7/23/2010parentParent involvement & their financial support is what makes the value of your school. What your kids learn is actually what comes from support they get at home. Do not place blame on the school district, administration or teachers. After putting in 100's of hours as a volunteer at this school, it is clear there is no perfect school, but I can continue to be involved & write letters to the superintendent to express concerns about class size, curriculum&the finances.People love to blame others,instead of themselves. I see a lot of parents sitting in their cars wasting time when they could be helping in class. Every minute I help is money earned for the school- it keeps the teachers in class & not doing clerical tasks. I saw a teacher last year, take a day off (paid) to hire a sub for the class just to do paperwork.
3/29/2010parentTeachers teach to the test. If your child doesn't learn something ..that's your child's problem are the teacher's philosophy . They teach above the child's grade level and they must just do it not understand it. The resources are slim to none. There aren't music, art, nor gym classes. These poor kids are getting a poor education.
3/24/2010parentBoth our kids went to this school, one has moved on to middle school and the other still goes here and we really love this school. From the staff, teachers, parent involvement, it's a great experience.
2/26/2010parentI very much agree. Teachers put alot of work load on kids and parents. They teach above grade level and kids are burn out with alot of work. Teachers choose and push behind some kids.
2/23/2010parentI do not like Altamont Creek Elementary School at Livermore. The teachers does know what they are doing. Kids are burn out with way difficult homework, but they learn little. I feel teachers are teaching above the grade level, and kids are confused. The teachers themselves don't know the answers to some homework questions and their class are not will structred. The teachers do not go over the homework or test and they expect alot from kids. Teachers underestimate kids who are from different culture, and they push them behind or load them with more work that burn them out. I do not like livermore schools over all, I heard same complains from other parents. Also third graders and over have more than one teacher. Each teacher gave different review about a student and one does not agree with another, the school has leadership problem.
9/21/2009parentOur school has great students, teachers and parents! We increased our API our students love to learn and the teachers love to teach!
9/15/2009parentI am very impressed with the teachers at the school and the education my kids have received.
5/22/2009parentI have two kids attending this school. 1st grader and 5th grader. We love this school. Teacher and staff are both excellent.
8/10/2008parentObviously the school has had issues in the past but that ususally comes with newer schools. Now that the school is more settled, the staff as well as parent support seems to be running well. I have a 1st grader at the school and he absolutley loved school last year! His teacher even sent a postcard over the summer! I feel the staff went above parent expectation. I think Altamont is a great school! Parents need to be supportive and realize it takes a team to make a child learn...its not just the teachers resonsibility!
10/24/2005parentGreat teachers, excellent support from parents
3/31/2005parentOur daughter has been at this school for Kindergarten and first grade. We have been extremely satisfied with her progress and with the teachers. This is a wonderful school with alot of support from the PTA and the parents. Our daughter loves it and so do we as parents!
2/27/2005parentBoth my children started this school 4 years ago when they first opened and it has been the most dissapointing experience either one of them have ever had in their lives not to mention mine! I have no respect for any of the teachers with the exception of one who was very kind and understanding not to mentioned well educated in the field of teaching. The school is not a very orginized school and the school events leave a lot to be desired. The academics also leave a lot to be desired when the parents have to do more teaching than the teachers themselves do! As for safety, aside from where the parents park I do not believe that safety is a big concern to this school. All in all If I had another child about to enter school I can honestly say they would not be going to Altamont Creek.
12/6/2004parentClass sizes are too large - 4th and 5th grade. Chaos rules in my son's class but there are 32 students. I've heard other classes (with 32 students) are not chaotic. My son feels he doesn't get the time he needs from the teacher. He is quiet and when he asks for help he feels put off because other students need attention. As a result we have a math tutor for him. This is unfortunate, he should be learning from his teacher.
