There needs to be more support for students who learn at a different pace and those who don't work well with how the curriculum is structured. It would be nice to have more onsite tutors available. Communication from teachers/staff could be improved as well. Homework packets are sometimes confusing. Overall, my child seems to be happy at school, but I'm not sure if he's getting all the attention he needs.

I love the support and attention my child receives at Tobias. Principal Harris and his entire staff of teachers communicate so well to parent's about wanting to see your child succeed! The sense of community at this school is also amazing. If you are looking into this school for your child, you cannot go wrong at Tobias!

Tobias is an AMAZING school. My daughter has been there since kindergarten and has really thrived there. The community and PTA is tight knit and the teachers are very involved. I'm very fortunate to have gotten my daughter into Tobias and I look forward to her completing her Elementary education here.

Tobias is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff are phenomenal in so many ways. They embody the true definition of "dedication to the students and the goal of higher learning" -not just in academics, but in life lessons as well. The PTA is a strong presence as well. We are fortunate to live within its boundaries so that my daughter can attend.

We were very apprehensive about starting school two years ago. Daly City schools seemed to be a little daunting. Our experience at Tobias has been excellent! We have had two wonderful teachers. My son has enjoyed this school and the learning atmosphere.

Tobias is a great school. The lay out lends to a close knot community feel. The teachers are professional and are always available for questions. The new principal has been a great addition. He has set a clear focus for the students and teachers. He seems to prioritize student achievement and a major drive for Tobias. We are very happy here.

I do agree that transfers should be kept to a minimum through a more rigorous screening program like other exceptional schools. The teachers are great, the Eagle Olympics is a wonderful event. More attention needs to be paid to the different range of students such as slow learners, average students as well as nurturing exceptional students.

Great school. Very nice building layout providing safe environment. Committed staff. Students get great education although there are troublesome students transferring in from other neighborhoods; these students distract and disrupt classroom environment. Not much parental involvement. Despite PTA trying to get more parents involved in activities, it is always the same dozen parents doing everything.

Of the those schools my wife and me have researched we have found for our child a public school with a superior staff of educators and high ranks. The school is a little outdated, but these are things that should bare little consideration, but should be noted. What is important is that my child has learned and excelled at M.J. Tobias. They have regular reading assignments, the children are rewarded for their efforts, and their is afterschool care with tutors to assist in homework assignments. Options - such as the 'choice menu' gives my child a chance to try new things and enhances her diet. Parents are invited to attend lunch with their children if they wish. All in all this school is tops in my books. I only wish there was more funding available for our school(s) to provide additional extra curricular activities. Top grades for M.J. Tobias

This school is the best in the district. But the the kids need longer recess. The kids need more play time. They also need better lunches and a sports team. The school should take more pride in their students.

Always striving to be better, for more community involvement, great attention and care given to at-risk students. Intelligent, caring and totally involved leadership. Active PTA, needs more parental involvement. Some really superior teachers, especially in lower levels. Good reading programs, after-school homework help, Conveniently situated on a lovely site; like all schools, needs updating and upgrading. Could use a gymnasium and an auditorium. Highly recommended. (Parental involvement means better grades, more highly motivated students.)
