Woodacre Schools

Across the Golden Gate Bridge, north of San Francisco, is Marin County, world renowned for its natural beauty. Nestled in the San Geronimo Valley, the small town of Woodacre offers the rural life — Marin style. With a golf course, riding stables, and a Buddhist meditation center nearby, Woodacre is an intriguing community to settle in. When you take a look at the public schools in Woodacre, you'll find the mix of educational philosophies to be as interesting as the community.

Woodacre Public Schools

Two public school districts provide educational services to students living in the San Geronimo Valley, including Woodacre. Lagunitas School District is the home district for the elementary and middle schools. Most high school students from Woodacre attend Sir Francis Drake High School in the Tamalpais Union High School District.

Lagunitas School District serves Woodacre, as well as the small towns of Forest Knolls, Lagunitas, and San Geronimo. There are two schools in the district. Although they are public schools, the elementary grades are not the traditional classrooms that are generally found throughout most of the state.

Tamalpais Union High School District provides secondary school education to students coming from ten elementary districts in Marin County, including the Lagunitas School District. It includes three comprehensive high schools, all of which have been designated as California Distinguished Schools, and two alternative schools. Most students from Woodacre attend Sir Francis Drake High School in neighboring San Anselmo.
