Our school is comprised of a home school and a gifted/high ability magnet school (grades 1-5). We emphasize the importance of learning in core academic subjects, and offer an enriched curriculum of art, music, science, and physical education. Kester is proud to be designated a California Distinguished School for its collaboration and parent involvement.
