We love Almaden Country Day School. Our oldest daughter graduated from ACDS last year and was completely prepared for high school. At ACDS, her love of learning was nurtured, she was offered many wonderful enrichment classes and she was taught how to speak confidently. Our youngest daughter is in 5th grade and is inspired by amazing teachers, offered opportunities to try new things in a safe environment and supported by a wonderful community. Great school!

This has been a special place for my children to be educated. They are confident and secure in their surroundings because of the caring environment here. They are encouraged to step outside of the box, be challenged and creatives. As a result, they have become independent thinkers who have learned initiative here which is invaluable!
The elementary campus is a lot nicer. The middle school is just a bunch of old portables. I genuinely loved the library and the art room. The science rooms are also pretty great. To their credit, the administration are working on remaking parts of the campus and they do their best to make sure there's shade and everything.

The bathrooms aren't fancy, but they're better than your average store bathroom. They can sometimes smell.

Technology is slowly entering the elementary classes, but there are smartboards in middle school and middle schoolers rent a laptop during the day.

There are no guidance counselors or similar services. There aren't any college-related services.

Parents were VERY involved, but it was very social and political there too. It was hard for some of my friends' parents to join the community because a lot of the kids go to the school from age three through fourteen. Also, all school-related parent events were incredibly expensive.

There is no busing service. Drop off and pick up times are pretty strict. Older kids can take a bike, but nobody is allowed to take public transportation.
