"I’ve lived here for 12 years, and in that time I’ve seen the neighborhood grow from a sleepy bedroom community to a thriving neighborhood with lots of young families and good restaurants, a market, good access to public transportation, and good access to open space"

"Very walkable and safe, though not without the occasional car break in. Lots of restaurants nearby, as well as a bodega. Excellent access to parks, and commute options."

"This neighborhood is within walking distance of many bus line, some to San Francisco, many to downtown Oakland. Cars are definitely not needed, but sometimes useful. Short term car rentals are available through, usually within a block."

"It's close to several parks, not far from the lake, and has easy access to freeways. There are several schools very easily accessible, and it's a walkable neighborhood."

"We're an older, friendly community that has remained relatively unchanged for years. We have treasured unique neighborhood shops and restaurants. The community center provides an array of music, dance, and family events and classes. I enjoy hearing the music at outdoor events."

"Our main street, Park Blvd., has become a thoroughfare between freeways and carpool stops. This has created heavy traffic in and out of the area."

"Close to parks, the Oakland and Berkeley hills, and the beautiful Sausal Creek, yet also very walkable to wonderful restaurants, Transbay buses, and grocery stores. Glenview is a hidden gem."

"We have lived here 15 years and can only say great things about Piedmont. It is lovely, serene and safe with excellent proximity to The City. We are known for our schools and wonderful architecture. We also get to enjoy all the services and restaurants in Oakland. Our neighbors are very friendly and it is also very pet friendly and extremely walkable."

As a parent who has first-hand, hands-on experience with the principal, I can say that I have the utmost respect for her. She is forthcoming about the workings of the district and really works hard at complex budget and diversity issues. She has also been inspiring as she has led us through a cross-town move and difficult delays in the construction of our new school building. The best part is that she inspires the teachers and they are happy to work for her, as far as I can see.I agree with the teacher review that said there are unique challenges at Glenview because of its diversity, especially its economic diversity, but my kids have really come to have a different worldview than I can just teach at home. As the second-most diverse elementary school in Oakland, it really represents Oakland, and that's why we live here. Our cousins who live behind a gate in Pleasanton and go to a public school will never acquire the empathy tools and real-world coping skills that my children are getting in elementary school. I thought they went to a diverse preschool, but I now see just how limited that view was. A lot of schools have some token diversity, but Glenview is the real deal.All the teachers we've had have been great -- and caring. We had an incident in kindergarten that some might label as bullying, but it was dealt with in a satisfactory way to us with restorative justice, and we haven't heard of any incidents with that child since. Anything negative I can think of stem from the school district. OUSD needs to do better! Luckily we have principal who can stretch a dollar and a very involved PTA and parent community that cares about more than academics and supports enrichment like technology, music, PE, art, and more.
