Sending our kids to Claremont was a GREAT decision. Both of my kids have honestly loved middle school. They've learned a lot and they've made great friends. They hang around with nearby friends after school and have a lot of independence because of proximity to the school and their social life. They feel loved and known and cared for by the teachers and administrators. My current high school student gets misty when she passes by Claremont. She loved it so much.

I like the vice principal very much. He seems to know every kid's name and story. Unfortunately, the school has made zero effort to accommodate my child's learning needs & my child is begging for a new school. We will not be returning next year.

I love how the school is diverse, in many different was. This is the real world, teachers are willing to help the students. They have a new principal , Mr Mayor is doing a great job.

My son went from St. Paul's to Claremont in the 6th grade. He's now in 7th and LOVES this school. There's a wide range of kids, not the "pretend" diversity of the private schools, and the range of what's "acceptable" behavior for kids is more like real life, some real great and some not so. The teachers, many of them are young and some are newer, seem to really believe in the school and what they're doing. Mr. Mayer, the new principal since last year, is a genuine, thoughtful and exceptional person. We're very happy with our decision, and most of all, our son is thriving there academically and socially.

My son is 7th grade and loves his school. He said he likes Claremont "way more than Peralta" (his elementary school) which to me seemed like a hard act to follow. He is engaged in his classes and likes all of his teachers. Last year, he started also to blossomed there musically (Jazz Band) and athletically (Cross Country Club and Basketball team lead by the fabulous family of Doubley coaches). I find the instruction and academic level pretty high and love the sense of community at the school. Also the After Spot ( after school program) provides great variety of activities such as Skateboarding (hope Sailing is offered again next year). The school has great leadership , great teachers and great PTA. We are also in the process of planning and building new cafeteria and gym.
