Love the field trips, the gardens, the good communication and my first grader is learning sign language!

Submitted by a community member · October 10, 2015
Heard good things about it from many parents. Has involved PTA, which allows for PE, music, art and classes etc.

Amount of homework: Agree
Submitted by a parent · May 22, 2015
Homework is usually assigned over several days so it's not too much. In early grades it seems like the purpose is to get them used to the idea of homework.

Develops character: Strongly agree
Submitted by a parent · May 22, 2015
Kids are encouraged and supported to be honest, kind, and fair. Specific instruction is given as well as unofficial support in conflict resolution. The feeling on campus is that everyone knows each other and are friendly.

About this school

Peralta is a small North Oakland K-5 Elementary School that is committed to providing our community an integrated art learning focus. At Peralta, all children will learn in an environment that is celebratory of their differences, rigorous in complexity, challenging, and joyful. We have partnerships with local museums, bookstores and businesses that support all aspects of our program. Our student work is displayed in local hospitals, offices and even in the American Embassy in Moscow. Student work is available on the Alameda County Web Site and on YouTube. In addition, we have developed a unique Intergenerational Project in which our students visit a local senior day care facility and do art projects with the senior residents. Peralta is a California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon Award School.
