My son will be entering TK this coming year and I find myself not knowing were to put him in school. I wish that more recent comments were available about this school in helping me determine were I should enroll him. The principle at alameda was nice, and the school was clean.

The education the students receive is top rate. The teachers work together in each grade level to make sure everyone in on track. The only problem I have is the lack of communication and involvement with parents. The PTA is a group of 5 people who run extensive fundraiser throughout the year- no meeting are announced. Extra curricular activities are non existing. The children are expected to learn CA standards and there is no room for anything else.

This school is the greatest. I have never know a school to put so much into both there student and parents. We had to do homework with the kids which was turned in every Friday. I feel as a mother that education starts at home and so does Alameda. My child is going into first grade and is able to read at a 4th grade level. Ms Mort you are the greatest gift (Thank you). Ms. Martin please keep hiring the best teachers. So far so good. I am a proud mother of a Alameda Tiger. Thank you so very much. Katherine Macias-Sanchez
