This is a wonderful community school! Nestled on the outskirts of tiny Montara, the school is surrounded by protected land and has a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean from the playground. The teachers are engaged, intelligent, communicative and creative. It struggles with the same issues that all California public schools do. Not enough funds to be all that it could be, but the PTO is so involved that they make up for so much. Check out Ocean's Week, Continent Day, Shakespeare Plays, Jog A thon, etc. Love our school!

Not impressed. Suffered for years at this school while they gimped along with no principal and an "onsight facilitator." While it was the district to blame for cutbacks, who runs a school with no principal? Great parent involvement, though. They basically run the school and have for years.

I have a son entering 4th grade and daughter entering 1st grade. They absolutely LOVE FV and have thus far had a positive academic and social experience. Despite the financial struggles this school district has faced, this community of parents and teachers have really stepped up to the plate and maintained a quality education.

Wonderful school, beautiful location overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in the shadow of Montara Mountain, surrounded by open space and farms. My children have been very fortunate to attend this community school with their friends and neighbors. Children with diverse backgrounds and abilities learn together and play together. Experienced and caring teachers provide challenging, individualized education. The principal oversees the school, with a Site Director handling day to day operations - a new model this year that is working. Parent donations and many dedicated volunteers provide academic and enrichment programs, including hands-on science classes, PE, music, art, school garden, and special events like Oceans Week, Continent Day, literature clubs and so much more. In this era of cuts and neglect, Farallone View flourishes and thrives.

I have had children at FV for the past 6 years, and feel so grateful to have such a wonderful community school in our neighborhood. The teachers here are excellent and fully committed. My oldest child is very bright and his teachers have kept him challenged. The parents from all parts of our community are involved, and through donations of both time and money make sure we have enrichment activities like lit clubs, art, music, oceans week, a talent show, and gardening (HEAL), hip hop dance. The assistant superintendent is acting part-time principal and provides great guidance and leadership. Our site director is on campus everyday to provide consistency and day to day oversight. Finally, we have the benefit of the Cabrillo Education Foundation raising money for an endowment to support all of the schools in the district into perpetuity. Next year and for every year to come, we and the other schools in the district will be the direct beneficiary of that fantastic work. I give the school four stars only because it is forced to do a lot with so little money from the state. When CA gets their act together and fully funds our schools again there will be no stopping FV.

What a fantastic school. Both my children have gone through this school, and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Teachers: Excellent & committed staff-totally inclusive of parents. Most teachers have project based learning intermingled with traditional teaching methods.Topics I've seen & experienced are ocean & environmental based themes, theatrical performance (Shakespeare, plays), and others. Principal: We have a part time principal to manage the teaching staff, and a Site director to manage the day to day of students and staff. This is a new format for the school, put in just this year-it seems to be moving in the right direction.PTO:Parents are heavily involved in the school.Weekly communication blasts go out, google discussion groups, facebook have been set up to get the word out on events.The PTO funds the majority of the Enrichment activities at the school, providing the following programs for all K-5 students: weekly music, weekly science (FOSS), monthly Art-in-Action, Gardening (HEAL) for 2-3, Librarian,Classroom Aides for all 4-5 classes, Clerical support for Teachers, plus a host of community events (Oceans Week,Holiday Bazaar,Jogathon,Talent Show,Auction, Art Show).

As a former teacher, I am appalled by the low quality of this school. Parents should be able to talk to the principal at anytime about my concerns. I couldn't even tell you what she looks like. Why? She doesn't even office at this school! It has taken several visits and phone calls and I still haven't talked to this principal. You can talk to other people, but there is no leadership and the students know it. The behavior problems are severe and the discipline policy is non-existent. Please consider the "positive" reviews. They are several years old and obviously much has changed in that amount of time. Budget cuts, staffing changes, etc.

Great community, parent involvement, solid leadership and teachers. Excellent communication with all staff. We fully endorse Farallone View!

