Allendale Elementary, located in the Allendale Park neighborhood of East Oakland, is a vibrant community devoted to educating the whole child! We have established a culture of continuous school improvement thanks to our team of teachers, parents, and administrators who are committed to creating the best possible learning environment for students. Teachers meet weekly for a sixty minute period during the workday in their professional learning community to analyze student performance data, set goals, and share instructional strategies. These teacher teams follow a developed agenda and use protocols and defined roles to manage the meetings. These meetings are Allendale’s cornerstone for building a professional learning community and improving student achievement. Allendale focuses on technology, utilizing three mobile Google Chrome carts with 32 workstations, to increase student proficiency in writing, research and inquiry. Our Reading Partners program pairs struggling readers with adult volunteers. Students in this program read with their adult mentor 1-2 hours per week (all year long) to enhance their reading and self-esteem.
