About Us


Welcome to Frank E. Woodruff Elementary, a state of California Gold Ribbon and Title I Academic Achievement School.  Our goal is to support the Woodruff Community through high quality instruction and social-emotional support, with a focus on learning for all students. We are dedicated to ensuring that our students and staff are thriving in a safe and welcoming environment, and families are engaged and connected to our school community.


Our focus for the 2023-2024 are in the areas of academics, achievement and engagement as follows.

  • Through Tier 1 instruction and academic support, students can read and comprehend grade level texts across content areas.

  • Through targeted assistance and academic support, we will close the achievement gap in ELA for students in the following subgroups: English learners, students with disabilities, socio-economically disadvantaged, and African Americans. Additional assistance and academic support will be provided to our ASTI groups: African Americans and Students with Disabilities.

  • Students, staff, and family members feel that they are valued, safe and connected to our school community.

Wishing all the best,

Trang Nguyen, Ph.D.
