Ernesto Galarza Elementary has served the community of San José, California for over xxx years. The school is named for activist and professor, Ernesto Galarza. Our team of 33 employees serve nearly 350 students in grades TK-5.

At Ernesto Galarza Elementary, parents and staff work together to ensure that each student receives a rigorous and comprehensive education in a safe, caring environment.  All students have the opportunity to think critically, work both independently and collaboratively, take risks, and be creative.  Students are at the core of all decisions and our team is committed to helping students become lifelong learners and preparing them to be the thinkers, leaders, and creators of tomorrow.

Families are encouraged to learn about parent participation opportunities through school committees and school connected organizations. If you want to visit Ernesto Galarza Elementary, please review our visitor guidelines.
