Dianne Feinstein School is a dynamic learning environment with an emphasis on science and the arts. In shaping our school, all stakeholders are an integral part of our children's success. We seek open communication with the community to continually improve our school. The education we provide empowers children to fully interact in our world with integrity and confidence. Our students treat all people and our environment with compassion and respect. Our community fosters trusting relationships among students, staff, family, and community members.

We provide cooperative learning experiences and offer enrichment activities that encourage student independence, and positive interaction. We have many school programs that work toward supporting our students. These include the Umoja cultural diversity celebration, the cross-age Buddies program, Special Education support staff, English Language Learner tutoring, GATE (Gifted And Talented Education) program, and a partnership with Lincoln High School student volunteers who provide one-on-one-assistance in classrooms. We have a number of evening and weekend community building and education programs such as Science Night, Art Night, Family Movie Night, family education workshops, garden work days, and a community carnival. We hold schoolwide community meetings three times a week to provide opportunities for children to receive praise and recognition and build respect for themselves and each other.
