Loves to send homework home, the teachers are only interested in saving their jobs. A lot bullying in school and no plan to stop from teh teachers.All I can say is horrible, horrible and horrible




- a student
From being a student at this school, all I can say is that this very old school. The environment is very intellectually stifling and generic. They seriously need to star hiring teachers that are passionate about what they do instead of people who are just moving cattle along. This school recently got the blue ribbon award for no reason. It pales in comparison to Las Lomitas. I strongly advise you find one of the other schools in the area for your children.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a student
Homework is the bulk of all of the work at this school. Many students feel overworked because of all the homework and stay up extremely late unnecessarily. They should cut down the homework and make it so it excites you for a new day at school.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a student
The goal of this school is to work students to the limit and target every mistake instead of what students do correctly

La Entrada has been an excellent school for my daughter Bella (7 grade). We moved from Chicago a year ago and everybody was so welcoming and helpful. My daughter was challenged in Math, so the school (Mr. Ortola, math teacher) inmediately designed a peer tutor for her. Mr. Costello also helped her a lot. All teachers were sensitive that She was new and everybody helped making a smooth transition for her. i would recommend this school to any parent who is looking for great quality teachers and excellence.

I am a seventh grader at La Entrada. La Entrada is a great school because each teacher really cares about his/her students. All of the teachers are truly amazing at what they do. La Entrada also has some very special courses like black and white photography including a darkroom to develop photos in, which most schools don't have. Also, every single 6-8 student has their very own iPad, along with tech support to help them if they need. There are also two gardens where students can grow many different plants. The science program is amazing. Today in class, we had the opportunity to dissect worms. We have also done many assignments on different creatures' biology. The teachers really go deeper than just giving the answers to questions- they make us think critically and go beyond the information in the textbooks. To sum up, La Entrada is a gem as far as middle schools go.

Dedicated to children's learning, health and safety. THe best school I have ever experienced as parent.

Fine, but not great like its sister school Las Lomitas. If only La Entrada could learn from Las Lomitas then it could also be a wonderful school. It is a missed opportunity.



- a parent
The school is not bad, it is just a little old fashioned and bit limited in creativity. The motto here is work for the sake of work. Learning is mainly memorizing the study guides that the teacher gives you which need to be regurgitated on the test verbatim. If your child is truly gifted in an area then they might find the environment here rather stifling. It is surprising to find such a rigid and old fashion environment in the heart of Silicon Valley which values the innovative and creative.
