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.

Some of the yard staff members make everyones day by saying hi and personally knowing you. This is very rare at this school.

Amount of homework: Too much

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 grit: Disagree

The only persistence this school puts in its students is the persistence to get out. They do not motivate kids to have a life long love of learning as much as to fit in to the normal group in my 9 year experience.

You cannot develop respect in a school where the staff do not respect the students. People are shunned for being different in Silicon valley out of all places. Silicon Valley was created by different, unorthodox people!

The kids at this school are known to be spoiled and be aloof to anyone with struggles. Every teacher I have had favors popular kids with known parent over kids with academic ability and good effort.

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.
