Read what parents are saying about Alvarado Elementary School
Our family is incredibly happy at Alvarado. Our daughter is thriving in the Spanish Immersion program; each one of her teachers has been a positive role model in her life; and she has a smile on her face every day after school. The students are fortunate to participate in several enrichment programs, including music, computers, library, as well as year-round art and science. Our new principal is a ray of sunshine and everyone enjoys kicking off the day with her and our teachers at morning circle. Last, but most certainly not least, we are also thankful for the kind, fun and thoughtful community at Alvarado. Friendships are vast and parents eagerly gather on a regular basis for volunteer and social events.

A wonderful, united, and involved parent community is an integral part of a great school, and Alvarado has this. Friendly, open-minded, and diverse, I am happy to be part of this group of kind people who are strong advocates for their children's education. Our new principal is communicative and a strong, quiet leader. Great experience overall, but more so int he past year since this new leadership has taken hold.

We have had an excellent experience at Alvarado. The student population is diverse, the parent community is welcoming and the PTA's desire to help provide extra learning opportunities (strong art program, computer lab, supplemented science, dance, music, new outdoor play spaces) makes this an enriching learning environment. Our daughter is thriving and we have a community we are happy to be a part of.
