The Livermore Valley Joint School District is thankful for the partnership with the Livermore Shakespeare Festival and for the So Wise So Young program that introduces William Shakespeare to each of our second-grade students. The talented and enthusiastic actor-educators who work with our students each week during this program truly bring Shakespeare to life.

This in-school literacy program for K-12 students which enhances current English and Language Arts curriculum is made possible, in large part, through the financial support of the Livermore Valley Education Foundation and the Real Estate Alliance of Livermore Both groups are generous partners of our district and are committed to supporting our students. As students are introduced to Shakespeare and his history, they concurrently are increasing language skills, comprehending key details in a text, improving the expression of ideas through drama, writing and reading, developing imagination, and relating key themes in Shakespeare’s work to their own lives.
