This year is our first year at school. Our daughter was enrolled to kindergarten class. Transition from preschool was very smooth and easy. Our daughter had no problems with adaptation. Every day she is excited of her school experience and waiting for the next lesson. Kids are free to seat on the carpet and play developing games and toys. Teacher knows the job and able to keep children's attention and interest in learning. At first sight, school is well equipped. And, what is the most important, here is a great enthusiastic community, many volunteers and after school activities.

I said below what a hard time we had a Fox. Today we went for our first day and it was Awesome. They did a remodel and landscaped, looks very nice.I had a good feeling after leaving and my kid was so happy at pick up, so I'm looking forward to a great year.

To the response below. Don't judge parents how have negative review to this school. Not everybody has a chance to volunteer and participate in school life. Parents who volunteer simply has time to do it and some don't. And it doesn't mean your child have to be left behind if you parents struggle to keep with need. We went from kindergarten through 5th grade and saw great teachers who really care and some who simply do nothing. This school deserved 3 stars.

At Fox, we have parents who are doer & parents who are complainers. If u take an active role in your child s education, u will get so much out of this school. This school is a hidden gem. Credit goes to the hard work parents do to offer free extracurricular activities for kids, either in a form of financial assistance and/or volunteer hrs. Teachers have a leg up at Fox b/c they have parents that make their job easier by essentially being their unpaid teacher s assistants. These parents are the heart & soul of this school. You don t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that teachers are more responsive to these parents who support them. You can call it favoritism but I say they earn that right. Just think from the Teacher s perspective if all u do is complain & think they s/b able to wave a magic wand. How would u conduct yourself in that situation? The principle is great too. Always found him to follow through on his words. To the parent who said her son s classroom was disgusting, sorry but it s not that difficult to make a fuss. Don t pat yourself on the back by saying u were the first to complain. Words are easy but hard work makes a lasting impression.

As with any organization, there's a percentage of team members who are highly-motivated and inspiring and who try to propel the students above the CA average. There's also a perecentage of teachers who are simply doing their job - teaching the standards - which is what some parents want. Depending on your objectives (academically rigorous vs. standard), the teacher you get, and the abilities of your student, your experience will vary. We expect above-average academics given the demographic of the school and our experience has been generally good so far. Could it be better? Sure, there's lots of room for improvement in every California school. On the upside, this school is a gem in lot ways...boutique size, good school community of talented and involved parents, generally strong test scores, school-wide activities give children many opportunities to be exposed to different areas of learning: Science (Science Fair), Performing Arts (Foxtravaganza), Gardening, Recycling, Music programs, Art, Read-a-Thon, and more. Principal may not be a powerhouse administrator, but he does interact well to the students and he tries to teach them concepts like responsibility, kindness, and respect.

I found the leadership unresponsive except to a certain few families. My child's teacher spent far too much time texting during class hours and showed favoritism to certain students while being blatantly rude to others, especially special needs children. The curriculum was not age appropriate. The level of preparation for the Star test via sample tests was tantamount to cheating. The Star test is supposed to be a benchmark test not one in which children spend weeks doing sample tests in preparation.

Fox school is a wonderful public school. I have two children who attend there, and so far they have both had a great experience. The teachers they have had are extremely dedicated. The huge amount of parent involvement and active PTA have made many programs available to the students that would otherwise not be available because of budget concerns (e.g., art, dance and music classes, tutoring). One of my children does have special needs, and unlike some of the other reviewers, my experience has been very positive. I have not had to fight to get services for my child and have felt that the school team wans to ensure her success.

We have a second grader and a kindergartener. The education offered by this school is excellent. Very involved parents also round out the exta-curricular activities - gardening, dance, and science. I highly recommend anyone moving to the Belmont area to go to Fox.

Sadly, Fox has gone downhill in the past few years that our kids have been there. Some of the teachers are strong, but there is only so much they can do when the classes have grown so big. Sadly, I don't think things will get much better. The community will weaken due to the move away from school boundaries. Those in Hallmark and Skymont should be fine, but those down the hill will be scattered between the expanded Nesbit and perhaps the other schools. The planned expansion will take away much of our lovely fields. Chris M. is very personable, but I wish he were more aggressive in advocating for Fox at the District level and pushing out many of the teachers that have been there for 30+ years and lack zip. The aftercare (aka Calamity Corner) is horrific.

If you have a preschool child w/special needs and have to deal w/the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District, do NOT enroll your child in Fox's morning special day class. The teacher lacks integrity-she says one thing and does another. She will smile in your face and reassure you that your child is in good hands but it's not true. Friends of ours sent their child to this program and had the most negative experience with this teacher. If we experienced what they experienced, we would have pulled our child out also. This teacher showed a lack of concern for their child's health/well-being and showed a lack of respect/consideration for the child's parents' concerns. Instead of apologizing to these parents, she defended/justified her actions-unbelievable! The worst part is that when these parents expressed their concerns w/the Director of Special Educ, this director defended/justified this teacher's behavior! The director made patronizing remarks to the parents such as, "I'm sorry that you feel that way but WE FEEL...blah, blah, blah". Basically, she didn't care how the parents felt and had no concern for "their concerns"-b/c of this, we are not sending our child there either.

