What a wonderful school!! It is a warm, a family-focused environment and I know my children are well taken care of when they are there. The teachers go above and beyond and the principal is always so caring . I would recommend this school to anyone.
Both of my sons went to Atherton Middle School. It was and is a school that encouraged all kids to be their best and do their best. I feel my kids learned many positive things there, and that it was the best environment for them.
I went to atherton and i loved most of the teachers. i really loved the music teacher. she was always there for us.
Atherton High and Middle school band is awesome especially with the great teacher that they have...hes full of patience and determination!!!
I love Atherton Middle School because, that's where I went to middle school and where I learned to read and play music!!
The teachers at Atherton are the reason my kids go to school here! Many people do not realize how much a teacher sacrifices to help the kids and the extra time taken away from his/her own family to give the students the best opportunity to learn and to grow.
AMS is a great school! It has small class sizes so the kids get one on one time with the teachers to learn! The staff is always finding new ways to help the students learn and grow. I went to Van Y, AMS, & AHS and I would highly recommend Atherton Schools to anyone!
Atherton is great. The staff and students are all wonderful and the band deserves this money. :)
My parents attended Atherton and all of my children and nieces and nephews attend Atherton. By keeping the class sizes small it allows more one on one with the students. Smaller schools have a more family/hometown feel to them and Atherton is no exception. I love that although it is small the teachers are highly motivated and always use innovative ideas to teach the students. At Atherton, the teachers and staff truly care about the students and work with the parent and student to ensure student success.
I attended Atherton Middle School. The class sizes were small and the teachers were awesome. I was a member of the band from the 5th grade all the way until my junior year of highschool. That school provided me with all the tools to do great in high school. Atherton High School did an awesome job at preparing us for college and life.
this school is perfect for 4th-8th grade that are looking for higher schooling and i just happen to go to that school.there is great food and the best teachers
