The Woodland Hills High School offers a free preschool program through its Child Development Program. Parents of children who are 3-5 years old and live within the Woodland Hills School District are invited to register their children. The program is offered three days per week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for eight weeks for 2 separate sessions.
Are you a parent of a 7th or 8th grade student? Does your son or daughter enjoy art? Crafts? Science? Drumming? Cooking? Minecraft? Hands-on science projects? If so, the Prime Time STEAM Club offers all of these activities and more! We are currently registering students for the 2019/2020 school year.
