Neil Armstrong Elementary is a neighborhood school in San Ramon, one of thirty-three high preforming schools in the San Ramon Unified School District. Our staff, community and parents hold high expectations for all students. The school and district pursue excellence for every child by promoting “The Six Shifts” in our curriculum. This includes the importance of speaking and listening, reading informational text, and increasing text complexity while incorporating strategies of writing to learn and writing arguments integrating technology throughout. Our Response to Intervention program is managed with “Just Right Groups” to meet the individual needs of all students. Grade level teams meet to determine changes needed.

PTA provides countless events to build community such as Multicultural Night, Father Daughter Dance, Mother Son Game Night, Grandparents Day, Reading Week, monthly art docent lessons, and so much more. Our Eagle Boosters Board and generous parent donations enable us to provide para-professionals in the classroom, a computer lab, library media coordinator, and technology in the classroom. They also provide I pads for every 5th grade student, I pad and computer carts for every grade level. Students use these tools within the curriculum producing I Movies, Google Docs and slide presentations, student created websites and Padlet.

Students are expected to demonstrate good character at all times and every student is involved our monthly “Second Step: program, classroom meetings with the principal and are recognized through Pride Assemblies. Neil Armstrong School strives to be a place where children love to learn and become successful leaders of tomorrow.
