The Kester PTA wishes everyone a fun-filled and relaxing summer. We'll see you in August for the first day of school on August 14th. If you are an incoming kindergarten family, please join us at the Kinder Meet and Greet on August 10th, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Here's a quick look at what's in store:
Kester Avenue Elementary, in the heart of Sherman Oaks, is a diverse learning community of over 1,000 students, from kindergarten through grade five. Our school is comprised of a home school as well as a gifted/high ability magnet school (grades 1-5). We emphasize the importance of learning in core academic subjects, as well offer an enriched curriculum of art, music, 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 are able to experience a wide variety of enrichment programs/positions such as P.E. with the YMCA, computer lab instruction provided by ComputerWiseKids, a full-time science lab TA, art classes, music classes, full-time nurse's aide and field trip buses, funded by the Kester Avenue PTA and the generous contributions of our school community.
