This school is definitely a school that your kid should go to. This is the best school I've ever been to.

Egan provides a calm and comfortable place for most children. They focus on the API score. It fits in with the lifestyle of Los Altos. Pleasant and not so challenging. Few clubs and extra curricular activities. The teachers are competent and experienced but the school is not cutting edge. However for ...  Read more

Egan is a jewel of a school and a model of the public system for middle school.

Egan's culture is very respectful of the middle-schooler. The principal has hired a very strong staff that adhere to this culture. My daughter was well prepared for high school, especially in writing, math and science.

We had 3 students go through this school and it is the most outstanding middle school in the state. Most of this is due to the leadership of the principal Mrs Dyckman.

Quality of teachers is not homogeneous. Some are excellent. I found 7th grade English particularly weak. Mr Schneider's science, Mr. Rosen history, Ms. Beeman English are excellent. Team sport program are exteremely selective, there aren't many opportunities for not so good players.
