Letter: Remarkable year for Woodside High School

I, for one, have always agreed that some students do well at Woodside High and congratulations to these graduates for their significant achievement.

But what about the majority of students there? How well are they served?

I'd be very curious to find out what percentage of freshmen who entered Woodside High School back in September 2008 actually graduated in June 2012? Does anyone know? Is this data available?

That may be a better measure of a school's success than celebrating a handful of students being accepted into a "good" college.
