New to school and got a shocker ... just didn't understand why the office staff down to the yard duty people at Chadbourne are so rude and full of attitude. Got my answer after meeting the Principle - leadership by (bad) example. Hope students will not pick up their negative attitudes.

My 1st grader totally enjoy the school : the physical layout, the student boy, the faculty and the staff. Chadbourne has a great reputation in the Bay Area. It is very strong academically with a very involved parent group. If you want your child to succeed and are willing to put in the time to work with your child, this is a great school to cultivate a young mind!

This school is officially the best school I've ever been to. It is very popular, it has awesome food, fun playground, and calming classrooms. Even I am so confident in learning everyday. What I would like to improve is is the best school in my whole life!. GO CHADBOURNE!

Joshua Chadbourne is a great school with a great staff. The teachers work very hard with the students as a class as well as on one on one basis to help develop and mould the child into a great and positive personality.

Very good. I love it. The staff is friendly. The teachers are great. The computers are good. They cut the Sacramento field trip.

We have faced very bad experience with the office staffs. Lot of attitudes being shown. I am not even sure how they are handling the kids of elementary. First of all the office staff really needs some training on how to talk to the parents, rude attitude towards the parents are not good. Also kids spend more time at the school than at home. So a rude or a attitude behavior shown by a staff is going to reflect on the student. Sorry for my comment being negative but if these comments can change the school enviornment, I would be the first person to be happy.

Chadbourne is a great elementary school. It has a balance of strong academics and a balanced program of music and art. Great principal and teachers. Strong parent support. Location is also desirable.

This school has way to much focus on academics and standardized tests. It lacks focus on extracurricular activities for the children. Most parents have to look for activities outside of the school. The teachers are accustomed to 'smart' kids so they are adept at working with them.

This school I am afraid to say has a poor principal with a good sense of leadership, the students are the ones who make this school good not the teachers

I have had several children attend Chadbourne. My son's experiences at Hopkins make me wish that Chadbourne was K-8. The teachers here are excellent and willing to work with you if your child needs help or accommodations. There is a nice selection of after school activities. In the classroom, there is generally a large number of parents willing to volunteer. Making it a unique experience for your child. I only wish that more parents were willing to volunteer for the non-classroom work. (This tends to be the same core group over and over.) Overall, a wonderful school and my daughter can't wait to start back next week.
