    My son has gone to this school from 1st grade to 5th grade and year after year he's had just the best most dedicated teachers. They are all so passionate and hard working. Since Spanish is his second language he always needs a little extra help and every year the teachers stay late with him (and others) who need a little help. I am just so grateful to the wonderful teachers and administrators and glad we have this school in our community.

    I couldn't be happier with Adelante. Community is tight and cooperative and the staff are engaged and motivated. My kids are bi-literate and happy to go to school.

    We have been extremely pleased with Adelante. Great teachers helpful staff and involved parents make this school great. Our kids are getting a robust education while learning a second language something that has been shown to a multitude of cognitive benefits.

    My two children go to Adelante and it has been a positive experience for both of them. I feel they are getting a top notch education in a wonderfully enriching environment. The PTO is extremely active making Adelante not your typical public school. I would highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a high caliber bilingual education.

    I have graduated from Adelante and must I say it was such a great experience. For the record Adelante has won two California distinguished awards and do compare to north star. The difference is we are an all inclusive school and north star is a school for "smart people" who test in. I wonder why their grades are better than all the other schools! If you want your child to have a great education and become culturally aware send them to Adelante.

    My son will be completing the first grade and has loved his past two years at Adelante. As parents we have loved being part of a bilingual program and seeing our son learn a second language and appreciate another culture. We have seen an amazing amount of parent participation for events and everyday classroom activities and have taken advantage of the opportunities to assist in the class weekly. The principal is excellent and is present at all events always with a smile. I would highly recommend this school for anyone wishing to have their children be a part of a strong program.

    I love this school because parents have an opportunity to be involved with their student's learning experience. They are also always looking for ways to raise money to provide the students with programs and activiites.

    They promote togetherness. The kids seem to really take a liking to each other and it brings together at an early age Spanish first speakers and English first speakers.

    Adelante is a wonderful multi-cultural experience for K-6th graders. The unique and frankly rare trait of this school is how involved the students and parents are in the day-to-day classroom activities. The excitement is contagious and moves from the classroom to the home with every family. That's the best description of Adelante A Family.

    Our children are learning so much at Adelante. They learn Spanish so quickly...it's just amazing. The teachers are wonderful and really care about the children and their education.

    I am so pleased to have my child at this awesome school! My daughters teachers have been wonderful and I hear good things about all the other teachers too. In addition to kids getting the added value of bilingual and bi-literate education the focus at the school on creating one community pays off in establishing really good relationships between the children. Parent involvement contributes a lot to this school in the classroom providing opportunities for kids to get more individual attention; putting on enriching events like science night spelling bee etc.; and raising money to bring PE dance science and other programs to the school. I highly recommend this school.
