Kaiser Woodland Schools Foundation



One of the primary objectives of the Kaiser Woodland Schools Foundation (KWSF) is to provide supplemental Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) instruction and enrichment to support and enhance the outstanding laboratory science education program that was started at Kaiser over 16 years ago. We know that former Kaiser students have garnered a love of science from the program and have gone on to study STEM related disciplines in college. We also know that STEM related jobs are high paying and that STEM workers are in high demand. KWSF has had success obtaining grants from individuals, private foundations and corporate sponsors. One of the things that they often want to know is what impact the program has on the choices of students as it relates to their future education and career choices.


Any NHHS student graduating in 2018 who attended Woodland and/or graduated from Kaiser Elementary School, and will be attending college in the fall with STEM discipline is eligible to submit an application.  Award recipient(s) will be asked to return to Kaiser to participate in a flag deck ceremony on May 10, 2017 to receive this award and will be recognized at the NHHS Awards Night to be held at the St. Andrews Presbyterian Church.
