I moved to Palo Alto from Europe in June and I was lucky to have my son accepted at the Spanish Immersion Program at Escondido. He is in second grade. I can say that, hands down, this is the best school my son has ever attended. He attended two private schools in Europe and I have never encountered the level of professionalism, support, and care for children that I witness at Escondido every day. I have studied and visited schools all over the world. From this vantage point, I can say that my son's teacher is fabulous: Experienced, dedicated and knowlegeable. She adores her children and keeps a very close eye on their needs and progress. The administrative staff and the Principal are extremely responsive, easy to deal with and "on the ball". Escondido provides a safe, age-appropriate environment where children can thrive academically and developmentally. My son is HAPPY at school. Every day! Children cannot learn if they are not happy. He loves his teachers and classmates and I know that he is in the best possible hands. I highly reccomend Escondido as a most solid, caring, professional establishment where children can achieve their best in every aspect of their lives.
This is a great school. The principal is awesome - she really listens to parents, and does a great job balancing the needs of teachers and parents while always remembering that our kids come first. The teaching staff, though not always 100% able to accommodate the needs of each student (possibly because of dictates from the school district - like using the dreaded Everyday Math), is super dedicated and hard-working, and you really couldn't ask for a more involved community of parents! We are very happy at Escondido.
Parents should chose this school if they want a good basic education, lots of enrichment and field trips, and a warm caring parent/teacher community. The Spanish Immersion program is an absolute gem. They will teach your child to reach and speak Spanish even if you do not know the language at all. If you can get into this program, you will be giving your child the gift of a lifetime. The principal is new this year, but she seems to be well liked.
My kids were studying in Vargas (Sunnyvale), Escondido and now in Los Alamitos (San Jose) Elementary schools. Escondido was our favorite. The kids there come from all over the world and they have a lot of fun. The staff at Escondido is wonderful and everyone loves the principal. My girls still remember fondly all their teachers.
