As a parent who has first-hand, hands-on experience with the principal, I can say that I have the utmost respect for her. She is forthcoming about the workings of the district and really works hard at complex budget and diversity issues. She has also been inspiring as she has led us through a cross-town move and difficult delays in the construction of our new school building. The best part is that she inspires the teachers and they are happy to work for her, as far as I can see.I agree with the teacher review that said there are unique challenges at Glenview because of its diversity, especially its economic diversity, but my kids have really come to have a different worldview than I can just teach at home. As the second-most diverse elementary school in Oakland, it really represents Oakland, and that's why we live here. Our cousins who live behind a gate in Pleasanton and go to a public school will never acquire the empathy tools and real-world coping skills that my children are getting in elementary school. I thought they went to a diverse preschool, but I now see just how limited that view was. A lot of schools have some token diversity, but Glenview is the real deal.All the teachers we've had have been great -- and caring. We had an incident in kindergarten that some might label as bullying, but it was dealt with in a satisfactory way to us with restorative justice, and we haven't heard of any incidents with that child since. Anything negative I can think of stem from the school district. OUSD needs to do better! Luckily we have principal who can stretch a dollar and a very involved PTA and parent community that cares about more than academics and supports enrichment like technology, music, PE, art, and more.
