    I would not send my child here if you paid ME. There is too much poverty and the teachers have no control of their classrooms which would be directly related to the leadership of the school.

    My daughter is in mrs. Tellez & mrs. Lilly's k-1 class and she transferred there from hill rise and i can honestly say hands down it is the all around better school with the better teachers.

    I love Alameda. My son has been going there for 3 years and every teacher he has had has been wonderful! He loves school and he has fun. It is a safe and loving atmosphere. The principal is very involved and it shows everything seems organized and runs smoothly. It's a great school.
