A Winner Who Matched Public Schools With Their Pictures in Los Altos & LAH

Audrey Crowley guessed which of these pictures match with the list of our public elementary and middle schools. Did you know these?

You figure a PTA president would know. 

Audrey Crowley, after getting 9 of 11 right in her first try, has properly identified all the schools shown in the pictures. She wins bragging rights for recognizing not only the schools in Los Altos School District, but also the sole school in the Cupertino Union School District that is Los Altos city boundaries—Montclaire. And, she properly identified Bullis Charter School, also located inside Los Altos city boundaries.

A big thanks to Jordan Zimmerman and David Beyer for shooting the photographs and coming up with the contest idea!

Here are the correct answers:

[A] Blach

[B] Santa Rita

[C] Bullis Charter

[D] Almond

[E] Egan

[F] Oak

[G] Springer

[H] Covington

[I] Gardner Bullis

[J] Loyola

[K] Montclaire


Do you recognize the scenes above? They're our public elementary and middle schools attended by Los Altos or Los Altos Hills students.

Local residents Jordan Zimmerman and David Beyer embarked on a photo excursion throughout our public schools. School is almost out for the summer, so now you can test how familiar you've become with them this year!

All are either in city boundaries or within a district identified with Los Altos or Los Altos Hills. Be the first to match all the school pictures with the corresponding letters and win bragging rights, not to mention Patch users' admiration and amazement!

  1. Almond
  2. Blach
  3. Bullis Charter
  4. Covington
  5. Egan
  6. Gardner Bullis

@Audrey Crowley: You are very close, but not quite. You've got nine out of 11 schools guessed correctly.

Must be D and F that are switched.

Let's not forget, thought slightly off-topic, that there are Palo Alto public schools attended by LAH children (and, further off-topic, kids who live in Palo Alto city but Los Altos district who go to one or more of your list of 11). Pinewood School of course is a private school on the grounds of the former PAUSD k-6 Fremont Hills.

Audrey Crowley is correct! D is Almond School and F is Oak School
