Welcome back to Birney! Our PTA and FOABE presidents are happy to welcome you back and to join the PTA for another great year!

Here's our one-page calendar to keep abreast of all the great events at Birney this year.

Academic achievement for all: 

every child’s time here is memorable, enjoyed, and successful

Mr. Bee Travels the World


Alice Birney Elementary is an International Baccalaureate magnet enrolling K-5 students, a 2010 California Distinguished School. We continue to rise to the challenge of meeting the needs of a very diverse student population. We acknowledge that academic success is paramount for all of us, yet the Birney goal is to also make sure that every child’s time here is memorable, enjoyed, and successful. Our motto is, “Think globally, learn locally,” which means we take into account the global perspective in addition to our own, and we recognize and respect the last thought in the IBO’s mission statement: Other people, with their differences, may also be right.
