    "Alvarado is an amazing school. The students treat each other kindly, the parents are incredibly involved, committed participants and fundraisers, and the teachers are dedicated, talented and top-notch educators. We love Alvarado!"

    "Excellent public school in a great neighborhood. Strong leadership/Principal, very good teachers, compassionate and supportive community. Fantastic after school program (GLO) with enrichment and sports. Lots of fun PTA clubs (chess, knitting , skateboarding etc). Love morning circle- where principal , teachers, parents make school announcements - great way to feel a part of the community. Lots of money raised through PTA. Families encouraged to participate to school thru volunteering (and/or financial support). And everyone is invited to share their gifts and talents with the students or in the community We have a daughter who graduated from Alvarado and is graduating from middle school, and a son graduating from the fifth grade. We will all miss Alvarado and feel fortunate to have been a part of this great school !"

    "One of the best public K-5s in San Francisco. Great teachers, involved parents and fantastic kids. Raises an incredible amount of money through the PTA and the quality of education and experience for the kids is superb."

    "We have been pleased with many aspects of our daughter's education at Alvarado. Overall, we feel Alvarado has an excellent cadre of teachers who are well qualified and care about their students. Especially, parents' involvement is remarkable at Alvarado, what has led to a strong and vital PTA. A bit more emphasis on creativity based education, in my opinion, would push this school into the outstanding range."

    "My son will be graduating in May '14 and we will be sad to leave Alvarado! He has had experienced, caring teachers each year, and has loved the PTA-sponsored after-school clubs, especially chess. Teachers in the lower grades are nurturing, just what you want for the wee one's first few years of school. There are literacy breakfasts in Kinder (wear your pj's!), including breakfast, and a take-home book. My son was in a 4/5 split class last year, and was sufficiently challenged, with several written reports assigned, which students presented in front of the class (parents too). While I wouldn't say it's racially diverse (really just Caucasian and Latino), it is most certainly economically diverse. Is it perfect? No such thing IMHO...but Alvarado is a very good example of a high-functioning urban public school."
