We are looking to move to Alameda from SF. Can anyone talk about the schools? I have heard great things about Maya Lin and Paden. Im very curious about Love Elementary as that is a neighborhood we keep being drawn towards and I hear mixed things about this school. And I know people love Edison and Otis yet I don't know anyone who attends. Im looking for a school where community, arts, and play are all valued. I fear kids are pushed into academics too hard at such a young age and Im curious if any of these schools support some of my same values.
And, is it hard to transfer out of your neighborhood into another elementary school?
Any input is welcome. Thanks.
