About Us

The Kaiser Woodland Schools Foundation supports interactive, cutting-edge Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) instruction for the students at Kaiser and Woodland elementary schools.

The Foundation’s supplementary science programming is made possible by generous community support: parents, teachers, administrators, business leaders, private grants, and science advocates. Learn what you can do to get involved.

KWSF Mission

The Kaiser Woodland Schools Foundation is an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Foundation exists to identify opportunities to enhance student achievement at the Kaiser and Woodland Elementary Schools. The Foundation is committed to securing the resources necessary to enhance our student’s learning experience and academic achievement.


KWSF launched a new “Introduction to STEM” – science, technology, engineering, and math – block of instruction for all TK through 2nd-grade students. The students enjoy early exposure to topics such as engineering, coding, and robotics. Woodland is the only elementary school in the Newport-Mesa Unified school district to provide early STEM instruction with a designated STEM instructor to these grade levels.


In 2014-2015, the Foundation launched a project-based engineering curriculum for all 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Kaiser is the only elementary school in the Newport-Mesa Unified school district to provide this type of engineering curriculum to its students. The program builds upon Kaiser’s excellent existing lab-based science program, a program supported by the Foundation in the past and now provided by the District.

Beyond STEM instruction, the Foundation’s funds and resources are used to support faculty enrichment, facilities improvements, cutting-edge technology for state of the art teaching, and targeted program enhancements identified by the school principals.

The Foundation works in cooperation with the PFO to provide additional resources for improvements to the educational environment.
