The reviewer below who advised that SH isn't a good school for kids with discipline or personality issues has it wrong. Public schools are required to serve ALL children in the district, including those with special needs. Parents who do not want their children in a diverse learning environment are ...  Read more

although sleepy hollow school isn't perfect, it is probably the best public school that i can imagine. the new principal dr. G has been a huge improvement over prior, and some weak teachers have moved to other schools. the parents are involved and many give of their time as well as money. most of ...  Read more

I'm sorry to agree with previous posters that there is a certain amount of "resting on their laurels" that is apparent at Sleepy Hollow and the teachers are universally nice but not a lot of innovation or motivation to change. We found there to be very little differentiation, or any tolerance for differentiating ...  Read more

Unfortunately, I agree with the negative comment of Dec 5, 2008. I am afraid that the smaller school is more impacted by an entrenched bureaucracy of tenured teachers who have lost their enthusiasm, and have become lazy.

Sleepy Hollow is a sweet small school where everyone knows each other and the teachers are outstanding. Are you expected to donate to the school to support it? Yes, but it is well worth the cost. While other schools have had to give up small class sizes and instructional aides, SH has managed to hang ...  Read more

Facilities mediocre, staff unhelpful, defensive and overly full of how great Orinda schools are supposed to be. My daughter's teacher is unimaginative and does not read kids well. This teacher made an enthusiastic learner hate school in no time. They push an alarming amount of the instruction load ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
