K-5, (Parkmead Active Learning School), Walnut Creek (There is also a Parkmead Community School = ''regular'' public K-5). We're in the Murwood area of Walnut Creek. There is a raffle to get your first child into PALS. We made it into PALS and I can't say enough good about their program.
Our two children (a boy and girl) both went through PALS, and all I can say is, it's the ''private school'' education I had, that I can't afford for my kids. A lot of it is parent participation (a contract of 60 hours for the whole year), but there were also field trips, older kids helping younger ones, two grades per classroom, great teachers and support staff and lots of other goodies, all within a ''public school''. Our kids had ''Allen bill'' classmates from up to 20 miles away.
They evaluated becoming a charter school, and decided against it.
Feel free to email me with any further questions. Bob
