Edna Maguire Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

This is our first year at Edna - we transferred from another public school in the Bay Area. As far as public schools go, I’m not sure it gets any better than Edna! Super active community that creates lots of opportunities for interaction between parents, kids, and parents / kids. Great school-wide events like Garden Faire, talent show, Maker Night, Mustang stampede. Parties and outings for parents. Dance, chorus, orchestra, art, field trips — not all schools get such a wide range of offerings. The campus is big and updated, with a great garden with animals. My kid’s teacher is excellent, both nurturing and in control. Class size is about 24 kids, despite how big the school is. We get a lot of support here. It’s progressive in its approach to teaching with later start times, homework policy, social emotional education, technology, and safety measures. Highly recommend.

I caution any single parents raising children alone not to move to the Mill Valley School District.You will be bullied by Moms and Staff. This is a very high income area with a lot of wannabees. There is a horrible gossip network with a lot of sensationalism, teachers and particularly the principal get involved. Small town so if they start, it goes everywhere. Really bad experience as a middle class working Mom raising kids alone.

We just got back from 1st grade Back to school night. I feel so lucky to be part of this school. Our teachers are warm, caring, and wonderfully professional. It's clear that they take pride in what they do and spend a lot of energy being the best they can be. Plus, it is a child focused environment. KG was equally great. We love this school.

I have very mixed feelings about continuing my children's education here. On the one hand it is true the Lisa Zimmer and her staff and teachers are excellent and very hands-on. There are teachers here willing to put in extra time and effort to help kids like mine who are struggling to stay focused in the increasing onslaught of media distractions and working, tired parents. There is enough monetary wealth in this community to provide a good art and music program here, as well as athletics, and there are many very if not overly involved parents volunteering in the classrooms and providing all sorts of support. But beware, this is a very big school, and in 4th grade there are only 3 teachers, which means a giant bump up in class size to nearly 30 students. There is tons of homework starting in 1st grade, and my kids feel bored and overwhelmed. The bottom line here is if your child can self-regulate and do well academically this can be a good school for you. If you are a stay-at-home parent of a child who has challenges and you have the time to micromanage their school experience and be the squeaky wheel your kid will get what they need here. The rest of us are struggling.

"This school only works if your kid fits in ""the box"". Children that learn differently or ask a lot of questions are marginalized. There is also a big push to get 'out of the box' kids into Special Education so that they are not considered when the STAR test results are tabulated. This results in an artificially high test result for the school. Some teachers are highly committed and amazing and some are not. If you get a great one, you have a great year, if not then you definitely suffer. Added minus: recess is a school wide, barely supervised,free for all."
