Bracher Elementary is a great school to have your children attend. The teachers and staff are very supportive and the atmosphere at the school is more like family than a school. The test scores speak for themselves as to the quality of teachers that are working very hard to teach our children. I know of many families that transfer their children from other schools in Santa Clara to Bracher. I am just lucky that this is the home school for my children and I don't have to jump through the hoops to get my children one of the best educations you can get in Santa Clara!
My husband and I havve tranferred our son to Bracher this fall from a nearby elementary school. I am amazed at what a genuine leader, the pincipal, can make a diffenrence in school's quality, and culture. Teachers are caring and professional. Children are polite and happy. Newly released API score is only one of many signs that you would see as a proof that something is being done right here at Bracher! Thank you, Dr. K & all the teachers and staff at Bracher!
