21 Parent Reviews for Loma Prieta Elementary School

We moved our daughter from a well known private school in downtown Los Gatos to Loma two years ago. Honestly, we were a little worried at first. But the truth is she's doing better here, by far, than she was doing there. I firmly believe she's learning more, and at a faster rate! I couldn't be happier! ...  Read more

I absolutely adore this school. We moved here from Texas and toured schools prior to buying our home. Of the three schools we toured in Los Gatos, this one won our heart. The principal took an hour out of her day (it was the day of Jogathon - one of the school's primary fundraisers and a fabulous ...  Read more

3 days to school starts and the school calls letting us know that our daughter will not be able to start kindergarten and that she will instead be on a different campus 15 minutes away at a different school, with a different teacher in a different grade.

Very good school but teacher effectiveness will always be limited by public school classroom size. Due to this, they have little ability to handle kinesthetic learners.

Principal turned teacher morale and the student test scores around, and increased accountability all around. Better quality than our private school was at a teenie fraction of the cost (purchase of something at a gala fundraiser - a deal!)

Since the principal took over a couple of years ago Loma has come on leaps and bounds. All the staff are good, but many are outstanding. The school is friendly and effectively crime free. Such a wonderful school

Great place for kids to be kids and get a great education. Small classes, teachers that really care about getting the students involved. Close knit community with kids and the schools being a top priority.

The Principal Cory Kidwell, the teachers, the staff, every person involved in this school does an amazing job. They know your name, they know your child and they know what's going on at home and how it may affect your child. Children are taught respect for themselves, for each other and for the environment. ...  Read more

Loma and CT are great, especially under the leadership of the new principal Kidwell and board. Morale has improved significantly among parents and teachers, and they are striving to make teachers do the best for the kids. Private school environment in a public school.
