Welcome to the Pinewood School website! Founded in 1959, Pinewood is an independent, non-profit, coeducational college-prep school. Located 1/2 mile apart in Los Altos, our K-2 campus enrolls a maximum of 125 students; our campus for grades 3-6 enrolls 175 students. Approximately 300 students in grades 7-12 attend our upper campus, located in Los Altos Hills.
Los Altos and Los Altos Hills are residential communities situated forty miles south of San Francisco. The majority of Pinewood students are from the Los Altos-Palo Alto area. However, a number of students commute from cities as far north as Hillsborough, and as far south as Santa Cruz.
We are committed to being a diverse and inclusive community. Pinewood School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation or disability, in accordance with existing state or federal law or regulations, in the administration of its admissions policies, school programs and activities, or employment practices. The School nurtures and values an environment in which a diverse population celebrates and respects the talents, perspectives, and opinions of each individual.
Our goal is to assist you in making the best decision regarding your child's education. It would be our pleasure to discuss with you the tremendous opportunities offered at Pinewood School.
