I have had tow children go through the JBBP program. Both the JBBP progam and the school enjoy an abundance of 'extra' classes that were staples when I was a kid. I have also had the piece of mind that my children are taken care of and are safe in the 'school in the trees'. This is a wonderful school .
Great parent/staff involvement with the underlying goal of making it a great school for our children!
We came from a small private school ( which we loved). I cannot say enough good things about Clarendon - it's a great energy all about, and having more kids with which to interact and play has been a great experience for our 9 year old.
Clarendon Alternative Elementary is one of the best schools because of all the parent involvement, the caring and attentive teachers making the learning environment for the students one the best.
Clarendon's dedicated, stable teaching staff and involved parents have created a culture of achievement and respect. The Japanese culture and language program enriches the curriculum, and helps the children appreciate the diversity all around them in San Francisco.
Clarendon offers an amazing combination of excellent and experienced teachers, enthusiastic and organized parents, and a richly diverse and generally great group of kids. My only regret is that our kids can't stay here until high school!
Clarendon is really a wonderful school. Warm nurturing environment, great teachers who are willing to spend extra time with your child when they need it, great programs and after school programs. The parents of Clarendon are also key to the schools success- everyone is on board to make it and keep it one of SF TOP Schools.
Such a nurturing environment. The principal and teachers are so responsive to the parents and everyone is ready to understand and meet the individual needs of the kids.
Clarendon is a phenomenal school. It feels like home for not only the students but for all the families. Wonderful teachers, nurturing environment and an incredibly involved and committed parent community. We couldn't be happier to be part of it!
Clarendon is a great elementary school. With a solid and caring staff, strong parent groups, and good leadership, the school provides an effective and safe learning environment for children.
Clarendon is like a tight little village. Amazingly competent and caring staff, awesome programs and the parent involvement is second to none. My children have benefited tremendously socially and academically.
This school is amazing, it is the village it takes to raise wonderful kids.
Clarendon Elementary is a wonderful school. It has strong program, very involved parent community, and a great group of kids!
JBBP Teachers and the school staff are great! They truly care about our kids!
Clarendon has amazing teachers, a creative staff and dedicated parents. Everyone works so hard and well together to provide a fun and safe learning environment. My daughter loves going to school!
The teachers are absolutely fabulous and the overall school community is strong and supportive. The parents do alot of active fundraising for the 'extras' such as PE and the Computer Lab. This was the BEST school experience for my children as well as for us. I wish that all schools could maintain the high standards of education and community that Clarendon Alternative Elementary School achieves.
Clarendon is an exceptional school, a place that our daughter loves. We are incredibly fortunate be there.
The parent involvement along with welcoming teachers and administrators create a true community.
