Alamo is a school with a fantastic staff, friendly families, and a wonderful sense of community. They really care about the "whole child". We feel incredibly fortunate to be here.

I decided to play the public school roulette and had Alamo as my first choice. And we WON!! 14 months in I couldn't be happier. The Principal Fong, is very visible and approachable and truly cares about moving Alamo ahead and keeping it a strong school. Very well run school.

Many moons ago I went to Alamo! Imagine how proud I am that my first grader is walking a mile in my shoes and experiencing what I had first hand! I love Alamo, its teachers and am surrounded by parents who are as involved as I am!

Alamo's motto is "be a friend". They empower each student to be kind to others and to find joy in learning. The dedication of the teachers is absolutely amazing. This urban school has a great and involved community as well. My son asks me most days if we can get to school early!
