We are part of the San Mateo-Foster City School District and a member of the American Montessori Society. As a public magnet school, we offer an alternative curriculum designed to meet all California state educational standards.

Hour of Code is coming!
Seeking Volunteers December 8-12
The Hour of Code introduces every student in grades 2-8 to computer programming through a fun, self-guided tutorial. We need volunteers to answer questions while the children participate. We anticipate an hour or two of preparation, and one hour of classroom time for each class you can help. No computer programming experience is needed (but if you know some coders, please encourage them to come and share their experience!). Please join us to get volunteer hours and have fun!
