Kester Avenue Elementary, in the heart of Sherman Oaks, is a diverse learning community of over 1,100 students, teaching kindergarten through grade five. 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.
At Kester Avenue Elementary / Magnet, students experience a unique variety of enrichment programs and staff positions, including P.E. with the YMCA, computer lab instruction provided by ComputerWiseKids, a full-time science lab TA, Mystery Science, art classes, music classes, a full-time nurse's aide, field trip buses, and much more. Kester's highly-enriched education is made possible by the Kester PTA and generous contributions from our school community.
