why we started
WE ARE DRIVEN TO SPARK A LIFELONG LOVE
OF LEARNING IN ALL OF OUR STUDENTS.
Because we believe that every child is exceptional and has a right to cultivate and nurture his or her own unique interests and abilities. We treat each child as the individual that they are, individually.
Because we inspire children and staff to reach for their full potential in an environment that nurtures collaboration, mutual respect, civic responsibility & lifelong love of learning.
Because we are committed to continuously improving public education by providing students with an innovative, empowering and results-oriented learning environment that nurtures the whole child: Social, Emotional (dreams/passions), Physical, Mental (real-world problem solving, growth mindset)
Because we have an interconnected global education model that blends visual and performing arts with science and engineering, offering a well-rounded education. We have twice been named a California Distinguished School (2008 & 2014) for our signature STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) program.
Because we foster a culture of digital learning within our school so that our students think critically, behave safely and ethically, and participate responsibility in the digital world.
Because we offer an integrated World Language Program, the first of its kind in a Los Altos public school, with offerings in both Mandarin and Spanish.
