    "Although a review will spill the secret...I do think this is one of the best kept secrets in Castro Valley. We have a small student population, a great dedicated staff of teachers, a vibrant parent community and an environmental treasure for on site learning - our creek. In a time of budget cuts and declining education, I feel privileged to call Palomares our home school."

    "My daughter came from another distinguished CV school but there's a total diffference with the principal, teachers and parents from this school. Iam highly impressed and looking forward to this school year..."

    "We feel so lucky to have found this school. My son started Kindergarten here and loves it. Being a child who thrives in nature, the school setting is perfect for him. Situated next to a creek in the forested canyon, it feels as if your child is attending summer camp everyday. And the quality of education is excellent. The school is small enough to offer individual attention to every student and parent involvement is very active. Perks you usually only find at expensive private schools. This school is a hidden gem!"

    "There is a strong sense of community at Palomares Elementary, including parents, teachers and students, and an unparalleled (in my experience) devotion to education - not just excellent academics, but about life and being a responsible person."

    "This small school is in such an idyllic setting and has very a collaborative work environment. The school has its own organic garden and children walk past an interpretive nature trail on their way to and from the school site. Parent participation in very high, especially in the primary grades. One of the things that impressed me the most was how comfortable the kindergarten students felt with their classmates' parents. The active participaters reach out to the kids from more troubled homes. Currently there is no cafeteria, but this new building is also nearing completion. There se good options for providing sports activities after school including a winning girls volleyball team. The principal is in her first year at Palomares, but she appears to be a hands-on, take charge problem solver."
