In 1976, in a response to the call for holistic education, a group of parents responded by forming the Parents for Education Foundation, Inc. formed through the inspiration of St. Jose Maria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei and was patterned after the Formento School System in Spain. PAREF Woodrose School, Inc. was the first school established by Parents for Education Foundation (PAREF), a non-stock, non-profit organization of parents who want to be fully involved in providing their children a Christian Education. Woodrose School was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 9, 1979 by a group of parents and educators committed to provide the means to guarantee the total education and proper upbringing of their children. It is an exclusive educational institution for girls that provides pre-school, grade school and high school education. Woodrose also offers Development and Values Education and Adult Education Programs. Its main office is located in Acacia Avenue Extension, Ayala Alabang Village, Muntinlupa City. The school has 160 regular staff, 20 part-time, and nine (9) Board of Trustees members.
It was certified for five (5) years in May 28, 2002 and has applied for renewal of certification. On April 8, 2010, the school was granted a 5-year certification which ended on January 28, 2015.
