I thought it was a great idea when they decided on turning this into a K-8th Grade school. But now I'm wishing I would have sent my child to a real middle school. There are always substitute teachers. The principal do not know how to handle the middle schoolers. When a situation arises she ignores it instead working on trying to resolve issues she shuns away from it. The bullying is out of control. In order for this K-8th Grade idea to work I think they should have two principals there. One for the K-5th grade and one for 6-8th who have experience in dealing with tweens. It's sad to see the school go down hill as it is going because it was once a really nice safe school to send your child.

I've been here for 4 years and it's getting more and more disappointing to see the school going down because of lack of leadership. The principal is very disconnected with the children the staff and the parents in so mNy ways it's like she don't even care at times. I will be leaving this school district for the next school year because my child deserves better.
If there is a disconnection at the elementary school then the parent should take this to the district office. Please don't let this pass by. I've had to take lots of things to the district office where my children attend Middle School. Elementary is the time students receive their foundation that supports them throughout their educational experience. This needs to be voiced again to the district office and if nothing happens call the Alameda County Office of Education and report it. Parents have to advocate for their children until they finish high school. It is so important! If I didn't do it who would've. Students first ....Believe me things happen when you contact Alameda County Office of Education with complaints about your child's school.
The Principal is very disconnected when it comes to the children. Children go to her for issues that the Teacher can't or wont deal with and she dismisses then so they dont feel she will help with anything. Ms. Allen on the other hand was very attentive to the students..
It's been another great year at Anna Yates! My son has attend for 2nd 3rd and now 4th grade. He is looking forward to 5th grade and his teacher Ms. Johnson is great. Computer lab garden science yoga art band and the standard studies ensures a well rounded child. The teachers are dedicated the principal is friendly and cares. My son feels valued and cared for most of the time and as a parent I trul enjoy and appreciate being able to genuinely partner with his teacher to help ensure his success. I love this school!
Their anti-bulling program was put into effect a little too late for my child. I found the teacher and principal to be dismissive and even questioned the validity of my claims in a very disrespectful manner that I would not have expected from a principal. I did not experience the respect and concern for my child that others parents mention. I have heard many similar concerns from other parents so I truly hope that the current program is effective for the children's sake and their safety. I can not speak on their current program but due to their unconcern for my child the effects from the experience in this school still haunt the interactions at the new school.
My daughters performed this week in the school play and the school music and dance recitals. Next year the school will expand to k-7 and all of the 7th graders will have electronic text books similar to ipads. The school has a family feeling where older kids often take care of younger ones. My daughter reads to the kindergarteners and my kids and their friends feel like the art room and library are a home away from home. There are always things to improve but Anna Yates seems to get better every year!
It has been a great year at Anna Yates! My son loves learning and is enjoying his educational experience. He loves the library and reading and feels like he's treated w/respect. I appreciate the school's positive "360 degree person" approach to education and look forward to next year!
ANNA YATES IS GREAT! Our 4 year old daughter started kindergarten there this September. She is our only child. We knew she was young and we figured that she can repeat kindergarten at a private school if Anna Yates did not work out. No chance of that happening! Her teacher Mrs. Jordan is making sure that Emily keeps up with the older kids and that she thrives. My daughter has shown incredible maturity and poise in the 3 months she has been there! We love Mrs. Jordan and we are so proud of Emily!
Anna Yates is a really small school that is trying real hard to make a valuable contribution and focus on excellent learning skills amongst its kids. The school has worked real hard to break away from its past and the issues around its district and improve the lives of its kids!!!! Three cheers for Anna Yates!!!!
What an awesome community of parents teachers and students! The leadership is amazing!!!
Anna Yates is amazing! I am glad my children attend.
Anna Yates has helped me transition two step kids from Thailand to the US. They have talented teachers and plenty of resources. My kids get 40 minutes of personalized reading and writing several times per week and a variety of benchmarking and assessments. There is a focus on college preparation. I supplement the education with a tutor and this seems to be a useful combination. Overall the three years of education spanning 1st-3rd and 4th to 6th grades have been inspirational and progressive. The facilities are like new with competitive science area playground and classrooms.
This school is unorganized unprofessional and poorly ran I have to agree with the parent that spoke about the altercations my children has had their share of run in's while attending this school. Yes children will have disagreements But schools are suppose to have rules and regulations in place that deal with negative behavior which in turn makes children feel safe and I feel this school does a poor job of providing children with that. Instead the children loose recess for an extended amount of time (which means all they do is sit in the office and do nothing) then turn right around and do the same thing over again.. What is that teaching them? Nothing
As a parent of two children at Anna Yates I am very pleased with the school. My children are happy to be at school and are making friendships that will last through high school. Anna Yates is a school that strives to be the best that it can be. Teachers receive regular training in the best ways to enhance the teaching of writing and math. The students by sixth grade are writing with proficiency. Anna Yates is a school that continues to make huge strides in education. The sense of family and cohesiveness starts at the District Office and carries through to all the students. A school well worth checking out.
The staff at Anna Yates is very professional and caring. They are excellent role models for our children. There are many resources despite the economy available to our children. Teachers often provide support for our children on their own time.
I have been an Anna Yates parent for the last 6 years and I LOVE it! The staff are family oriented and are not afraid to show that they care about the students. I have never had a problem that was not handled professionally and in a timely manner. I appreciate them for the care and support they give my children and myself. I also high;y recommend this school to any parent looking to have their child where they can receive love and compassion away from home. Keep up the good work Anna Yates! I am looking forward to another 6 years with you!
This school is not worthy of a review as you can see great schools only gives this school a 4 that in itself should tell you all you need to know yes there are other factors that come with this rating but I am speaking from experience. My children has only gone to this school a short while and the experience there has been horrible the staff is unprofessional unorganized and unaware. They depend on the students to keep them informed on whats going on in the school there is little to no supervision and because of their lack of interest or concern for their students there is always some type of altercation.or confusion. I have never had this problem with my children before this school no my children are not perfect but I have never had my children come home being picked on or bullied until they attended this school
Anna Yates is a wonderful school. It has a warm community feel and holds high expectations for students.
While other California schools are cutting programs Anna Yates has built innovative partnerships to make sure that Art science music librarians counselors wellness programs school nurses and many other programs are going strong. The school has a lovely sense of family and was renovated in 2008 to add school gardens a science center art studios and a new field for kids to play on. The teachers work well together and parents are very supportive of the teachers. It's more than a great school it's a great community
