I have great-grandchldren in this school. I am so proud of them and this school offers so much to them, it's hard to find a school with such a wonderful staff and so many caring parents and grand-parents and yes, great grandparents. It offers all that these young people enjoy and need. With all that it offers the sudents, It certainly deserves to be call a distinguished GreatSchool
It's a neighborhood school, small and excellent teachers. Our kids are not a # ,but they have names! Love it!
I love the school because not only that my kids learn academically at school but they also learn how to value and appreciate everything they have. They learn how to give instead of to receive. It is nice to be in a school where everybody cares for each others kid and not just their own.
It really is a friendly place to be!! That makes for great learning! Great staff and teachers and awesome PTA!
We are a new family to El Oro Way Elementary school and I must say that it has gone much better than I ever anticipated when entering the LAUSD. I cried and was scared to put my children into a public school when they had only attended a religious private school with class sizes being less than half of what the LAUSD per room ratio is. My children have taken to this school and made it their own even on their first day there. It has been an amazing journey already and I have seen such wonderful changes in their independence and responsibility for themselves. I was afraid that they would not get the attention they needed yet, the parent and staff support has been amazing and their needs are being met even better than at their last school. Thank you El Oro for such a wonderful welcome!
My daughter started this school mid year in 2008, in 5th grade. We found the principal and staff to be caring and informative. My daughter's teacher, Ms. Nava Moreno, is top-notch and truly dedicated to the education of the children. I was shocked to learn that she stays afterschool for several hours everyday working with the children. I was also pleasantly surprised at the amount of activities (field trips, guest speakers, events) the school had. The PTA and volunteers are also heavily involved in the school... which makes a world of difference. The campus is expansive and even includes a huge garden area. Culmination occurred this week and was a class act! The ceremony included greetings in various languages, the flag salute, singing, dancing, acting, slide shows, and even cake! I am sorry we did not get to experience more years at this wonderful school but grateful that the time we had. This school is a hidden gem!
My daughter is finishing up her second year at El Oro Way and her confidence has impoved greatly since her previous school. She loves her teacher and loves going to school. The curriculum keeps the children challenged. This is an all around wonder school!
My son started kindergarten last September 2008. Now its January 2009 so he has been in school for three and a half months, today he knows his alphabets, recognizes numbers 1 to 100 and reads words like :he, she, the, then, and, when, etc... He loves going to school, has no problem in doing his homework, so overall we are very satisfied and happy . Thank you El Oro Way Elementary!
We just moved into the neighborhood. We love El Oro Way! The office staff were very helpful! Our daughter is in 5th grade and this can be tough for a new student to come in at the end of her elementary career, but we are very pleased with her teacher, principal and curriculum. I wish they had instumental music, though. My daughter has played the violin for two years at her last school.
My daughter just started Kindergarten and the teachers, parents, and administrators have been so kind and welcoming. We love the school.
I am very happy with the teaching and administrative staff at El Oro Way. I transferred my gifted children from another school not too far away because they were not challenged. At El Oro Way, not only are they challenged, but they are encouraged to challenge themselves. The difference is unbelievable.
I am proud to be an El Oro Way parent. With the positive outcomes that my daughter is experiencing is amazing. She has a foundation that is being strongly built, so that she is able to succeed and proceed in life. Thank You El Oro Stephanie
teachers will take extra time with each kid, especially if the parent is involved. Beyond our expectations. we can afford private, but we stay at el oro because the education and the experience is fantastic.
I'm a new parent at El Oro Way. Coming from a private school, I was initially very scared to send my son to a public school. However, I soon realized that there was nothing to be afraid of! The school is great, there is a lot of support, the office staff is great and the education is superb. I am happy with my decision to take my children to my local school. I have no doubt they will excel here.
Congratulations, on the Wonder of Reading Library! What a wonderful accomplishment. And let's not forget about 'SAS'. I hope that you all know how proud I am to be a part of the El Oro Way family. Thank you for all of your support and friendship. I don't think that we're hidden anymore! Keep up the 'awesome' work. God Bless and Love, Erika Dodge
This school has great teachers and also parents who volunteer a lot of time to help the school excel. They have a natural habitat on campus and the campus is beautiful. They also have a lot of special programs and computers for every child.
This school is going to be named as a distinguished school award winner. This is because the principal, staff, and parents are extremely active in providing an excellent educational forum. The PTA is organized and very successful. The enviroment is stimulating and varied for the students.
I have two children at El Oro Way. Their personalities and abilities differ greatly. However, both have excelled due to the very high quality of teaching at this school. The younger child has never been judged by her sibling's accomplishments but has been allowed to grow as an individual.
The faculty and parents really support the teachers at el oro, everyone really works together. I'm lucky its my home school!
