Excellent school, teachers, and administration. Gorgeous campus and active community. A K-8 public school is fairly rare in the Bay Area and allows for some personalized and unique learning opportunities for children and lots of interaction with teachers and staff- and a super-involved parent community. Diversity and inclusion are a part of the curriculum and culture both in and out of the classroom. Innovation and new ideas are embraced by teachers and administration at this award winning school.

This school is behind the times in many ways. It does a very poor job with inclusion and diversity, rules and structure and is not up to date on the latest teaching methods in K-8 education. It has some good teachers. The principal is incompetent. We cannot recommend this school, as it has no school district to provide oversight of an incompetent principal.
