Welcome to Alamo Elementary!

Welcome to Alamo Elementary School.  Alamo is one of the original schools of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, located 35 miles East of San Francisco, tucked into the East Bay hills above the San Ramon Valley. Alamo School has changed in the past 25 years from a rural to a suburban school and ranks as one of the top performing schools in the County and State. Alamo School currently enrolls 320 students, with 19 instructional classrooms, including a computer lab, a science lab, instrumental and vocal music instruction, art instruction, an MPR and library. At present our API (Academic Performance Index) score is well above 900.

Alamo School's vision is to build a school environment that inspires its students to reach their fullest potential through instructional excellence, creative expression, respect for individual differences, a healthy lifestyle, and a commitment to enhancing the global community.  As students at Alamo School face the challenges of meeting rigorous State Standards and District Benchmarks, our caring learning community of teachers, Para educators, parents and other support staff are there to ensure success. Above all else, we encourage our students to strive for their "personal best."

Our staff of credentialed teachers collaborates weekly, sharing instructional strategies and examining student work to target areas of improvement and/or enrichment. Every classroom also has a parent-funded Para Educator who assists the teacher with daily instruction. Teacher specialists in the curricular areas of science, technology, physical education, and vocal and instrumental music, enhance and support the learning experience. We also provide special education services with an onsite resource teacher, speech therapist, occupational therapist, and school psychologist. Students enjoy weekly visits to the library, which is staffed with a library-media coordinator, and parent volunteers.

The partnership between home and school is invaluable and our PTA and Educational Fund lead the way. Generous family contributions and successful fundraisers augment educational programs and provide teachers with the tools they need to make Alamo Elementary a great place to be!  The State approved "Second Step" program is used weekly in our classrooms, as teachers provide lessons on building empathy, anger management and problem solving for our students.

Our dedicated staff, motivated students, and parent volunteers truly make Alamo Elementary an award winning school. We work hard to foster a student's desire to explore and make sense of their world and are committed to meeting the needs of all our students socially, emotionally, and academically. We are excited to have you as part of our team as we work together to meet the needs of all our learners.

Sincerely,

Stan Hitomi
