Roy Cloud is a Kindergarten through 8th grade neighborhood school that strives to provide a well-balanced, challenging environment where all our students can thrive and enjoy a diverse and enriching education. We inspire excellence within a close-knit partnership of students, staff, parents and community. Students are empowered with the foundation of knowledge and skill they need to reach their fullest potential, embrace a lifelong love of learning, and become responsible and engaged members of a global community.

We are proud of our academic achievements and awards, and our many events that we have throughout the year. Last year our faculty and students can boast many achievements. Our students were the 1st place recipients of the Bay Area Mathematics Olympiad, several students won awards from the RCEF Essay contest, the Port of Redwood City Art Contest, and our faculty won the San Mateo Reading Association’s Literacy Award, and the San Mateo School Board Association’s Kent Award.
