    Walter Hayes is a good school. In California. You have teachers here who are well compensated and very accomplished. In my opinion, that doesn't exactly translate to being awesome. We went to this...

    9 Herbert Hoover Elementary School

    Hoover has been a fantastic experience for both of our children. Initially we felt intimidated that the school has a very high Asian population, and that our kids may not fit in. This is quite the...

    This school was a disappointment to us as well. The curriculum is inconsistent across teachers. There is lack of classroom discipline and consistent teaching of the core areas by some teachers. I did...

    9 Ardis G. Egan Junior High School

    I read these reviews when we were looking for a house a few years ago and I have to say I feel snookered by these sunny (and frankly, delusional) assessments of the school. Most of the wonderful...

    8 David Starr Jordan Middle School

    3 principals in 3 years meant complete chaos, with the principals declining in competence with each hire. The latest/current principal is an ignorant, unexperienced, arrogant wicked witch who loves to...

    8 Menlo-Atherton High School

    This shows results for students with disabilities on a Science test given once a year. Big differences may suggest that some student groups are not getting the support they need to succeed.
