Alvarado is not only a great school, with wonderful teachers, it's also an amazing community bringing together families and teachers. This enables great support for all students so they can get the best from their education.
Because it is an outstanding school with wonderful teachers and administrators who treat my children with love and respect.
I love Alvarado because it is a place where staff, students and parents work together on behalf of our children to give them the best education possible. Our goal is to give our students a safe, nurturing, creative environment where they are challenged academically both in English and Spanish and where they are allowed creative expression themselves through a well developed Arts program.
Alvarado is a loving, nurturing school with a unique art inclusion into the regular curriculum, making it engaging and fun for children.
The teachers go the extra mile to make sure that the students work to their potiential as well as feel successful. The core group of parents do so much for the school.
A strong community, a wonderful principal , very dedicated teachers and. A good learning enveronment and a beautiful facility very famous for it's wonderful murals made by it's students and parents without forgetting the wonderful clay studio.
We are extremely happy at Alvarado. My son is in Kindergarten in the Spanish Immersion class and he absolutely loves it! Extremely committed principal, teachers and parents which is why it's truly a very strong community.
The Spanish Immersion Program gives my child the well needed exposure and rounded education I can feel comfortable with.
I worked in Alvarado Elementry in San Francisco as an after school teacher for 3 years and it was great working with the children, the teachers and the rest of the staff. The teachers work as a team with the children's parents to better their future. I learned a lot while working there.
I am incredibly impressed with the principal, the quality of the teachers and the parent involvement. I feel incredibly fortunate to send my children to such a quality school.
Alvarado is everything a great public school should be. Nurturing, challenging and a wonderful community of parents and kids.
Alvarado is a very colorful spirited community. The arts are an essential part of the education as well as the importance of meeting academic standards. My child has been happy since the day she started.
The dual immersion program is brilliant. English-speaking students learn Spanish and help their Spanish speaking peers master English. Meanwhile, the Spanish-speaking students learn English and help their English-speaking peers master Spanish. The result: Children who are bilingual, bicultural and literate in both languages. Add a strong arts program, an outstanding general education track for those not interested in immersion, a talented teaching staff and a very committed parent body, and you've got a winning combination. The community is very diverse: There are children who live in million dollar homes and kids who live in public housing projects. Both are getting an enviable education and the chance to be a part of a very international community. There are 12 different nationalities represented in our daughter's class alone!
dual language immersion program, special populations served, wonderful teachers
Alvarada has dedicated and devoted teachers who care about each child in their class. It is a wonderful school and my children to my great grandchildren have attended this caring school.
My child is in Alvarado School his third year. We like the program very much and a lot of art activities. We always like his teachers, the way they organize kids, handle discipline matters and communicate with kids and their parents. There are always plenty of after school clubs as well. But most of all we love community of Alvarado school.
best community with a fantastic spasnish immersion program and a very involved and motivated PTA
