cities Tutoring


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.


Informational session on Wednesday, October 13

RSVP by registering on their website (right column here: https://healthycities.site/). You can read more on their flyer (Spanish).  If you can't make it, don't worry, there will be other opportunities!  All training videos are alas available on-line.  For now, tutoring opportunities will be held over Zoom, with the hope that by November, tutoring can be done in-person, at school.  



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.


Healthy Cities is also looking for a volunteer site coordinator at Henry Ford!  Help match students to teachers, to create long-lasting and successful relationships!
