My child has been at Gardner Bullis for four years and loves the school. Each past teacher still knows and interacts with my child who is doing very well academically. Principal Kinnaman has made some substantial improvements to the school over the two years she has been principal. And, she's not done yet...as the school keeps getting better an better with her leadership. As an LASD school, it offers the same curriculum and extras as the other elementary schools. The students at this school have a strong interest in STEM, so after school programs and lunch time activities in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science are very popular with the students. There is a strong interest by students in giving back and charitable activities through buddies, project cornerstone, green team, and Be the Change Club. Despite being a small population, students do well in competitions outside of school in mathematics, essay writing, science, and the LASD Film Fest. Popular school-wide events are the Talent Show, STEM EXPO, Walkathon, Multicultural Fair, Costume Parade, Book Fair, STEM Lunch Club, after school enrichment, Fun Run, and Field Day.

A beautiful campus with the most affluent families in the district, it has suffered from leadership issues over the last few years and we have seen uneven teacher quality. It has a strong PTA. Our son liked this school, but we felt two of his teachers were underwhelming. We have since transferred to BCS and are very pleased we did so. Still, Gardner Bullis is a good school and a fine example of why people move to Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.

Gardner Bullis School is a fabulous place of learning for the neighborhood children, and is a central part of the Los Altos Hills community. The majority of the teachers have been there since it re-opened (or they've come from another LASD school) and all of them have proved that they care about teaching the kids to love learning. Result: well-rounded, interesting kids. Proud Grizzly Family!

I have two children at Gardner Bullis and can't say enough wonderful things about this public school. The teachers are motivated, innovative and experienced. The school is an amazing community of parents, kids, teachers and administrators where your child (and you) will be known by name to everyone on campus. I especially love the focus on Project Cornerstone, an anti-bullying/whole-child program that the entire school supports. Gardner Bullis has a whole range of programs to nurture my children - PE and noontime adult-led activities, music/drama/art, and gardening to learn about nutrition and science. In addition, the school integrates technology into each classroom and has before and afterschool classes to allow families to choose to supplement their education through Mandarin, Spanish, chess, design, chorus, creative writing, and math. Can you tell how much I love this school?!

We love it here! We've been made to feel very welcome by the parent and teach community, and greatly appreciate all of the excellent teachers here, many of whom have been teaching for many years and so are very experienced! There are numerous programs that my children enjoy and there is a great after-school program as well.

This school is now in its second year and going strong. It has a great parent community that is supportive both of strong academics and of social/emotional development. It is very small which contributes to a family feel.
