Read what parents are saying about Teach Elementary School
We chose to send all our children to Teach for a multitude of reasons, but the primary one was the accelerated, project based learning. Our children went from restless and being told they couldn't "read books above grade level because it makes other kids feel bad" to encouraged to excel. The hands on learning, numerous walks to Cal Poly, electives, and creativity encouraged at Teach allows students to thrive. At our home school the lack of ethnic diversity was both stifling and stressful. As an ethnic minority we found numerous incidents of racism, and although they were addressed by the teachers. At Teach we found much more diversity with students of all colors, many of whom spoke a second (or even third) language at home. Teach is a valuable resource for the SLO community, and we are looking forward to seeing the program grow in the years to come.

I would not recommend this school. The staff at the school are more worried about test scores than the actual progress and well rounded education of each individual student. There are very few students of color, no community outreach, the teachers struggle to even respond to parent emails, the general organization of the school is chaotic. Keep your child in your neighborhood school. They will receive a much better education. There are also rumors that Teach will close down in the next few years due to budget cuts.

My son has had an amazing experience at Teach School. It is an accelerated learning environment where Teachers & Staff have high expectations for students. The Teach community (teachers/staff, parents, and Cal Poly/community partnerships) provide additional learning opportunities such as Innovation & Exploration Initiative projects, STEAM electives, LEGO(R) MINDSTORM(R) robotics programming, extended overnight science study trips for all grade levels, 6th grade play and attendance at Performing Arts Center performances.

I went to Teach back in 1963, I remember Mrs. Bucy s class of Square dance and how wonderful it was then. I now live in South America, on an island called Margarita in the caribbean sea.

Incredibly successful program. Students are encouraged to and given the tools to excel. My daughter not only performs outstandingly, but is also truly enjoying being at school and learning.
