Hammer Montessori At Galarza Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I have two children at this school and they love it here. The school environment is very welcoming and the teachers and staff always make time for parents. The PTA has been replaced with a non-profit organization. The quality of programs the board brings to the school is wonderful. The kids have been in the past few years published authors, mad scientists and opera singer through the starting arts program. There are many opportunities to join in the school community. The librarian at this school is wonderful. She manages two schools and makes the library a joyful and comfortable space for all students.

Wonderful experience for both of my kids who have now graduated as of 2017. All of our teachers were great and responsive, with one bad experience in Kinder but that teacher is now gone (yay!). Would not hesitate to send them here again. Montessori is such a great way to teach children and this school has a nice, small family atmosphere. Just wish they didn't share the campus with Galarza :/

We have been pretty happy with this school up until this year. There is no longer a PTA which means there is really limited ways for parents to get involved and meet other parents or be involved. There is a foundation but it is not a very welcoming group and does not do the typical PTA events that would draw the students and parents to the school for events. Miss having the events that the other school onsite gets to have. Also my child is now in 4th grade and I am worried about the choices for 5th grade. There is one really great teacher that we all want but she can only have 30 students and currently teaches 4th/5th which means even fewer 5th graders. The other 5th grade teacher is of questionable reputation and character and one I do not want teaching my child. Seems like I am not the only one in this situation. It's a shame that the school does great until the important 5th grade. For younger grades though it is great and I would recommend it. Would also recommend getting a PTA back on campus.

I have 3 children that attend Hammer Montessori, my oldest since 2009. We have had both kinder teachers for my children, and the teachers clearly have different styles. I found for my 3 children, both styles are effective and offer a unique personality fit for my non-cookie cutter kids. I think parents don't always understand the Montessori classroom and how the kinder classroom is structured. Thus the reason for the tours and the opportunity to meet the kinder teachers. If you are considering schools for your kinder or 1st grader, please come check out our school. You won't find an education like this in any other public school in SJUSD.

My daughter is just entering the fourth grade at Hammer and we have had nothing but a great experience here. The teachers are extremely easy to talk with and accessible. With any school, there will be a range of types of teachers and personalities. I have found that the principal and teachers work together to place the kids with the most appropriate teachers that best suit the child's personality while keeping the the classroom dynamics in mind. Our community of teachers and parents are amazing. I'd really like to see the school find a site that can allow it to expand it to eight grade.
