By the end of the school year I was sick of the school and driving to it but my two little ones were near tears on the last day of school. It is summer time and I miss everyone there...the parents, teachers, office people, the kids etc. There is a definite community to the school that would be hard to find in another ps school. It is family. For my 5 sweet timid girls it has been perfect. 2 of of my five once timid girls are now very outspoken confident girls.For my oldest son it was great until about last year or so. I don't know what the deal is....recent school changes, family changes, adolescent changes, personality issues who knows? Upside: All six of my kids attend the school. Downside: No one else is commuting from Castro Valley/San Ramon with a vehicle large enough to fit 7 kids.
Sadly this school has taken a turn for the worse since the new Principle has come on board. It seems that many parents are unhappy and feel frustrated with the new direction and poor choices.
Sunol Glen is a wonderful school! The staff is very knowlegable and caring about children. The Principal is always available and is student-centered in all her decisions. Most of the students are from other districts due to the parents having discovered what a great school Sunol Glen is. My children love their teachers and the Principal! I definitely recommend Sunol Glen School.
I am a parent of a kinder student and I am happy with the school as of now. Although the class seems rushed my child is learning a lot. Mrs. Rad is wonderful with the kids and I can't wait for my younger child to be in her class! I am unhappy with the lack of communication among the parents. It is ridiculous that there is so many problems because of parent gossip! I do understand that this would be a problem with most schools but I thought going to a small school would cut back on gossip... I was wrong. Also the fact that parents are ganging up on the principle is horrible. Especially because most of the kids are transfers... if you don't like it go back to your home school!
The new direction of Sunol Glen and numerous new hires, most with little teaching experience, has hurt the school over the past two years. Sunol needs to refocus on their former strong core academic teaching, such as writing, reading and arithmetic. This is what made Sunol Glen a great school. Sadly, I can no longer recommend it as an excellent school.
Sunol Glen is a wonderful school . My child is an interdistrict transfer form Fremont's test driven unfriendly schools. We are beginning our 2nd year. Sunol's caring and friendly atmosphere, coupled with small class sizes and high academic standards, is exactly what a good school should be.
Small school.Very nice teachers.Very friendly place for children to be in.Good academic program.
Wonderful school, caring teachers, administration/staff and principal. Where everyone knows everyone and students and parents work with administration/ teachers/principal to make it better!
This small school has a talented and caring staff who cares deeply about the educational success of each student. The parent participation is superb and adds greatly to the excellence of the school.
