    Excellent School. The teachers are so committed and works very hard in this school. They make each and every kid enjoy the school homework reading time what not?. My daughter loves to go to School and loves her teacher. She has been going to this school last three years.

    Everything about this school exceeds my expectation. My kindergartener is very happy with her class and teacher and she's always very motivated to do her homework. She does them before I even get a chance to view them! School created a positive learning environment for her which is carried over to the home. I am certain the next years will be great ones.

    Excellent teachers. My daughter is currently in 4th grade. She loves her teacher so much. she does not want to take a single day off even when she is sick. She is extremely motivated by her teacher that she wants to put in her 110% effort in all of her school work. I'm really happy that she is in Mohr school.

It has great environment starting with an outstanding Principal great and dedicated staff amazing PTA and such a diverse cultural experience. Mohr School provides highest quality of academic program along with enriching outdoor and music program.

    A great school. The parent involvement is unbelievable. The principal is intimidating and not very approachable from a kid standpoint but he is incredibly dedicated to that school

    My son has spent 6 wonderful years here. The teachers are dedicated to teaching each and every student regardless of ability. With an internationally diverse population the principal and teachers have been able to meet the needs of ESL learners as well as gifted students. The school also provides a strings program for 4th and 5th graders as well as band program for 5th grades. The PTA is highly involved in providing extracurricular art science and geography programs and supporting the academic body. Parent involvement is very high and very much appreciated by the faculty. An all around amazing school we will miss all the dedicated teachers and staff as we move on.

    We moved and our children were lucky enough to attend this school. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. We have two children in Resource and couldn't ask for a better experience.

    We love Mohr Elementary! If only we could find a large enough home in the area we would never leave. My oldest child has attended K-5th. We have nothing but great things to say about the teachers the parents the Principal the PTA etc. Your child can count on excelling here where learning is fun and challenging but very rewarding.

    This is a great school. There is a lot of parent involvement. Both my daughter and son went there. Teachers are caring and school is very safe.

    I heard this elementary is one of the top 10 elementary schools in the nation. I have visited the school and all teachers are very nice. It is also in a park-like setting which I think it is important to young kids.

    Excellent principal who runs the school with the standards of high-quality private school. Teachers are a well-seasoned mix of young and old who able to teach and manage their students well. The teachers we have interacted with were very responsive to the needs of high-achievement students and would substitute more challenging work after they have assessed the student's ability. City of Pleasanton managed its local finances wisely and frugally so the school is less impacted by the current state deficit. GATE program is still in its development and refinement stages but most parents seem to give their children a GATE-like experience at home anyway. Parental involvement tends to be high.
