Amazing school. I am so happy my boy can transfer to this school. The teacher is so nice and patient to him. I can feel that my boy is improving.

My son started kindergarten and Alamo and has had an amazing experience. Even though there are four classrooms per grade, it feels like a small community. Our son's teacher is experienced, yet she brings this freshness and engagement with the children that creates a great learning environment. There are many ways for parents to get involved, such as the Halloween carnival, and it's not all about fundraising, but raising fun as well. I'm very pleased with the afterschool program RDASC, as the staff are well trained, observant, and care about the kids. Our son sings the school song with pride: "Everyone's a friend I know, at A-L-A-M-O!"

Our school is Alamo Elementary in SF's Richmond District. My son is in the First Grade and we have had a great experience thus far. The teachers at Alamo are wonderful---long tenured, dedicated and caring. Principal Fong is in her second year at the school and has brought great energy, new ideas and best practices from her long successful career into the school. The PTA is active and growing with lots of fundraising, community building and enrichment programs for kids and parents. Alamo is a wonderful school and should be a top consideration for local families!

This is our second year at Alamo and we can not believe it.. Our daughter is in first grade and she loves going to school. We have had great teachers and well as great supportive parents and the PTA. Everyone goes above and beyond to accomplish goals for the kids.. Principal Fong is extremely great and a fantastic resource.. All the teachers have tenure and all fully invested in making a difference with the kids.. I'm so glad that my other two kids will also be attending here ..

A-L-A-M-O, that's my school, that's Alamo!! Magic. It's all true, there is something alchemical that happens here. Not evident to the naked eye, but the HEART comes through in just about every touchpoint. No attitude, all commitment. I was going to move my family out of state for financial-survival reasons, but I simply could not tear us away from this school.An irreproducible combination of intellectual engagement, society building from the ground up, and well-rounded dedication to fostering excellence, confidence and JOY in our children on as many fronts as possible--academic, artistic, athletic, expressive, civic, social and compassionate. "A" is for "Amazing." Alamo truly carries on a rich and proud legacy of authenticity in achievement. Come here only if you want to fall in love and give your heart and helping hands to a community of genuinely wonderful people, big and little.

Alamo's motto is "be a friend". They empower each student to be kind to others and to find joy in learning. The dedication of the teachers is absolutely amazing. This urban school has a great and involved community as well. My son asks me most days if we can get to school early!

Alamo is a great school that enforces their motto "Be A Friend". My son is excited about going to school every weekday. He has made many friends since kindergarten. He is currently in 4th grade and also in violin class and a lunch football league (which I didn't even know existed before) that is provided by the school. Also, he likes what he's learning in class. They provide healthy breakfast and lunches provided by Revolution Foods. My son enjoys his school very much.

Our child has started K this year and we were super nervous. Our boy is only 5 y.o. and very active. Thanks to his teacher (Mrs.Liu), the classroom environment is a perfect combination of discipline, care, creativity, play and learning. I am much relieved and know my child is in good professional hands! Great schools attract excellent teachers!

Our son just started in Kindergarten at Alamo this past August, and we love it! Back when we were touring, we were overwhelmed by all the variables and possibilities, but ultimately what mattered most were the most basic things. The school day goes from 8:40-2:40, which is ideal for us - it mirrors our work schedule and it means our son can wake up without an alarm and we can ease into each day -- happy. The school has a great sense of community with assembly each morning. Our son sings his school song every day, all day, to the point all our non-Alamo friends know the Alamo song too! His teacher (and all the others I've heard of) do a great job communicating with us via regular email. Our son feels cared for and safe, and has made lots of friends. While schools can be differentiated on lots of things, for us, these were the things that mattered most, and Alamo has been fantastic!

Alamo has been one of the top schools in San Francisco for a long time. It has changed since the 70s, when not all of the children were allowed to attend. My Chinese brother-in-law, school age at the time, sat on the curb along with his parents in protest. Now the school has one of the highest API scores in the City and it has come a long way from the 70s. We are proud to have such a fine school in San Francisco.

This school is great and I had two children there. They both enjoy going to school everyday. I was very worried about my younger daughter how she was doing since she was very shy. But it turn out to be fine. I ask them both everyday about how they were doing at school. I always get an answer "good" and start talking about all kinds of things they did at school. I am very happy about Alamo. All the parents and teachers are very friendly. I feel very safe dropping them off and went off to work.

Just because a school has high test scores doesn't make it a great school. I can only speak for the upper grade teachers, but most of them need to retire. If your child is a left brain, auditory learner they will do well here. If your child needs be more hands on and a visual right brain instruction then they will struggle. This school is very traditional and teaches using worksheets. Also if your child has anything special or requires additional help in the class room then this is not the school for you. The only positive thing I can say about this school is it is small and they do have a lot of parent involvement.

I attended Alamo School from 1976-1981 and it was a wonderful school and I'm glad to read by the reviews that it is still the wonderful school it has always been. In these tough economic times, when teachers aren't being compensated like they should, it's really nice to know that this school has maintained its dedication to the students and their education.

Alamo focuses on the three Rs, in a supportive environment. (It's motto is 'Be a Friend!') The teachers are great, and do so much with so little. Teachers and staff expect all students to perform at a high level, and are quick to step in if they see any child slipping behind. Parents are perhaps too involved -- but it's the only way to get everything done!

It is an inclusive environement where I feel my children can learn and thrive.

Parental Involvement: Bottom Line: You get what you put in. Alamo has very high parent participation. Not uncommon to have 3 parents helping any K 2nd at any given time. Field trips, double that. Atmosphere: This a very nurturing school and has a motto: 'Be a Friend' which educates kids about what a friend is and what is a bully. Our kids feel very safe. This outweighs the fact that the building looks like a 1970's hospital. The school grounds is very institutional due to past earthquake retrofitting but the teachers and volunteers have tried their best to dress up the utilitarian block of concrete with beautiful mosaics, murals, art projects, anew paint and plantings. Teachers: Teachers are strong partners in identifing our childs needs. They love the kids and want them to all succeed and will give a fair accurate evaluation of their progress. Very good art, singing for all. Chinese and Russian language programs afterschool.

Overall this is one of the better elementary schools in the city. Academically it's challenging, even though not all teachers are as academically oriented as I think they should be. Biggest complaint is the lack of extracurricular activity and field trips.

Alamo is a wonderful school and we have had nothing but wonderful experiences here for the past 5 years. The teachers are wonderful, the parents are hightly motivated in participating in every way and my child has made great friendships.
