    My child started Kindergarten last year and I am amazed at the education he has received at Redding. The teachers (and Principal) are top notch and very involved. They are always willing to discuss my child's education and social development. The teachers always respond to my questions and concerns and I feel they truly care about his education. Walking through the halls and seeing the children's artwork and poetry is truly a wonderful experience. The morning and after school program through ACE are also amazing. I see an incredible dedication from the staff faculty and volunteers.

    This school is a hidden gem. Inside its plain red brick exterior is an experienced stable and dedicated staff working under the guidance of a skilled trilingual principal in what is truly as their motto says "a community of joyful lifelong learners". My favorite thing about the school is its diversity. Children from families of all ethnic backgrounds and many countries attend Redding working and playing peacefully together appreciating their differences if they notice them at all. Redding graduates have gone on to succeed in San Francisco's and California's best schools and universities. The school is a safe happy stimulating place for children to grow both intellectually and socially.

    BEST SCHOOL IN SAN FRANCISCO VERY MULTI CULTURAL PRINCIPAL IS VERY DEDICATED STAFF IS VERY COOPERATIVE.NICE LOCATION.GREAT AFTER HOUR PROGRAMS

    If you send your child to Redding you will find high academic standards dedicated teachers nice parents and possibly the best after school program in the district. However if your child gets bullied expect assurances from administration no lasting results and even partial blame against the victim. The favorite excuse is parental involvement but the legal responsibility is on the school. Recess is chaotic at best with only enough playground equipment to fight over. Basically it s a crapshoot. If it goes well you ll be thrilled. But if it s not you might find yourself very much on your own.

    Redding School was just as I remembered it when I attended years ago. A dedicated group of staff committed to educating and inspiring children. The teachers are always willing to go an extra mile to help students achieve higher goals. And the principal Ms. Lo is always happy to discuss questions and or concerns with parents. Elementary schools begin the foundation of learning and Redding does an excellent job of preparing its students. It is located in a very nice neighborhood and they have a large upper yard for P.E. activities. I was so happy when my son was accepted. Everyday I watch him eagerly get up for school and come back chatting about what he learned that day! It was a great decision to bring him here and we can't wait for his siblings to follow as well!

    Redding Elementary is a fantastic school! My daughters both attend the school and are challenged by the academics and the enrichment that the school offers them. The teachers and staff are warm and supportive towards our family. I feel so fortunate to have our children in our neighborhood school so we can volunteer often and be a part of the school community. Redding Elementary is the hidden gem in San Francisco that we were so lucky to find.

    Redding is a great school and my child loves it there. She has a great relationship with her kindergarten teacher. Her teacher is always greeting me with a warm smile. The principal is wonderful and they have teachers who care. The school is diverse and has exposed my child to new cultures and that is one of the many things I was hoping to get out of this school. The class sizes are small and my child has made many friends. I am a very active parent and volunteer often. My child loves it here and that makes me happy.

    Redding Elem. is known as a 'hidden gem.' Inside this red brick building you'll find a diverse dynamic community of lifelong joyful learners! As the new site administrator I've enjoyed working with our students staff families and community members. We have an extremely dedicated staff of teachers who really care about the success and growth of each individual child. Our school has been referred to as the 'flagship for the arts ' and students continue to benefit from working with professional artists. In fact visitors often comment that our walls display high quality art connected to literacy and other content areas. We work closely with parents and believe in a strong home-school partnership. We take parent concerns seriously and foster a safe positive learning environment. Our partnerships with other businesses organizations and schools provide fun educational-enrichment activities for all of our students.

    Students don't keep their hands to themself and teacher nor the principal does anything about it. Some students are BIG bulls and never seem to get in trouble for it. Seems after the STAR testing the children don't learn anything else total free for all

    Principal talks about 'art' a lot but I haven't seen any art on the walls that didn't look like busy work for the students. There are no special activities or programs for students.

    Strong commitment to the learning of the children.

    My child is just entering kindergarten so my experience at Redding is as a teacher/consultant not a parent. Redding is a dynamic school with a solid. dedicated staff and fine principal. They bring in a host of arts-based programs and the school really pulls together and celebrates its incredibly diverse student population.
