The Saklan School
- Private School
- Moraga, CA
- PK, K-8
Parent: Our family ADORES the Saklan School!
It is a hidden gem just minutes from our home in Lafayette. Every day our 5th grade son can't wait to go to school. Because of the small class size, amazing faculty and project-based curriculum, he has a true love for learning.
The school manages to balance strong academics with a culture of empathy and community service. A typical Saklan student is confident, curious and incredibly compassionate.
We have wonderful public schools in Lafayette, but chose Saklan to provide a more nurturing, academically stimulating and creative environment for our son.

Walnutwood High (Independent Study)
- Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, CA
Niche User: Choosing to transfer to Walnutwood was one of the best decisions I've made. I've been able to be involved in so many extracurricular activities (sometimes 20+ hours a week between varsity golf, clubs, Girl Scouts, and two internships) while still taking AP and advanced courses. Even with so many activities and challenging classes, I very rarely have to stay up late to finish work - and when I do, it's because I procrastinated and saved an entire week's worth of assignments to do in two days. I've also never had to cut spending time with my friends. If I were to do my entire high school experience over again, I would do the exact same thing. I spent two years at my traditional high school, where I got through my lab science and visual performance requirements. I also got involved in varsity golf and founded a club and was in theatre performances and the like. I was able to stay involved in those things pretty easily when I transferred to WHS since I already knew the teachers in charge.
