This fantastic school is a gem, with creative kids, fabulous parents, an active and inclusive PTA and a great PACE fundraising organization. Other public schools ask for a larger annual giving donation, and most families are happy to give more to Colfax. We completely love the school and are thrilled ...  Read more

Overcrowded and very "clickish" school with an unprofessional gosspy Principal and teachers. I expected. better. The PTA moms act like over privileged mean girls. The parent involvement includes gossiping and over asserting their agenda. I hear office staff moan and complain about a kids IEP and the ...  Read more

Great parental involvement. Nice touches like farm animals, and small gardens around campus, violin lessons for all and keyboards as part of the math program. But if you have a high achieving / gifted kid there is no special programs at all. No real GATE program. Zilch. You might luck out and get ...  Read more

I have 2 children who attend school at Colfax Charter. This school has heart! The teachers and support staff are phenomenal, the technology is on par with some of the most prestigious private schools around town and the parent volunteers define what it means to be a community!

I am a parent of 1 child who completed Colfax. And 1 child that is currently in 4th grade. The compassion and attention given to each child is unmatched. My 4th grader is special needs. They way the school as a whole looks out for him is amazing. As a father who worries on a daily basis for him to be ...  Read more

We relocated to California from Oregon December 2011 and missed the cutoff at Colfax, so my twins finished 1st grade at Riverside. My twins were at Colfax all of 2nd grade and will be starting 3rd grade next week. My son had some difficulty with reading and believe the move and starting over made things ...  Read more
