    "I have an 8th grader at Claremont, as well as an older child that graduated from Claremont several years ago. Both of my kids have always had a positive, rich experience, and this year has been the smoothest, calmest start to a year ever. The administrators and teaching staff are hitting the ball out of the park. My child has wonderful friends from every part of Oakland, is doing great academically, and the Claremont community works hard to try make an environment that supports every child at the school. Really, things are going just great!"

    "My daughter is a sixth grade student who graduated from Chabot. She has always been a very serious and successful student. So far she is having a great experience at Claremont. We were worried and sad when the Richardsons left an administrative void last spring, but Mr. Mayer, his fantastic vice principal, Ms. Coleman, and the teacher on special assignment, Mr. Smith, have all worked together to whip things into shape and carry on with the positive momentum at this school. My daughter has two "core" teachers: one is brand new and one has a few years in at Claremont. They are both enthusiastic, energetic, inspiring, and effective. She is challenged and happy. My daughter also loves her art elective, and I am very pleased that Claremont has re-created its music program and instituted a Spanish elective. My daughter walks to and from school. She exercises a lot of independence, and she is really owning her experience. Attending Claremont lets our family stay connected to our neighborhood and our community. The parent community is wonderful too - dedicated, community-minded, and committed to making public education work for all kids. Loving it!"

    "My son is a 7th grader this year, and an alum from Chabot. He had a great year last year - straight A's, advanced on the CST's (no drop from Chabot), and made some good friends - thanks to good principals, strong teaching staff, and the good community. This year is going even stronger, except for gym. He really likes the design thinking and making class and the enrichment wheel, both unique to Claremont. His favorite subject is Algebra. Fortunately, the Mr. Richardson's believe in offering math at different levels. Algebra has proven to be very challenging, but he likes a challenge. We are very pleased with Claremont and feel honored to be part of the vibrant Claremont community."

    "My daughter is an 8th grader at Claremont and has enjoyed her time here. Not many fellow students from Chabot came to Claremont with her and we did have a bumpy first year with the administration roller coaster ride. However, since the Richardsons came on board last year as co-principals (no more asst. principal) things have really turned around. School culture, academic rigor, increased parent participation, teamwork among the teachers. It hasn't all been because of them, but they have led the entire community to make the changes. My daughter is a high achiever and looking forward to AP classes at Oakland Tech. She feels the majority of her teachers have challenged her to learn what she needs to be a success at the next level. Claremont has students that come from all over OUSD and not just the nearby schools with so much support. It has been inspiring to watch the teachers and administrators accept ALL children into the fold and work to bring them up to a higher level of achievement, not just the kids with parents who are involved. My daughter has enjoyed the extra-curriculars like Math Counts and Running Club. I have enjoyed the engaged parent community."

    "My daughters last year tears! When she first began there it was Extremely scary. The assistant principal was great! The teachers were Awesome except her art teacher! Anywho! Now the Co-Principals have made me wish I was in school again. They communicate with Parents and children in a Positive way always. I always hear how we'll my child is doing from teachers,librarian,office staff,nurses and the security guards! I know my child can be a handful she's the baby of the family! However the Claremont Middle School remains so Positive! I help out at the school when I can! The security guards speak to the children as if they were young adults! They know the children names. I feel so Blessed to have them! I never hear them shout! They walk are run lol! To the children and speak to them. I heard one shout as he approach child for safety purpose only! He first called out to the gym teacher. Then he got closer called out the child his shoe laces were all over the place and the child was going to trip. It was so caring. I wish I could take the staff to my child's High School!"
