Washington Elementary School (Alameda, CA)
Re: Seeking Info on Alameda Elementary Schools
Welcome to Alameda! After 2 years in private school where my son fell behind, we toured a dozen schools in the area and selected our neighborhood school; Washington. 4 years later, I am so glad we did. The teachers are very experienced, the class sizes are small (18 for 4th, 27 for 5th), and the community is great! The most important thing is to arrange a private tour where you can observe actual classes in session, to find the right match for your child. My then very active going- on-7 year old fell in love with the ex-theater performer teacher, who knew how to hold their attention. He has thrived with heavy emphasis on hands on science, and reading skill appropriate books picked by the students (he's reading a graphic novel a day now.) Don't wait for round up, any school worth attending won't mind you observing an hour or 2 of class. Drop in on a PTA meeting for you perspective school to see what current families say. Good luck with your choice. Annie
