Principal's Message

Welcome to Redwood Shores Elementary School, home of the Seals! Redwood Shores provides a learning environment of both fun and rigor for over 400 students in preschool, transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, and all grades through 5th. Founded in 2010, Redwood Shores is a 2023 California Distinguised School, featuring dedicated, talented teachers who partner with supportive, collaborative parents to ensure that all students experience school success.

The 2023-2024 school year promises to be an exciting one, full of fun and innovation. My name is Matthew Nagle, this is my first year as the Redwood Shores Principal. I bring 18 years of experience as a principal, eight years as a TK-8th teacher, and three years in between as an assistant principal. All that experience tells me it is going to be a great year for students and staff alike.  Make sure you prepare your child for success by communicating with your child's teachers and keeping keeping up to date on all school emails, newsletters, and ParentSquare posts. Also, do not hesitate to say hi to me while I am doing my best to keep students safe during drop-off and pick-up.
