Elementary School

San Jose Private Elementary School

At Almaden Country Day School, we focus on each child as an individual who is accepted and valued. We offer continuity and consistency across a curriculum designed to develop and celebrate the whole child; from our early childhood Pre-Kindergarten classes through our Fifth Grade.

Diverse Instructional Programs & Enrichment Classes

In addition to English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Social Studies, the instructional program for all elementary (K-5) students includes Art, Science, Physical Education, Music and Theater Arts. All elementary students engage in project-based learning using a variety of technologies in our popular Makerspace. Enrichment classes are taught by specialist teachers.
