By , a Parent on

My daughter has attend New Highland for the past 3 years 1-3rd and the teachers are amazing. The principal is awesome and all the office staff, after schhol staff, cafeteria staff have shown so much LOVE to me where each and every day I feel she is Great Hands when I'm not around.
  I'm sorry I must mention this Iwas an only child lived right by the school a block away and never new it was there. Being an only child I was able to attend a Catholic School. My two older children always attending schools in Castro Valley. I didn't know that the same if not better Education was right next door. My daughter is so intelligient bright just from attendin an Oakland Public School. I never dreamed I would have any of my children attend Oakland Schhols.
  When my youngest was accepted in to Castro Valley High Ms. Davis 1st grade teacher had made me fall in love  with that school oh wow then 2nd grade Mr. Carter ok I can't take her out then Ms. Ward so warm Ms Dordell and Ms. Chan oh the librian I'm sorry even the crossing guards. Its a family away from family.  I Pray when she enters 5th grade they open another New Highland middle school LoL and then High School wishful thinking. However nothing is imposible I'm living proof...
