Very good. This school is a bit different in terms of demographics versus the other elementaries in town. Out-of-district kids from East Palo Alto can opt to enroll here, many of whom come from much less-privileged backgrounds. The diversity that helps bring is invaluable and makes for a better community than just vanilla affluent kids.

Perhaps Heather was once a great school with low classroom numbers, but this scenario is part of the past. The class size is more like 23-25 and in some cases two class rooms put together. The teachers are very overwhelmed and do not have time to listen as they seem overworked and underpaid. The children who succeed here attend school all day, and then have their parents/tutors teach them the real material at night. When reading the reviews look at only the reviews after 2013 as now the school is impacted. Also notice the scores of the 2nd grade class in 2013.
