We have been very pleased with our daughter's progress at Chabot Elementary School. She came to Chabot as a third grader who previously had attended a private school. Her teacher, Vincent Benedetto, is fantastic. He loves his job and the children he teaches. He and the principal, Ms. Sadler, are kind, but firm with the children. Our daughter is looking forward to next year and hopes to get Ms. Diamond. We are very happy with this school.
Our two sons, K and 3rd grade are ending their first year at Chabot. We could not be happier. The K teachers are all amazing, Mrs. Ahmad has to be the best (because of course, she's ours!) Mrs. Lee is wonderful as well. The garden instructor, Natalie is great with the kids. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the classrooms, unlike the high preforming OUSD school we left to be here. This is actually a place we like to be involved, and feel welcomed. I'm glad to be a Chabot parent, to know my children will get a good education and be well prepared for middle school. I'd encourage anyone with schoolage kids wanting the best experience for their children to consider Chabot.
I have a daughter who is mixed with black & white and I must say I feel so welcome there. My daughter was at a private school I pulled her out in the middle of 2nd grade she is now going into the 4th grade there. Not only was she the only one of color but we just wern't happy there. So we found Chabot & they took us right in and we love it there. The staff are just great. I am sorry they don't go any more then 5th grade because I sure would keep her there. Wonderful, clean & safe. If there is a spot there and your looking this is the school you will be very happy there I sure am.
My child attends Chabot elementary and loves every bit of it. After enrolling him in private schools for the first 2 years of schooling I decided to try a public school for more diversity as well as the opportunity to be involved in extra 'enrichment' activities. Chabot offers my child everything he needs to remain academically challenged and offers after school programs that has him anticipating each school day with excitement! He absolutely loves attending school. I couldn't be happier with the principal, the PTA, Adventure Time and the wonderful teachers at Chabot. I feel like I hit the jackpot without paying a hefty price (private school tuition). Kudos to Chabot for offering the children, and their parents, a well rounded, challenging education. I'm getting more from Chabot than I paid for in private school!
Chabot is an example of what a good public school should look like. It's a diverse and active community of caring teachers, administrators, parents and after-care professionals who genuinely care about the school and the kids it serves. The principal has made a tremendous commitment to maintaining the balance between a strictly neighborhood school and one that welcomes diverse members from the Oakland community. Children have a tremendous opportunity to learn about other cultures, develop an awareness of our natural and cultural environment and become informed members of the community all within the context of a solid, academic focus. The school is quite large (but with manageable class sizes), however plans are in the works to alleviate some of the crowding on the playgrounds.
My daughter has been at Chabot since kindergarden it is outstanding. The best kindergarden team of teachers. And new this year a excellent second grade teacher Ms. L. Olrcih who recently got a Marcus Foster grant to do a diversity project with her second grade class that my son is a part of plus a laptop. All props to Chabot for the outstanding public education that is as good a private. PTA & SSC is great too!
My daughter had the opportunity to transfer to Chabot after a month at another Oakland school (which was another one of the few highly rated schools in OUSD.) After only three weeks of attending Chabot the differences in the two schools are very apparent. Not only is Chabot more fun, and more diverse but the academic expectations are much higher. The teachers are wonderful, the staff is wonderful, the principal is wonderful. I feel secure and happy for the first time since my child started kindergarden. Despite all these positives, the thing that makes Chabot stand out far beyond the other school my daughter attended, is the involvement and participation of the parents. I feel proud to be one of the Chabot parents. We have several parent volunteers in our class every single day. The PTA is amazing, organized and the members are passionate. I cannot say enough good things about Chabot. But foremost, it is the parents and the caring families that really make the difference.
Our son has had an excellent experience at Chabot. His teachers are outstanding and he has excelled both academically and socially in this stimulating and creative setting. The principal is both dedicated and talented in her work. We are extremely fortunate to have this opportunity to send our child to such a wonderful school. The school is culturally and economically diverse, academically vigorous and fun!
An Outstanding principal, superb staff, phenomenal after-school care and a committed and extremely active PTA. Chabot is more than a school. It is a community!
It is a great school. The PTA is the best in Oakland and we have a web site for more info. http://www.chabotelementary.org/
