Public education in the Woodland area is provided by the Woodland Joint Unified School District (WJUSD) from kindergarten through high school. The WJUSD embraces the standards and accountability focus of the school improvement efforts of California and the nation. WJUSD is proud of its students’ successes in exemplary programs that include academic decathlon, agriculture, art, athletics, drama, home/health services, music, student leadership and student publications. These programs have received regional, state and national recognition.
The Chamber’s Business Education Committee is actively promoting the Yolo Youth Council’s "Work Ready Certificate" program. High school students must demonstrate many work-ready skills and Woodland businesses are encouraged to expect entry-level local job applicants to present their certificates as a desired item in the application process.
WJUSD’s Adult School provides continuing education through a wide offering of courses designed to meet the needs of students preparing to complete a four-year college education or for students needing certification or career skills programs.
