Orinda is a very close knit community and if really shows at Glorietta. Parent fundraising/donations keep the class sizes down to 20 or less for K-3 and keeps programs like art and music alive after state budget cuts elminitated. The schools are the reason we moved to Orinda and we are so glad we did.

Our first of 3 is just finishing kindergarten at Glorietta and the experience has been terrific. The community of teachers and parents really care about the kids.
We have been at Glorietta for five years. An education at Glorietta is the equivalent of (if not better than) an expensive private school. The teachers 'go above and beyond the call of duty' on a daily basis. The Gorietta kids are WAY WAY WAY ahead of kids in other nearby school districts (such as Lafayette and Walnut Creek).
Recently recognized as a Distinguished School which is something all those with kids who attend already knew to be the case. The principal Ms. Loetterle is a strong and positive influence. There are wonderful families and terrific programs to benefit everyone. You won't find a finer school.
Incredible community school with outsized parent involvement. Great and diverse teaching staff music art P.E. and computer for every child.
My daughter with special needs attended Glorietta for three years. The teachers were excellent and loved their work as could be seen daily in the students' achievements and attitudes. Parent involvement was a highlight of this wonderful school. Teachers had frequent communications and were always welcome in the classrooms with their open door policy. No egos came before the students' development. Gains were made daily and self esteem was always promoted. Feelings were always taken into consideration and no favorites were taken. This is the best school that my daughter has ever attended. She is now 20 and the achievements that she made and the confidence she developed is evident. She was treated as an equal yet with compassion for her difficulties in various areas due to her neurological make up. I am forever thankful to her fabulous teachers Carol Meisal Terry Senna and Mr. Roberts and more! Generous and loving!
