    My child was a straight A student who was involved in the GATE programs at this school. Ever since the district removed the programs my child kept on complaining about transferring to another school. Her classes were so easy that she skipped her last year at an elementary school. She was a highly capable student with that had no challenges. The teachers were great but the schools programs were what attracted me at first.

    We just have a new principal and have not have a chance to talk with her one on one. I am truly disappointed of how little support we are getting from the parents and the school district. We need to support the teachers that we now have. They are great. THe school district needs to start educating the children rather than taking teachers music PE and library away from them. I experience going to school in a third world country and I am beginning to think that I had it much better when I was in elementary. The whole system is being corrupted and our children are the one who are suffering from the whole ordeal. Let us fight for our children's right for education!

    Previously a BASRC school about 50% of the staff have been trained to really work together. California standards are being taught. Has the best elementary school choir program in this district. Parent involvement fluctuates.

    Excellent in staff parent involvment on site before & after school latchkey program quality of academic programs up to speed with todays students several extracurricular activities among indivdual teachers and grades good parent involvement from both mom and dads and even grandparents structure on self esteem and motivation for students is great. Its good to know that a school as a child I attended is still going strong after all the years and was a most enjoyable experience for both me and my two kids who also attended this school for the full elementary years. Some of the teachers that taught me also taught my kids great learning tactics and teacher parent intervention.

    I've attended this school since kindergarten and just graduated last year in 2003. through the years this school has sadly gotten worse and worse. It started out as a school complete with GATE programs and great exracurricular activities.When I was in 6th grade the GATE program was completly cancled! Resulting in me being bored out of my mind and being able to get straight A's without even trying! Now the district is threatning to take away music pe and library teachers! Honestly speaking those programs were the only good things about that school.

    Please do not be misinformed about the 'GATE' program at this school. Anyone that attended the GATE meeting would have heard that the choice to mainstream GATE students was a district decision not the school's. As for the test scores...Standardized testing does not measure the whole child and does not measure academic performance. As the parent of a GATE child I am appalled to see test scores as a measure of a school's success. When applying for a job will the interviewer ask for your child's STAR score? One of the main things lacking from this school is parental involvement. Be part of the solution not the problem! Comparatively speaking this is one of the better schools in Hayward.

    I am very disappointed that the Gate program has been completely eliminated from this school. How can my child be challenged? My child is getting mostly A's in every subject and is bored. Challenge is needed for children that have been 'GATE' tested or they will suffer when going into the 'GATE' classes in middle school. I'm also very disappointed in seeing this schools State Test Averages in the 30% range when comparing them to other schools in the area which have the same english learning and income level. This school is capable of so much more.