Though in a beautiful location, this school suffers tremendously from a lack of parent participation due to half the population being bussed in, so the parents do not help. Academics are taught at the lowest common denominator due to high illiteracy and low language comprehension rates. Student behavior is frightening, there are virtually no science or art classes (maybe once in a great while) Disney movies and other videos used a lot in classrooms and for indoor lunches. Ridiculous. The teachers are all wonderful, they are just working in impossible conditions. In my experience, it is a depressing place for a child to spend the day.

The school has a spectacular vista, overlooking the Pacific and its namesake islands. It is an average to below average school in terms of academics, cleanliness, playground safety and parent involvement. I would estimate that 10-15 percent of parents provide virtually all of the volunteer time at the school. There are a number of very dedicated teachers, but they struggle in a school with no money. I am continually impressed with how hard my child's teacher works--despite using her own money to buy supplies and even food for her students.

The greatest asset this small school has is the degree of parent involvement and the openess of the entire staff in allowing parents to be part of the community and be active participants in the education process. The teachers are all extremely dedicated, hard working, and approachable and so is the rest of the administrative staff. The school is the center of a number of local community activities and voluntering allowing the students to enjoy music, sports, arts, and extra curricular science programs.

The physical environment of Farallone view is beautiful. The entire kindergarten teaching staff is unsurpassed. The following grades are strong, but lack inspiration. The principal is very involved with the student body. There is a high level of parent involvement. There is little to no funding for the GATE program. A fulltime librarian and upper grade class aides are funded by the Education Fund & PTA efforts. Low population has caused disproportionate per student funding compared to other San Mateo County school districts. Overall, Farallone View is a wonderful learning environment located in a rural, bedroom community, lacking in funding, but maintaining and or exceeding standards and has continues to build on the future.

Both of my children have gone to Farallone view and my smallest will start next year. We've found the school to be excellent, the teachers caring and involved, and Mr. Bachichi is fantastic. Teachers of note - Mrs Balciunas in K is outstanding for the little ones, expecially in reading. Ms. Parker has a great relationship with her kids and conducts a publishing school each year. The cream of the crop is Mrs. Furst - tough but fair and give personalized attention to each student despite having 30+ in her class. She excells at language arts and has crative projects for the kids each quarter. She makes a lifelong impression on the children that carries them to middle school. The only issue is class size, but with parent involvement - it's getting better.

As a kindergarten parent I am impressed on a daily basis with Farallone View. There is great emphasis on reading and writing. The teachers (especially my childs) are wonderful, compassionate and have such a great teaching style.

My boys are having a great experience at Farallone View Elementary School. The quality exceeds that of my own education in the nationally number one ranked Cupertino School District in the 60's and 70's. The community and parents are very active in fund raising to eliminate any gaps and add innovative programs. The Ed Fund is a parent-teacher fund raising effort that raises community awareness of the school while funding teacher's aids in the classroom thus keeping student-teacher ratios much lower than the published ratio. My wife and I are professionals and value the quality of our boy's education very highly - we could easily afford private schools. Our boys are fortunate to be in a public school where they are happy and thriving.

We've been very pleased with the quality and dedication of the teachers here. There is a very high rate of parental participation. The art program is good; however we have put our boys into a separately funded music class as we felt there was not ample time for music education. This is largely a budgetary problem and no fault of this excellent public school.

Frankly, considering a house in Montara costs around 700.000.00 This school has plenty of challenges. Montara is a very mixed place for such a beautiful and costly location. I believe that a lot of the families here of means have put there kids in private schools - reducing the performance base. As a parent with children at the school - I will do my best to help the school. But there are many families under pressure here - and it will not be easy to do.

Two of my children have excelled at Farallone View Elementary School. They are now in the 6th and 10th grades at other schools- middle and high school. I am pleased with Farallone's holistic environment, the individual and differentiated instructional approach, and the data-driven accountability models. The math and language arts curriculum are substantive, but are also creative and child-centric. This is not solely a school driven by the testing frenzy. Parents have the opportunity to participate in the classroom in a plethora of ways- literacy circles, a very active PTA, Ed Fund and Site Countil- to a variety of fundraisers, book fairs, social gatherings. The Principal, Mike Bachicha is fair; a good listener; and a good leader.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
