    Heather is a fantastic school with a wonderful and supportive learning environment. We have had three children attend Heather over the years and it has been a positive experience throughout. Parent involvement is welcomed by teachers and staff.

    The principal makes a school and the current one that has been at Heather for over 10 years is excellent. She is a no-nonsense no BS administrator who is thorough and knows her job well. The teachers are excellent and very caring and the community is very supportive. Parents volunteer when they can and are very involved. That is a sign of a great school when the community is fully engaged in their kids' education.

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Heather. We moved here last year and didn't know a single family. They didn't an incredible job introducing new families and giving us opportunities to mingle. My boys thrived and loved their teachers.

    We moved to San Carlos in 2008 and lived there till end of summer 2011. We miss the heather school as a whole family. My Son was there from K1 to Grade 2. What a great school what a great community. We love everything about it my son was crying for a week since we moved out of the country in 2011 of course only because he was missing his school and his friends. Such a welcoming school and community. We miss you Heather and San Carlos. Also we wanna give kudos to San Carlos Education Foundation for their relentless efforts.

    We are so impressed at the caliber of teachers and the highly involved generous parent community at Heather. It is even more impressive given that the state keeps slashing school funding.

    Heather provides a great learning environment for children. It both challenges and supports them as they navigate their early school years.

    Heather School offers caring dedicated highly motivated teachers and staff. Differentiated teaching allows all kids to thrive. The school has a great library (and librarian!) wonderful programs (PE Music Art in Action and the parent community is outstanding! The only thing that could make Heather a better school would be less budget cuts. We all contribute in some way to make up for the losses!

    Lovely campus stellar teachers a fierce principal and a devoted and generous parent community make this a winner -- ESPECIALLY given the horrific funding situation facing California schools (the state currently ranks about 46th per pupil in terms of state funding per student).

    Impressive leadership; motivated and involved parent community; smart and engaged teachers; we transferred from a private school and are very impressed with the quality of instruction. In addition kids have so many opportunities to attend fun and interesting events sponsored by the school and the PTA. Our child is really thriving here and loves this school.
