           Bollinger Canyon Elementary School 
2300 Talavera Dr, San Ramon, CA 94583


Bollinger Canyon Elementary School, built in 1980, nestled in the rolling hills above Interstate 680, proudly serves the San Ramon neighborhood. With a small number of apartments and condominiums, as well as the new building, Norris Canyon Estates, the surrounding community consists mainly of single-family homes. The 570 Pre K and K-5th graders' student enrollment represents the rapid development of the surrounding area of Bollinger.


The innovative program of supporting autistic kids between the ages of 3 and 11 builds a culture that is caring and enthusiastic about helping others. These very special children provide all of our children with the ability to engage in all ways thoughtfully, positively and supportively with others. Their awards are proudly embraced by our children for "Being Caught in the act of Being Significant" and displayed in our multi-purpose room.


Their goal is to provide a healthy learning atmosphere that values and encourages academic achievement and individual differences. Their aim is to foster cooperation between employees, parents and students in order to achieve personal and academic success nurtured by a sense of partnership, appreciation and trust. Teachers, students, parents, and employees recognize the need to feel supported, respected, and appreciated by all members of our school community. There is a fervent desire to have an atmosphere for learning that is conducive to developing every child's unique intellectual, social, physical and emotional potential. They will help our students grow a love of learning and the skills required to become caring and productive citizens through home and school efforts.


Their employees are actively working to provide students with a 21st century education that focuses on literacy, growth of character and deep learning involvement. They have a Character Characteristic of the Month that is sponsored by the monthly Flag Salute and a school-wide Book of the Month. In order to push our knowledge and practice, we believe in separating training, small group intervention and studying data.

Via our PTA, Bulldog Fund and Site Committee, they are actively sponsored by our parent party. Thanks to the generous fund-raising and sponsorship efforts made by their families, we are able to fund extras such as K-5 music, advanced art lessons, a computer lab assistant, librarian and classroom help by paraeducators. They host seven groups of students with significant autism and other medical/developmental needs. They feel fortunate to teach and learn from these special students who provide unique communication and discovery opportunities.
