Surrounded by wooded hills, this pristine and picturesque town of 4500 residents is located just west of Stanford University in a green and gold valley astride the world-famous San Andreas Fault. The Town values its environmental and historic heritage, its excellent public schools and its economical Town government supported by a multitude of volunteers. An extensive trail system, scenic roads, open space and natural views contribute to one’s feeling of being in the country, as do architectural guidelines that stress “blending in.” Commercial activity is encouraged to the extent that it primarily meets needs of residents of the community. These factors have enabled the town to retain a rural ambiance reminiscent of earlier days.
The Town of Portola Valley has two public schools and two private schools within Town limits.
Grades K-3: Ormondale School
Grades 4-8: Corte Madera School
Grades 9-12: Woodside High School
Private Schools: Woodland School (PreK-8th), Woodside Priory (6th-12th)
