    Yerba Buena Elementary School offers many different learning opportunities via unique activities like African Drumming hip hop classes Walk Through the American Revolution Colonial Fair art programs Reading Counts and interesting technology applications in the classroom etc. There is a lot of variety for a variety of learners.

    My kids attended the original YB and now my grandkids are at the new amazing YB facility. Luckily the one consistency is the high quality of teachers in the Las Virgenes school district. I volunteer in 2 classrooms and as the daughter of a school administrator I pay close attention to all the details. I am very thankful the next generation of our family gets to attend such a wonderful public school.

    I have two kids attending YB and we are in our second year with the school. Last week my 5 year old said to me as we walked into school on the new walking/bike path "Mom I thank God for the wonderful school I get to go to." I couldn't agree more! Except I would also like to thank my husband for going to work everyday to support us living in the the YB school zone. Both of my boys run into school so excited each and everyday. They both love YB and their teachers. The school offers so much to our kids like art music PE dance computers an amazing library. Also YB and Mrs. Desiderio has been able to keep the class sizes so low. What more could we ask for? The parents participate and are all so down-to-earth and friendly too. "YB Positive? Because we can!" This really does fit our school.

    We truly believe Yerba Buena Elementary is the best school in our area. We've been here for about 7 years and each year the staff and the principal is continuously working on improving the school in every aspect. The teachers are wonderful the office staff is always so kind to all the kids. What else can we ask for. This year especially with the new sidewalk the traffic and parking situation is so much better it makes it so much easier for the parents. My kids love going to YB.

    Yerba Buena is an awesome elementary school. I am very pleased my children are attending YB. Excellent caring teachers fabulous office staff who care as much as the teachers and a principal that goes to the front of the line for all of her students. Would like to see greater parent involvement however the teachers top notch. Principal is very geared toward ensuing respect among the students as well as strong education in academics arts and technology. The cirriculum is a challenge however students will be prepared for higher education and life's goals and challenges. My kids love YB and their teachers!!! Thank you.

    Yerba Buena is an excellent school with outstanding educators and staff. The new YB BEAT with its focus on the arts and technology is the perfect complement to a challenging and engaging curriculum. My girls are constantly challenged yet enjoy every minute of it. The teachers are outstanding particularly Mrs. Kallman. My kids have been at the school 5 years now and we've been very fortunate to have wonderful and caring teachers each year. While parking has always been a challenge I think the new sidewalk appears to be cutting down on the congestion; hopefully it continues to improve. Overall EXCELLENT school and my girls are so happy to be here!!

    My girls have been here for K & are now starting 1st grade. So far it's been a great experience. Their K teacher Mrs. Garrido is a wonderful & caring teacher. She did a great job in transitioning them from preschool to grade school. The traffic situation seems to be getting better with the new sidewalk because I don't have to worry about kids jaywalking or cars making 3 point turns going into the school. Also if I decide to walk them in I don't have to worry about driving the whole loop before parking. I love how they hired a dance instructor for PE this year & how they incorporate arts/technology especially since these programs get cut at other schools.

    My son's school is great because they work very hard to have the required funds to educate our children even when state funds isn't enough. What solidified my excellent ranking score is our school really cares about our students. They just don't say it they do it. Like the recent sidewalk. I could just imagine what they had to go through to get it done. It turned out amazing!!! I'm proud of my son's school.

    Yerba Buena Elementary school is amazing! This is definitely one of the best schools in the district. The teachers and staff are the reason this school stands out

    This school is the reason our family moved to Agoura Hills and this neighborhood in particular. Out of 9 schools we toured YB was by far the most outstanding. Newer campus excellent facilities a staff and principal who care about the kids. We feel confident that our children are getting a great education in a safe environment.
