Henry Ford is a great school because it has a really positive atmosphere. I had really good teachers and I will never forget them. Henry Ford also prepared me for North Star.

I love teaching at Henry Ford! Our school has a warm and caring environment with dedicated teachers and active and supportive families. Teachers work together as a team to provide differentiated, hands on engaging activities that allow for deep understanding of the content. We want our students to love learning and feel confident that they can achieve anything. Our school has a strong sense of community with the best interests of the students at the forefront. I am proud of our school and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

Our family has been with Henry Ford for almost 10 years now. Henry Ford delivers academic excellence in core subjects and a wide range of enrichment programs including music, art, physical education, and more. The school embraces a collaborative learning approach that enables teachers to share ideas and best practices, resulting in improved outcomes in the classroom. More importantly, Henry Ford has created a warm and welcoming community where families come together, teachers are empowered, and children are inspired. We love this school and know that you will, too.

5th grade at Henry Ford is a rich experience for all of our children.  We provide  many hands on experiences including a workshop with TheatreWorks, Outdoor Ed, STEM at Levi Stadium, and field trips. Henry Ford provides many opportunities for 5th graders to become leaders of our caring school community as Conflict Managers, Recycling Coordinators, and Reading Buddies with lower grades.  We provide rigorous academic instruction and extensive enrichment in reading.  We are well known throughout the district for high test scores and successfully preparing our 5th graders for Middle School and beyond.  We love our Henry Ford community!

Every moment of the kindergarten day (from the first minute until the last second) is a moment to learn and an experience to be had.  We respect each other and our similarities and differences.  Our parent community is a huge component of our success and we welcome them into our classrooms to help make things run smoothly.  We want Kindergarteners at Henry Ford to leave at the end of the year LOVING learning and having the confidence that they are capable of anything if they just try their best and persevere through the hard parts.  We are a Kindergarten Team and every one of our individual students belongs to all of us.  We love what we do and who we work with. Not one of us would trade our jobs for anything anywhere else.

We go on fun field trips. I love the exciting events like Fall Fiesta and Halloween parade. My favorite subject is reading. My classmates are kind.

Henry Ford is our neighborhood school; we are so glad to have the campus and student families right here in Woodside Plaza. Classroom instruction is focused so there is minimal homework; leaving plenty of time for my son to learn by playing and participating in community & household activities. This is a K-5 school without the distractions of middle school; just little kids who treat each other with respect & kindness. Henry Ford has given him a strong academic foundation, social emotional skills, and solid friend network.
