"The people in my neighborhood are cold, judgmental and rude. In 6 years I have had contact with 2 families. (Both whom we love dearly). This is the snobbiest area I have ever lived in. BUT I was blessed enough to meet several people at the library in a social group. Coincidentally all moved here from other areas all over the country. At least we all agree that Almaden sucks. Lol. "

"our neighborhood is very green all year round and it is surrounded by parks. it has its charming natural beauty, easy access to Almaden lake park and Guadalupe Oak park, but still very close to the shops, groceries and other fun things to do. More importantly, neighbors are very friendly and kind. "

We have had a great experience at this school, academically and socially. I have one child who has moved on to middle school from Guadalupe and one child who still attends Guadalupe. We have experienced many outstanding teachers who take the time to tailor learning experiences to the individual. The new principal, Mr. Jones, appears to be an effective leader, making positive changes to the school. One of my children received some special education services and the team was great overall. Ms. Carroll is an excellent resource specialist. The grade-level teachers we have had work really well with Ms. Carroll and implement classroom accommodations to help students succeed. The STEAM program and new lab is a fun and valuable asset to the school. The PTA/GHSC is very active, providing great events like an ice cream social, art vista night, Olympics day, and a spring carnival. The downside to this is that it is run by a few very strong, opinionated personalities who also volunteer many hours at the school. I believe, as do some other parents, that the PTA has some overbearing and judgmental parents who drown out other voices and complicate being involved in volunteering or even school dropoff/pickup. To address some concerns posted by a past reviewer who stated that Guadalupe falls short of an east coast school, I grew up going to a northeastern public school and went to a top 25 university. Many parents at Guadalupe are also highly educated and have top university degrees. One thing I learned from our time in a couple different school districts was to research and think critically about our school choices. I know that many extra-curricular activities I had growing up were funded by tax payers in my northeastern public school. Unfortunately, that is not the reality in most of California, as I knew before we started at Guadalupe. However, this school tries its best to make up for that with the GHSC-funded physical education, art, and other programs. For us the positives well outweigh the negatives. Guadalupe provides a great education.
