East San Jose is committed to bi-lingual education. They offer an excellent bi-lingual program, dedicated teachers, accessible administration, solid arts programming, comprehensive after school programs and one of the finest gifted programs in the city. If families are looking for a bi-lingual education with peer modeling for language and culture, they should definitely look at East San Jose.

My daughter has attended East San Jose since kindergarden and is now bilingual. She participated in the graduated 90/10 program which is now a 50/50 english and spanish program in the 5th grade. The teachers are excellent: committed, caring and imaginative. Homework is assigned most days and parents must sign a daily reading calender in the first 4 years. The principal and the vice principal are strict and organized; also very caring, extremely approachable and flexible to help each family and child succeed. The school is very safe. An increasing number of after school activities are being offered. I think that my family will greatly miss the gentle, gracious culture of ESJ when my daughter graduates.

East San Jose is an excellent school for both Engligh and Spanish speakers. My son is in the 50/50 program where he is taught all subjects in English one week and Spanish the next week. There is no trnaslation so the students are emerced in the language. Because of the superior and dedicated teaching staff, my 2nd grade son is reading and writing at grade level in Spanish and above grade level in English.
