My son has progressed tremendously in Kindergarten, a big thanks to Mrs. Spence. His reading, writing and math skills all have improved so much since he started Kinder. In addition to academics, the class has been to several field trips including Mtn. View Performing Arts Center, Deer Hollow Farm and Sunnyvale Community Theater to watch plays. Overall, I am very satisfied with the school's academics and extra curricular activities.
My 4th grader and 1st grader have learned so much about community and the world around them, and I'm thankful to Landels for this.
My son's first grade teacher rocks. She cares about him deeply and is really individualizing his education.
Landels is a school made of people that care very deeply about creating a well rounded person.
As my daughter is about to finish 5th Grade at Landels I want to Thank all the staff involved in her 6 years at this school. She has had wonderful teachers who are hardworking, inspiring and dedicated to the education of every child in their care. They have individualized learning plans for each child. The community support is amazing with many dedicated parent volunteers. Landels is the best.
This is a neighborhood school with a diverse population of students. We have just received California distinguished school title. There is a great community spirit and the teaching staff are the best. Individualized plans are set for all students and reviewed regularly.
Landels provides students with a unique and wonderful learning environment that is responsive to individual needs. My children and their peers are thriving here!
Over the nine years my kids have attended Landels, its fabulous teaching staff has continued to wow us with their differentiated instruction skills and focus on making sure every kid achieves at his/her level.
Great Community, Excellent teachers and California Distinguished School
It is a real community of students, staff, teachers and parents.. All of which support each other. It is a California Distinished School..
I like landels very much. My son attended K level last year and he is really like that environment. His teacher, Mrs. Spence did a great job for this. She is always very very friendly, patient and knows how to let kids follow the rules. The stuff in office is really great and always available for any questions. The parents volunteer is also amazing. My son always came home told us who is come today and who will come tomorrow. My family really missing the experience there since we move out of Mountain View. Great school and has a lot of potentials. By parent X. Huang
I came from India in 2008. My daughter joined K level in this school. She was not familair with foreign land and language. But I must admitt we got wonderful teachers Ms. Anne and Ms.Lamaster. For elementary school, almost everybody around us was discussing on the API's and were opting for cupertino district schools and I was in dilemma whether to change home. But I remain in the same distrct and with same school and I am glad I did that as again she got wonderful teachers Ms. Parry and MS.Hicks. We love this school very much as it has right mix of academics and extra curricular activites. As this year API has increased..thanks to superb efforts of the staff and principle.
On January 2009 we arrived at Mountain View coming from Brazil. During six months our daughters studied at Landels (2th and 4 th grades, respectively). Both of them started their experience in the States without any english knowledge. Since the very beggining, all the staff dedicated to us what a couple of parents wish for their children: respect, education, citizenship and friendship. Actually, it was a must for our family to be exposed to this amazing and familiar elementary school. From our point of view and after returning to our country, Landels deserves grade 10 over 10. I wonder...if Landels is graded 7 over 10...the school graded 10 may be part of the garden of Eden (the Paradise). Analogies a part, we want to thanks Mrs. Paula and Patricia Galazzo and Mrs. Carmen Misel for all their help. Ricardo and Alessandra Stein in the name of Laura and Gabriela.
Our daughter has been at Landels for two years and she loves it. The teachers are are excellent and there is a strong community feeling at the school. Labdels has a strong academic emphasis but is not a pressure cooker like others in the Bay Area. My daughter has also enjoyed that fact that the school is also very diverse, with a good sprinkling of kids from Europe, Asia, and Latin America. This is an ideal public school.
The latest test scores prove that all the hard work by teachers and staff are paying off in a big way with all groups showing dramatic improvements. It's just going to get better from here, the Landels community wont be satisfied until 90% of students are proficient or advanced. It's not just academics either, Landels PTA along with CSMA and MVEF provide a rich curriculum including Art, Music, and after school Sports. Landels is probably the best school in Mountain View.
I am so happy that my daughter is at Landels. We looked at all of the available options and have been extremely pleased with all that Landels has to offer. The quality of the teachers is amazing, and I love the ethnic diversity of the school. There are fantastic after school offerings (languages, art, sports) as well. I can't imagine a better school for my kids!
Teachers and Principal are very dedicated. Both my boy and my girl love it and have learnt a lot. They have also made good friends quickly. The environment is multi cultural and differences are valued. I would definitely recommend this school and I am happy to have chosen to send my kids there instead of the private schools, that I had also considered.
First year at Landels, and all I can say is that it's an amazing school. We love it....
Great community school with healthy balance between social and academic achievement. Broad mix of nationalities, cultures and ethnicities gives your kids a great introduction to all societies constituents.
