    "The school is in a great location in beautiful Redwood Shores. The administrative staff including the principal is not very competent. The teachers are average at best and the school rating is driven in a large part due to affluent parents who are able to provide after school enrichment through private offerings to supplement the mediocre program. The school is not gated and at a high risk of a major security incident given the violence we have sadly experienced in our nations schools."

    "I have two daughters there since K or 1st. One is finishing and we have been very pleased with the school. Most of the teachers are just excellent and consistently go above and beyond what I would expect. I'm surprised to read one girl had trouble making friends as it's a large group of diverse kids but all seem to be friendly and polite. The school makes a big effort to teach character and kindness. So many different ethnic backgrounds come together in a way I never would have expected. And the parent community is fantastic. So many parents dedicate an unbelievable amount of time to making the school excellent. In today's budget environment, the school would be bare bones if not for the parent contributions and involvement. I am so happy we saved our money and didn't send our children to private and instead enjoyed a great local community and neighborhood school."

    "I went to Sandpaper starting in the third grade, and I did not enjoy my experience there. I had trouble making friends. There are many cliques. The academic program was very challenging, which was the one redeeming quality for the school. The teachers were okay. Some were better than others. The start of the new SDC there turned out to be a complete disaster. My sister was enrolled in said class, and it was one mess after another. For two years the administration couldn't be bothered to hire a qualified teacher, and had an aid as an "Emergency Substitute". The principal didn't welcome the class, or even acknowledge they were there. The new class was pretty much invisible. At the end of the year, the PTA forgot her entire class from the yearbook."

    "Pretty good. Strong PTA. PTA seems to be driven by "select few" families. Environment is clean. Professional staff."

    "With high test scores and an API of more than 900, I am worried that our students are performing too high. Do you think I am kidding? High test scores and a highly stressful academic environment go hand=-in-hand. We don't want our kids throwing themselves on the train tracks like five Palo Alto students did these last 8 months, do we? Be happy. Take your children for weekend car trips. Enjoy family life."
