Welcome to Independent Elementary School!

Located in beautiful Castro Valley, Independent Elementary School is the wonderful home of about 600 student “Eagles”. At Independent Elementary School we are proud of our students and the high academic achievements they have attained. Our highly involved families and outstanding staff share common goals and high expectations for academic achievement and excellent behavior.

This strong collaboration between the families and the school staff has provided many enriching opportunities to ensure the development of well-rounded children. Students benefit from specialist teachers in the areas of music, science, and physical education. Students participate in band, strings ensembles, chorus, and an annual Talent Show.

Students are honored for achievements and character development through the "Eagle Award" program. Students, staff and parents work together to create a remarkable learning community.

We thank you for your support of our school and our mission.

SOAR!

Sincerely,

Jim Kentris
Principal, Independent Elementary School
