Empire Gardens Elementary School Reviews
This Elementary has changed my life. I know as odd as it sounds, but the teachers actually care. The principal actually knew my name, and the afterschool program was fantastic when I went there from 2000-2005. The after school program taught me values, responsiblity, and day to day manners. I am very thankful for this elementary school because I would not be the reliable and responsible student I am today. So I thank you (=
THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM IS THE BEST IN SAN JOSE!!! ERNESTO IS ALWAY ON TOP OR THINGS AND HIS STAFF IS VERY HARDWORKING AND SUPPORTIVE OF MY SON. ERNESTO CAN BE IMTIMIDATING BUT ONCE YOU GET TO KNOW HIM HE IS A AWESOME GUY WHO LOVES HIS JOB. I HOPE HE CONTINUES HIS DEDICATION AND DEVOTION TO OUT KIDS! GO EMPIRE
