Steve Jobs attended this elementary school. He wasn't fond of school, but had a teacher Imogen "Teddy" Hill, who bribed him to learn with candy bars and $5 bills.

Jobs said of her: "She was one of the saints of my life. She taught an advanced fourth grade class, and it took her about a month to get hip to my situation. She bribed me into learning."

Jobs learned enough to skip the fifth grade, and attended Crittenden Middle School briefly. He was picked on, and he gave his parents an ultimatum: he would either transfer to a different school, or quick attending school altogether. The young tactician was successful, and he transferred to Cupertino Junior High.
