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.
Your support and contributions enable us to provide computer lab instruction, P.E., field trip buses, a full-time nurse's aide and much more. The suggested donation for the 2020-2021 school year is $480 per family. Please donate as much as you can.
