Chabot offers a postitive, kid-centered environment for learning. Our children have had needs distinct from one another, so we've observed different approaches to offering kids ways to engage in academic subject matter, challenges, and participation in a community. I couldn't have designed a better environment for our kids.
Anthony Chabot Elementary is a great place for children to grow and learn. The teachers and the administration are engaged, caring, and creative. I am amazed at the amount of effort and time everyone puts in to make this a memorable and fulfilling experience for our children.
This school is beyond words. The staff are engaged and engaging with the students. My son loves it there. In his previous school, he would just sorta hang out with his friends, but he didn't really enjoy learning. At Chabot, he has really started enjoying learning to read and write and do math. And once that enthusiasm has been kindled, he's becoming a regular lil learning monster. I LOVE IT! The principal is also very involved. You'll see him walking around in the mornings, talking to parents or students, looking over the road crossing brigade, checking out the kids playing on the play structure. He is very in touch with what's going on "on the ground" and does not just hide in his office. Overall, Chabot Elementary has done wonders for my son, and there's no other school I'd rather put my boy in!
Best school! Friendly, responsible, caring principle, staff and community! 2 kids attending, 1 in future.
Chabot Elementary is a very academically sound school, that places equal emphasis on extracurricular activities for enrichment. The schools PTA is very strong group, and the school community reflects that. John Mayer is an exceptional principal who is very personable with parents and students alike. We entered the Chabot Family late, however we were welcomed into the fold. My son graduated from Chabot last spring and he was totally prepared for middle school.
My son will be entering the 4th grade this coming school year and has been here just since last year. He feels comfortable and confident for the first time at school. The teachers are top-rate, the principal is a great leader and the school community is progressive and well organized.
My daughter has been attending since kindergarten and is now in 4th grade. Every teacher has been excellent. The principal sets the pace with tremendous energy (when was the last time you saw a principal doing PE, calisthenics, band with the students...regularly?!). He really does seem to know every kid and their parents on a first name basis. 500+ kids, and he manages it all. Teachers are first rate, well educated themselves, and very concerned about the kids. PTA, parent involvement, diversity, and anti-bullying translates to the kids knowing they are indeed special. It's amazing no one has updated Chabot's profile recently.
They have worked hard to be an inclusive community with lots of parent involvement. They are just completing a large new building to accommodate more children and services. I think they could use the money for equipment for the new building.
It has a great community and the PTA is like family. We are grateful to have this because our voices are always heard.
A very involved PTA has restored programs not funded by the State. We have a brand new auditorium large library and a new K-2 classroom about to open. There is a sting diversity of students and a visionary principal.
Chabot Elementary School is a great school for many reasons: a dedicated and capable staff and teachers, a strong PTA, and a caring and involved community! We love having such a great public school to send our kids to!
Chabot has been such a great school for all three of my daughters bescause of a family oriented atmosphere and they are really dedicated to making sure kids are learning and the well being of each student
Great community, strong commitment to academics and social awareness, diversity, and, most important, good kids!
Great teachers and staff, dedicated parents, hard working students. Excellent library, art, spanish, technology, PE programs make the school particularly effective.
Why do you love Chabot Elementary School? The teachers are great and there is a lot of diversity.
With Oakland schools losing money, this community of teachers and parents work hard to raise support for our kids to have adequate supplies, equipment, and support staff. We do it with style!
The staff, the parents, the kids everyone is committed to helping all kids succeed and to make Chabot a great school
The strong PTA and great teachers, the enrichment programs and a committed principal
