Booksin Elementary is a high achieving elementary school located in the heart of the Willow Glen suburb in San Jose, California. Our team of 49 employees serve over 700 students in grades TK-5.

The school was named after an early Willow Glen pioneer. Louis Booksin, and his son, Henry Booksin owned cherry orchards in Willow Glen in the 1900s. To this day, the Booksin sense of community and commitment to succeed are characteristics of our school. Booksin provides an environment where children are intellectually challenged in ways appropriate to their individual strengths, needs, and experiences. We strive to develop thriving individuals, responsible citizens, and lifelong learners who will actively participate in their local and global communities.

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