I have my two children at Strawberry Elementary School. I feel so blessed that they are there. Principal Humble, the teachers and staff are a group of top notch educators. My children receive not only the best education possible from a public school, but the best education around. I am also amazed at how they match the specific children's needs to the children's assigned teachers. What a beautiful school, right next to Strawberry Park. It is such a calm and nurturing environment that we frequent the park and school on week ends. My children just can't get enough. Thank you Strawberry!
I have 2 kids at Strawberry and overall we have been very impressed. The teachers are committed and work together as a team. The kids enjoy school and look forward to each day, there is an emphasis on good behavior. If anything, there are perhaps too many "rules."
I can't emphasize how lucky I have been as a parent to have my son at Strawberry. He previously attended another district here in SR and I pulled him out due to some horrible experiences he/we had endeured. Strawberry teachers/staff/Principal, have been more than supportive in my son's education. We will never forget how much his teachers and Mr Humble have taken such a strong stand in furthering his academic goals. Thanks Strawberry!
This is an excellent school, especially if your child attended Yulupa Elementary and you were less than impressed. Strawberry is a much stronger school, something we were told by an educational psychologist when we wanted to pull our son out of Yulupa. They also have a band and chorus program. Mr. Y, the principal is the best! He is extremely involved in all aspects of the school. Our son was miserable at Yulupa but loves this school. If you have an advanced student, Strawberry will be able to provide the challenges they need.
I know of several families that transfer their children out of private schools to attend Strawberry once their child reaches the fourth grade. The small school district makes communication between principal and administrators a breeze. And the parents fund arts and music through a private foundation. Great programs - great school.
