    "I'm taking my kids out of Phoebe Hearst Elementary and placing them in a more diverse and supportive school. If your child is very competitive and confident they may thrive here. If you value lots of homework you may like this school. If you child is sensitive and may need additional help look elsewhere. The Principle at PH is not fair in his discipline and not understanding for kids that don't fit in the academically rigorist school. I did like all of the teachers my kids had but the office manager and principle were not flexible and the parent community seemed competitive."

    "This is a very academic school. Because there is a GATE program, it obviously draws many competitive parents here. My son is doing well there and went to the GATE program after being identified at first grade. My daughter is in Kindergarten and hates school. The teachers at this school are NOT warm. You will not be rewarded by a 'warm community feel' here. A lot of 'tiger moms'. My wife and I wanted to give public school a try, and even though the school is strong academically, we fear they will beat the love of learning our of our children. They get excellent scores on their test scores, because that is all they do. Go to the playground and watch the kids. There is not a lot of what you would expect in a regular elementary school. Kids dragging around backpacks that are 3 times their size with a flat expression on their faces. As we believe education is a long road for our little ones, we felt this is not the most enriching environment. If you can afford a private education and are debating whether you should give the public system a chance, we did, we were not impressed. We are pulling our children out."

    "My daughter enrolled at Phoebe Hearst mid year of 1st grade. Her teacher Ms. Auge is AMAZING! She really helped Madison acclimate to classroom and Madison was in full pace with her peers by 3rd quarter. The staff, principal, and teachers are truly a community. Not to mention the support that the fellow parents provide is unmeasured. I would highly recommend this school to any parents that values their child's education."

    "Phoebe Hearst has been a great fit for our diverse(2 inter-racial Dads with a bi-racial son) family. Aside from academics being a priority, we equally impressed knowing that the school was a big advocate and supporter of anti-bullying initiatives. Our son was one of the first Kindergarten classes in 2012 and he loved it. He is now in the first grade and loves it too. The Principal and school staff are very attentive and demonstrate genuine concern for the students. Parents are very involved as well which helps create a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone."

    "Awesome school! Our son transferred to Phoebe Hearst (2nd grade) from a private school. Our worries were quickly put to rest when we found that parents are very involved in school activities and their students education. As a whole, the kids and their parents are respectful and considerate. The principal and teachers do a great job - especially considering the super high student:teacher ratio. Kids are eager to go to school and the environment encourages learning. Test scores are really good but this can be explained easily. Phoebe Hearst is a GATE feeder school so many of the top students in reading, math and science go to this school. There are a lot of ex-private school families. Most of the parents we talk to are really happy with PH. That said, each child has different needs and the classroom environment is largely influenced by the teacher, students, parents and overall tone set by the principal. The high student:teacher ratio means that parents have to really engage with their kids to make up for any lack of personalized attention that the teachers cannot provide. Looking forward to a great 3rd grade experience this school year."
