    great bilingual school excellent staff and students i like the fact that they have to wear uniforms and the teachers too! great learning environment its a small school so everyone knows your child!

    Now in its sixth year Esperanza Elementary in Oakland is a dual-immersion program. Native English and Spanish speakers learn together in the same classroom. In K-2 literacy and math are taught in Spanish; science and social studies in English. In 3-5 it is the opposite. The school is located in a low-income area with many of the associated challenges but as a teacher there last year I must say that it is a gem of a school with a smart dedicated hard-working staff and wonderful children.
