Discover This School

Claire Lilienthal school is committed to working together as a community. Students, families, and staff work in partnership toward the goal of excellence, for all and continue to improve the instructional program. Lilienthal offers a comprehensive curriculum based on the California Content and Performance Standards. We believe our continued success is largely due to high expectations for all of our students.

We are firmly committed to Claire Lilienthal's tradition of providing equal access to a high quality education for students from every neighborhood and every cultural background. In addition to our general education classes, we also offer the only Korean Immersion program in the city as well as a successful Special Education Inclusion Program. Every child can learn and build a strong foundation for a bright future. We are a parent partnership school with a shared and focused vision that every child will succeed. Opportunities for parent involvement are every day, and throughout the year. Parents choose to focus on a particular area of interest, such as assisting in the classroom during learning center time, weekly library volunteers, noontime monitoring, academic tutoring, garden projects, and more.
