This is a wonderful school! I had seen a major improvements in his studying. He's able to complete his daily homework assignments within 45mins to 1 hour. His reading has improved dramatically! I am very thankful that I made the right decision to transfer my son to this school. Bowers had made a tremondous change in my son's education and our family.
I have two kids that go here, and this is a wonderful school. The faculty is very attentive to the kids' needs, and they do above and beyond their job for the kids. Love, Love, Love this school!!!
I am a former student of Bowers Elementary and am now currently attending UC Berkeley. This school changed my life. Before Bowers, I had attended a private religious institution for 6 years and was petrified at the idea of attending a public school for 5th grade. However, going to Bowers was life changing. Bowers was an incredible school with amazing and supportive teachers who truly cared about their students' personal development and helped me grow in so many ways. I will always be grateful.
This is a wonderful school. I love the teachers and the experiences I have had with my child's classes have shown the teachers (and staff) to be extremely committed to education and caring for our kids. I find my child to be challenged on a regular basis and overall genuinely happy in day to day activities. I think the principal is very involved in all aspects of the school and as a parent I find my child's teacher and principal very accessible when I need information or need to address a concern. I am proud to be a member of the Bowers community!
Great school with excellent teachers and good leadership with the school principal. The principal is really involved in all the school activities and events which is great. Parents can talk freely to him and you see him regularly. He goes into the classrooms and talks to the kids. This is much different than when I went to school, you only saw the principal if you were in trouble.
I have three children that attend Bowers and I am most impressed by the staff and teachers at this school. The heart, commitment and hard work that I see demonstrated day in and day out is extraordinary. My children are not only learning academically, but their characters are being built up by the focus and attention to these important life qualities. Yay Mega Skills!! I also really appreciate the hard work that some of the parents give through the PTA and other volunteer opportunities. Bowers...a GREAT community for learning and life!
Bowers teachers are excellent, caring, and very passionate about teaching. We are very pleased with how Bowers has handled all the budget cuts in these tough economic times and still thrived while keeping the students best interests in mind.
Bowers is a wonderful school. My husband & I attended Bowers as did my children & now grandchildren. All of the staff are very caring, professional & take a great interest in the development of the students. Love this school!!!
My daughter attends Bowers. The principal and teachers/staff are all great: professional, approachable, enthusiastic, and genuinely invested in their students. The school includes extras like music, computer training, and drama. The overall atmosphere of the school is positive and friendly. My daughter enjoys going to school and likes the staff.
My daughter attends this school. We love it. The teachers and Principal are amazing. Exceptional programmes are offered here. When your child wants to go to school everyday it says a lot!!!! Great job Bowers, keep up the good work.......go Bulldogs!

My son went to Bowers from kindergarten to 5th grade. Every teacher that he had there was excellent. The teachers were accessible and always willing to answer questions.
I give Bowers Elementry School Santa Clara, CA. 5 stars for many reasons. My daughter has special needs and every staff member we have worked with has went above and beyond helpful. Not only helpful with my daughter but helpful to my whole family. THANK-YOU Bowers for you loving support these past 4 years.
Bowers Elementary is a wonderful school and community and we are very pleased with the level of education our daughter is receiving in kindergarten. Mrs. Sanderson, our daughter's teacher is fantastic and listens to parents and their requests and finds ways to challenge students to help them grow. Principal Moss is also a great asset to the school. Overall the faculty is experienced and very dedicated to the children. Thank you!
My son went to St.Leo's. he hated going to school. he had a hard time with his school work. they didn't try to help him. I enrolled him at Bowers and he now likes to go to school. he has improved in all subjects. the teachers are great! the principal is exceptional. thank you.
We moved here a couple months ago from the best school district in San Diego so naturally our expectations for an elementary school was high. Our daughter is currently attending first grade at Bowers & unfortunately will not be returning next fall. From the very beginning of the school year, my daughter would come home from with homework that was very similar to the ones she received in kindergarten. I assumed that the teacher wanted to review material that students have already learned and then move on to the next subject. This was not the case. According to the teacher, the homework that they bring home reflects what they are currently learning in class. If that is indeed true, why have we not seen any progression in what she is learning in math or reading comprehension? Bottom line, Bowers will not deliver a challenging environment for your kids.
Bowers is a community full of caring, educated and understanding teachers and staff. Children are fortunate enough to have teachers who truly care about them individually and the principal is very involved and committed to open communication with the families. I love the mega-skills program, the PTA involvement, and the fabulous team approach shared by all!
I would never send my child to any school that was less than excellent. The teachers are top notch and the staff is kind, trustworthy and caring (especially Mrs. Foster.) It would be great to see more parental involvement at the many fun school events, but the students have a great educational experience overall.
