Our Programs and Services
On any given day, Henry Ford School students are moving and exercising their bodies in physical education classes, learning ethics and kindness in our character education program, developing their artistic and creative skills in Art in Action and our music programs, and diving into new ideas and exciting stories through our well-stocked library or with Chromebooks and iPads. In addition to after-school activities such as art, chess, and sports, we have the REACH program from Redwood City Parks & Recreation that offers students after-school enrichment.
Our teachers are well trained and experienced in differentiating instruction so that all students have the knowledge and skills to reach their potential. Differentiated instruction involves providing students with individual avenues to learning (often in the same classroom) and acquiring content—processing, constructing, or making sense of ideas—so all students learn effectively and successfully, regardless of their differences.
Henry Ford School offers a variety of “Whole Child” Activities such as Art in Action Program for K-5 Grade, Music for Learning Program for 2-4 Grade, Music for Minors for Kindergarten sponsored by the PTA, Physical Education once a week for half hour sessions sponsored by the PTA. In addition, there are a variety of after school activities such as individual garden space for each class, service learning projects, active student government for 3-5 Grades, as well as the Conflict Managers Program for 4-5 grades, the Bridges to Safety program, and school wide recycling.
