Unfriendly office staff. When a boy went into the office with bloody scratches on his elbow, knee and hip, all they can tell him was, "get a band-aid and leave." Are we not teaching our kids to be caring any more?

It is definitely great because their safety is really secure. One time when a 1st grader started going crazy and we had to do code red, after only 10 to 20 minutes everything was normal again. Also the teachers are also high quality. The teacher makes school educational but they also make it fun.

Don't let the high API make you think that it has anything to do with the school or the teachers. Most of the kids that come to these schools have educated parents. They may also have a parent at home keeping them in line with school. Many of these students are from families that value better academic standards than the regular public schools. Most are either Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Koreans , and very small percentage of southeast Asian such as Vietnamese Burmeses and Filipinos for all of the Cupertion Union School District. If your kid is not interested in learning or is above average than he/she will not get any better cuz the child along with their parents put in the most effort. The teachers are about 20% responsible. Just letting you people know and not to think that there is anything to do with the staffs. It is very expensive homes per square footage and also the rent is going crazy right now. My kids love school and are doing very well and that is the reason we stay.

This is a wonderful medium sized school with great academics and highly motivated teachers. The school has two different programs, neighborhood and Chinese Immersion. The neighborhood teachers are very caring, student oriented and easily accessible. The new principal is very good at motivating the teachers. I have already seen a difference. A new playground has just been installed for the students. Thanks Mrs. Hickey. The Chinese Immersion program however is using too much resources of this school. As a result, some programs for the whole student body such as chess has to be taken away. The Chinese program takes students from the Cupertino district. Teachers are mostly from Taiwan and the atmosphere is also Chinese. Parents involvement high. Teachers work hard, however, need to be more Americanized in teaching. Not for every student who wants to learn Chinese.

Overall Great!!! great parent participation, administratively very organized, caring staff and involved parents. My daugher loves it! and the YMCA that is on campus is rated the best in the system. Peace of mind.....

This school had two great principals the past years. But this year (2010-2011), there is a new principal. The Principal is completely unenthusiastic about adding more extra curricular programs. She has no vision of where she wants the school to progress. She is completely uninterested in betterment of the kids and the school. I would really think twice in enrolling in a school with such an indifferent principal.