This is a really good school with dedicated teachers. The PTA is very active and the parents are very involved. They have a garden that was just built with the help of parents. My child is new to the school and I have been very impressed with the warm welcome! I would highly reccomend it.

Positives: -Good teachers and small class sizes. -Excellent PTA. Highly educated and involved parents. There is a very large group of parents who do a tremendous amount of volunteer work on a weekly basis. -Nice, safe campus with wonderful play structures, playing fields, lots of fresh air and open space. -DIverse student body economically and racially. -Organic hot lunch program and milk program. -For the most part, well behaved students. -Don't have to pay tuition. Need to work on: -Not academically rigorous. Doesn't prepare students well for middle school. -Very little personal attention for the students. -There are so many holidays and vacations the students are barely in school. -Every Wednesday is a half day!!!! That is a joke. No wonder we are falling behind every country. For a public school in CA Fox is probably as good as it gets. However, if you can afford it I would highly recommend looking elsewhere...

Fox is not a school for any child with learning differences. The teachers and principle do not want to be bothered with any student that does not fit the mold of the perfect student!!

I have had two children go through their entire elementary education at Fox School. Many of the teachers care a great deal about the children and are highly self motivated. Some are not stimulating. I guess that's the nature of any school. California schools are in poor financial shape..which is partially why programs are limited for advanced achievement. In a perfect world, there would be more programs for rewarding excellence, rather than just meeting the state standard. The campus is wonderful and gives them a great opportunity to play with other children in a comfortable, safe setting. The principal cares about the children and most importantly, the children love him and trust him. The PTA is very active and strong. The aides are outstanding. We've had a good experience at Fox.

I feel that Fox is the best elementary school in the area. It has an excellent staff who strives to give the children the best possible learning environment. My children have had teachers who have always gone beyond the state standards from learning about classical music and their composers, to literature, to artists and their work. They have gone on field trips that have related directly to what has been taught in the classroom. It has a beautiful campus with a lot of room to run and play. It has a wonderful support from parents whether the are working parents, single parents, or stay at home parents. There is something that any type of parent can be involved. Most importantly, there is a wonderful staff of teachers, aides, and specialty teachers. The principal is friendly, approachable, and really enjoys being around the children. I would recommend Fox School to anyone.

I have had two children attend Fox with the youngest just leaving. Some of the teachers were very supportive of my child but the school definitely lacks leadership. The Principal sets no clear direction for the school with a handful of teachers guiding the school's direction. There appear to be conflicts among the teacher's themselves and no sign of mutual respect. There has been focus given to students on the low end of the spectrum but not much attention paid to the high achievers. There is a wonderful music program which benefited both of my children.

While many of the teachers are compassionate and involved, there are some teachers who do the bare minimum. Principal is ineffectual and promotes a high level of favoritism. He does not follow through at many different levels. Thank God for the school secretary, who basically runs the school. Elistist and exclusionary, there is a a lot of pressure to contribute an excessive amount of time and money - working class families and single moms need not apply. However, my son had very good experiences in his first three years at the school - we were lucky to be assigned great teachers. If your child is falling behind and does not qualify for state run special ed, you are basically on your own to figure out how to afford special tutoring help.

While the test score is improving and pretty impressive, Fox seems to pay attention to just educating kids to 'good enough' level -- middle of the bell curve. For kids that are on either end of spectrum, be it academic / intellectual or social / behavioral, the teachers show no effort of adjusting to the needs of the two ends of the curve. After we raised the issues to the principal, there's no correction effort done. What's the point for feedback if no action will be taken?

Posted January 3, 2007

I agree with all of the comments. My son started here in kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade. He is getting all-plus extra help that he needs to succeed. I myself went to this school grades 1 through 6 and it was definitely my favorite school. I started music in 5th grade at Fox, and continued through high school. This played another important role in my schooling. Fox School laid a good foundation for my education. I am proud to have my son attending Fox School. I highly recommend Fox School to anyone who is looking for a school that really cares.

This is a great elementary school. It has good music program. It do lots of field trips where students gain hands on knowlegde about specific topic that they are talking about in their class. It also involve students in stage performance where students perform in Notredam Theatre in front of big audience. This is very important for a student because they gain more self confidence. Besides that the school also do small stage shows on the site where the parents and friends are invited. The parents are involved in every step of the way. The school always ask for parent inputif there's any issue need to be resolved. The principal also has great communication with parents and he always make parents very welcome. The teachers are also very experience and work together with the parents to overcome any issue a child is having. I would highly recommend this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
