Chabot Elementary is special because it is a vibrant neighborhood school in a unique urban community.
We love Chabot Elementary School. It is such a fabulous community with tremendous parent participation. The teachers care about the kids and help them reach their potential. The PTA raises almost a quarter of a million dollars to provide enrichment for the students, teacher support and other wonderful programs!
it's the people! the staff, the parents, the kids -- it's a wonderful, supportive community dedicated to helping all kids succeed.
In addition to being a terrific school academically, Chabot Elementary School in Oakland fosters the most unbelievable sense of community for its children and their families. We originally moved to Oakland to attend Chabot, and it has exceeded our wildest dreams. Go Bobcats!
Chabot provides a supportive, caring community for all kids and families. The family involvement and great committment of school staff make it a wonderful school environment.
Chabot combines top-rate academics with a vibrant, active community.
Chabot elementary is located in OAKLAND, California. A lot of the parents in this city enroll their students in private schools. Chabot Elementary has a very strong PTA and high parent participation. Which makes this school a desired diamond.
The teachers, parent commmunity, beautiful and supportive buildings and equipment, strong arts and music program.
Chabot is nestled under a freeway in at the base of the Oakland hills. Like a freeway it leads our kids to far away places and is the place where kids of our community can start their climb toward learning, becoming community members themselves, and making memories and life long friends. We are lucky to have Chabot where the teachers shine and the children are stars.
Chabot has fantastic teachers and soon will have some great new additions. One already is use is the library - numro uno!
Best school in the area! My daughter loves it and is so happy. The teachers and staff are amazing.
It's has a wonderfully diverse, warm and committed community of teachers, staff, parents and students.
GO BOBCATS -- diverse, vibrant, devoted community of teachers, staff and families.
A diverse community school where the parents, teachers and staff are dedicated to providing an excellent education to all students.
A wonderful place for kids to learn, not just the academics, but also how to be a contributing member of a vibrant community.
Great school to start out in for the start of 'the informative years'.
We have just started, for the first time, at Chabot and find it quite comparable if not superior to the Piedmont school we moved from. What a great community for the students and their families.
This school is by far the best elementary school in Oakland. Considering it also is undergoing major construction, it can only get better. There is such a diverse group of parents and children that attend Chabot that continually enhance the learning experience for the kids. I have seen many situations that required hard choices to be made and they have been handled in the best possible way.
I am a 4th grade parent and I think the principal is trying his best to appease all factions at the school ,which tends to make him seem wishy-washy . But, I think his heart is in the right place and he has the children's best interest in mind. I will say that the Chabot teachers and support staff have been great for my child. I love that the school is diverse, and that there are extracurricular programs available to boost my child's academic and social growth. And the teacher's are innovative and think outside of the box with new ways to teach our children. Chabot also dedicates itself to parent outreach and supplemental academnic programs for children that may be struggling in certain areas. Having a strong PTA that raises lots of money to supplement and fund afterschool and enrichment programs also helps. Way to go Chabot!
I agree with the last post: 'Chabot Elementary school has declined steadily under the current principal's leadership - lack of leadership, in fact. Academic rigor is missing, there is no accountability, and the prinicpal simply ignores situations that put children at emotional risk. It's a shame.'
