Regarding the previous message; I didn't realize there were 2 pairs of twin girls in the 1st grade during the 2013-2014 school year. I have twin girls who are also in separate classes. They are both on their way to the 2nd grade. The school is very supportive. The school and the community is very tight-knit, which creates a wonderful environment for the students. Chani

My twin girls are 6.5 years old and they are in 1st grade in two separate classrooms and they love coming to class and the teachers and staff here are very supportive and the school have all sorts of greats program to help our children get better and advance to the next level. Friday flags are they're favorite where children get an award by earning Wow slip cards from their classroom. They're programs help my children sharpen their rough edges. Thank you Chabot!! Let's go tigers!!

This wonderful school not only teaches the basic subjects in class, but the faculty and staff teach good moral values, like respect and responsibility. It is a community-oriented environment.

Chabot Elementary is not only an incredible school and learning vehicle for my children, but it is also an amazing community to grow in. The strong parent presence in the classrooms and across the many activities differentiate it from the other schools in Castro Valley.

Fabulous teachers! My son had Ms. Shergill with help from Ms. Emanuell for K - what a dynamic team. Add to that parents who are active participants in their child's education and you can't go wrong.

Chabot Elementary School is the best for many, many reasons. We have great students, great parental support and tons of involvement in fundraising efforts, Parent Club activities, and classroom assistance. Our children are well rounded and show a great amount of respect to the school, its students, and parents. Our fundraisers are always well attended and we raise lots of money for many different, valuable programs such as playground equipment, an outside learning garden, an intervention science teacher, lighting for our plays, and a new sound system. We have wonderful teachers who care about our children and truly enjoy their jobs. I love the comraderie of all the parents and our weekly Friday Flag 'schoolwide' assembly is enjoyed by all. Our children are recognized for their hard work and accomplishments. And we are the only elementary school in the area who has a spring play program for all the 4th and 5th graders so our children are enriched with a drama/theater experience. I am so proud to be a part of such an awesome school! Chabot Rocks!!!

I love that Chabot opens up the minds of the kids that go there to all the possibilities in the world. They have a yearbook committee, student government, a musical, singing and band, etc. The children really get to experience many of their choices at such a young age.

This is our daughter's second year at Wilson and we are thrilled! The principle and teachers are so obviously invested in the success of the kids - and not just as students, but as 'people.' We truly feel like members of a community with a common cause - our kids.

We just moved to MA after attending Chabot for 6 years. We moved for several reasons and although the CA education system is facing subtantial financial issues with the budget etc. Chabot is definitely NOT one of the reasons we left. We will sorely miss the school, the staff and all our friends we met while being in, yes, the 'community' at Chabot. It takes many levels to make a school great and Chabot definitely has it figured out. No school is perfect, but they come pretty close!

EXCELLENT! This school is small enough to feel like a second family. So many activities and things to do. Our son enrolled mid year due to us moving and them not having room at the school by our house he ended up being placed in Chabot. We have decided to try and keep him here next year due to the fact he enjoyed going to school so much each day. He loved his teacher Ms. Fulton. He loved his science teacher and the science program. The parents are very much invloved and the children have such big school spirit! The playground situation is nice and the test scores speak for themselves. The parking is not very good. Cabot is a wonderful school and everyone from teachers, staff, and students have made our whole family feel very welcome.

A true community school that values not just test scores but also well-rounded education. The parents support the teachers and the teachers are top notch! We have been very pleased with the various programs and community-building events that this school offers.

The parents really make the school! Without the high degree of parent involvment and at home teaching, the overall lack of experience of the staff would show. Given that many of them are fairly new to teaching, the teachers do have a lot of energy and enthusiasm. They really care about their students, but do make a fair degree of 'newbie' mistakes. To be fair, the hiring practices of the district resulted in the overal newness of the teaching staff. The facilities are nice, especially after the remodel. The principal is present and caring to the students, but a little reserved towards the parents. My children love it there and that' counts for a lot!

Chabot's teachers are wonderful. They have a lovely grass area, and 2 playgrounds for the students to play in. Compared to other schools, like Castro Valley Elementary, who have one playground, and a grass area that is off limits (It can only be used for PE). The teachers interact with the students, and actually make school fun for them. On halloween they usually have a little carnival that goes on, which the students' parents and teachers help out to raise money for the school. It is a wonderful school all around.

Chabot Elementary School has dedicated and experienced staff as well as extremely involved parents whose purpose is to support teachers and to raise funds for the school's exclusive use that the district cannot provide. This combination resulted in an ethusiastic student body eager to go to school. My children love the school and look forward to attending class each day! Although preparing students to take statewide tests is taking priority over the curriculum in countless schools, the teachers at Chabot know better and offer students a full-bodied curriculum. Parking may be difficult due to limited space and the grass playground area is not flat, but those are minor compared to what the school offers.

Parents, teachers, children, and the community all work together like one big family. Every teacher on campus is wonderful.
