This is by far the best elementary school in this district, balancing creativity and "kid-ness" with learning. Many local high-cranial-pressure schools are shooting themselves in the foot by piling too much work on kids at too young an age. Allow kids to be kids so not only does their creativity soar, but they develop a lifelong love of learning.

We have two boys at San Ramon and we couldn't be happier with it. The teachers each have had are top-notch - in fact, I couldn't imagine a better education for them. The parental involvement is excellent and there is a lot of community and family support for this school. What I particularly love is the project-based learning approach, even in the midst of California standards, which I feel have limited teachers overall. Not these! They retain their values for teaching the way that young children actually learn - through projects and art versus drills and worksheets. My children are happy at San Ramon - in fact, there are smiles all around campus - a very happy, friendly school.

San Ramon Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers are incredibly caring and family oriented. There are a ton of parent volunteers that help in the classrooms daily. They have a very strong PTA that provides many extra programs to enrich the classroom learning. My kids are very happy at San Ramon. They've made numerous neighborhood friends. San Ramon is a gem!

Great academics. Thanks to external funding sources and PTA some programs in musica and art are increasing. Parent involvement is very good.

San Ramon has some very good k-5 teachers and high parent involvement. They have a good library and maintain art and music programs to the best of their ability. They have the kids best interest at heart.

San Ramon has provided a valuable education for my older children and I currently have one enrolled. Teacher and staff are very easy to reach and parent involvment has been the key. I think that the diverse community at San Ramon has well prepared my children for the real world out there. Thank you San Ramon.
