If this is such a perfect school then why are four more teachers leaving this year????? Don't even try to convince me that it is for better wages. The Super is very difficult! Come on people open your eyes- Stop being intimidated.
If you're interested in a private school feel with a public school price then Sunol Glen Elementary is for you! This school is unique because only 20 or so families with school aged kids actually live in the district. So the school exists because dedicated, motivated and enthusiastic parents choose to bring their kids to the school! 3 main reasons families choose to transfer to Sunol Glen are: #1 the leadership the principal/superintendent has provided to turn this school around in the last couple of years; #2 the outstanding teachers the school recruits; #3 the ability to make a difference in our children's lives. If you want to join a large group of transfer parents, teachers and a principal that are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of kids and students -- then Sunol Glen is for you!
Great Elementary program but the Middle School section does not prepare it's students for the reality of High School. All "extra" programs are for a fee. The principal firmly beleives in guilty until proven innocent, especially if the family is not finacially supporting the school through their many "fundraisers".
small school with an interdistrict transfer rate of 80% Our local children are being lost in the crowd as the school caters to the transfers. Am moving my last child out of this school.
1. Our school has the most excellent teachers I have ever met. 2. the academic programs are very challenging. 3. I wish the school went all the way to 12th grade!
A wonderful environment for learning supported by a solidly committed group of Teachers and Staff. This is backed up by a group of caring parents and grandparents.
Sunol Glen is close-knit community with wonderful parental support. The teachers are invested in all the students, not just the ones on their roster.
Amazing parent participation at this school, really puts it over the top for amazing classes and great teacher-student ratios.
I love the community feel. Everyone really does know everyone else! It feels like a safe, nurturing environment and the teachers get to know the children and cater to their needs. They also still offer programs that allow for a balanced education. We commute 15 minutes to get here, and it's well worth it!
Sunol Glen School is a small, supportive, and caring community where every student is nurtured. The school still provides a well rounded education including art, music, etc. Teachers are committed to do what it takes to ensure every child learns. The community, school staff, and administrators all work together to do what's in the best interests of the students. It is truly a wonderful school.
The school is a public school with a private school fee. The students are not a number but known by their first names BY EVERYONE. The teachers at Sunol love what they do and it shows. The teachers go above and beyond ALWAYS. I commute my daughter to Sunol 15 miles out of our school district to ensure she gets the best experience at Sunol.
Sunol Glen is a one school, school-district, grades Preschool-8th. Sunol is a small rural town and the school has less than 300 kids combined. As a small public school, you will find the perfect setting for your child's education. Sunol Glen has great teachers who have the dedication to help your child succeed. The teachers know the children so much better than in the larger schools, and you will know the families. It's one happy family! Where can you get this for free? Save your money and let your tax dollars support this school along with your participation and support. It's worth the drive to have people who care so much about your children, teaching your children. A few small sacrifices, like no foreign language in middle school, but they do have art, journalism/publishing, student council, and band. The Community Club is a great organization to participate in, they really do a lot for the school. The principal is working hard to keep improving this school. I highly recommend this school!
It is a great small school that fosters self confidence in all students. The family feel is also a great draw to the school. I am a teacher her and will we a parent of a student at our school as well next year. It is a great place for students and teachers to be!!!
Sunol Glen is truly special. The staff is incredible. My kids adore their teachers and have thrived at this school. It is one of a kind.
I love the small school feel. The teachers know every child and really try to challenge them at their own level or pace.
Our school is wonderful! The teachers are so enthusiastic and talented and the parents are engaged and supportive. It's an awesome learning community that we are very happy to be a part of it!
Sunol Glen offers a wonderful learning environment for our children with very supportive and committed teachers!!!
It is a small school in the giant San Fransisco Bay Area. Most schools here are big and over crowded and full of troubles. Sunol Glen is a step back in time to the world we all used to know. Caring, close, and gentler. I am so glad to have found it.
Sunol Glen is an amazing environment that encourages and supports our students. We are so very lucky to have found this little school.
