    "Transitional kindergarten here is play-based, but the academic progress of our child was as impressive as the social skills gained. Parents love this school for its pretty seamless diversity; the personalized attention allowed by its small size; the pastoral feel of its creek and playgrounds (though near a busy intersection); and its late start time. Normal-hearing students get well acquainted with the deaf student community. Principal Audrey Amos is receptive and level-headed. The PTA is of course smaller than other zoned schools, and succeeds based on deep commitment from those willing to step up. They do seem entrenched in traditions that are working well. Communications could be better with the transitional K High-5 classroom, but this was its first year so improvements are surely on the way. Support for parental involvement in reading is encouraging."

    "We have a kindergartner at John Muir and love the grounds, the community, the extras, and the care with which our child is taken care of."

    "John Muir is a wonderful small school with a beautiful campus, high quality teachers and principal, a great (private) after school program (Kids in Motion) and a dedicated core parent group. We can only hope that BUSD does not screw it up. JM needs better outreach to parents and families who do not live nearby (many are bussed in), an in-home tutoring program particularly for poorer African American and Sp. language kids, who still exhibit a strikingly stubborn achievement gap, and a higher percentage (50%) of neighborhood admits (now kept by BUSD to below 12% of applicants, which drives too many middle class Berkeley families into private schools). Allowing more of a neighborhood preference would foster a stronger sense of community, with consequent better parental involvement, better student peer modeling and more money. This should be combined with a diversity program that focuses on actual diversity, and not political favoritism and cheating in admissions by Oakland and Richmond residents."

    "Thanks to the teachers, program and atmosphere there, my granddaughter thinks learning, especially reading, is 'cool'."
