Los Altos Grace Brethren School

  • Los Altos Brethren School was founded in 1972. Our preschool was established first, followed by our kindergarten and then our elementary school.
  • We provide a solid, well-rounded education to children. Our school offers a developmentally based preschool program for three- and four-year-olds.
  • Our elementary school offers a strong academic curriculum based on a developmentally appropriate philosophy.
