Great Opportunity for students - Los Alisos has a new Dual Immersion Program (English/Spanish). Students have an opportunity to learn two languages while in middle school and when they start HS they can take AP Spanish.
Los Alisos students have many opportunities to engage in 21st Century Skills (the use of technology, Project Based Learning, and STEM). I recommend parents to check out all programs available. Great school, Great teachers.
This school has accomplished great things among extreme circumstances. The staff and students are the best example of a learning community.
Los Alisos has two new programs for the 2013-14 school year. If accepted in the Magnet, students will have a choice to continue in the Engineering Pathway 6th-8th grade or NEW this year, a Biomedical Pathway class in 7th and 8th grade and a Video Production in 8th grade, WOW!!! In sixth grade a brand new Dual Language (English/Spanish) Class, students must meet a criteria to be enrolled. Wya to go Los Alisos.....
I had taught here for many years and now am teaching in elementary school. The students I send to Los Alisos will get the education to carry them onto college and beyond. The teachers are all professionals and the students are ready to learn from them.
Los Alisos is a fantastic school for student to get prepared for college. This year they introduced the magnet program where students are focusing on robotics, technology, and science. Our school is also very fortunate to start our very first science lab! Los Alisos also has Honors Classes and Zero Period P.E. for those in Magnet or Avid( Avid is a class where students are learning more and more about college.) Many of the teacher's in this school are quite nice, our classrooms aren't filthy and we have A.C. in the main buildings. Snack and lunch is held in the quad, but on rainy days it is held in the cafeteria. There is also the GATE program where students have the privilege to learn more about the basic topics instead of just "scratching it on the surface". Los Alisos also enters the Orange County Pentathalon, we have our own cheer leading squad, we have our own basketball team, there is also the band olymics and much more! :) This year we will probably reach the 800 API score, so we are trying our best to succeed in the test. I am very pleased to be a 7th grade student here at Los Alisos! ~GO LOBOS!~
Los Alisos is the best middle school in Norwalk, students come here to learn and teachers care for all students.
I believe that the students are very proud of their school and it shows when they wear their school shirts and how much pride comes from them. Proud to have a student attend Los Alisos and be an involved parent. The parent participation has grown tremendously this year. Great feeling to have so many students involved with activities for the school. Good job students,teachers and staff...Keep up the pride!!!Go Lobos!!!
This is my daughter's fist year at middle school.. and so far the school spirit at Los Alisos Middle School is Great! Staff at Los Alisos is very friendly and informative!!.. Proud to be a parent of Los Alisos Middle School in Norwalk!!!! Go Lobos!!
It is a wonderful school and has the best teachers. The after school activities have grown this year and I am glad my child attends it. My only complaint is the principal seems to expect the students have have caused problems in the past to cause every problem and always be guilty.
I think the school and the teacher are doing a great job. My only complaint, that I have voiced many times is that they need to update the online calendar. I've been told they don't have time. It's not that time consuming to do this. It would be a tremendous help regarding outings, report cards, conferences, dances etc. Not much opportunity for parent involvement. Award ceremonies, PTA meetings ect. are during the day. How are working parents supposed to attend?
Los Alisos Middle School in Norwalk has the best teachers, they support the parents as well as the kids. They stay on top of the students and with this helps the parents to see where there child needs additional help. They don't believe in letting your child fall through the cracks like that old saying. I honor the teachers at Los Alisos
Los Alisos has improved the quality of its education over the last 2 years. Besides significantly increasing parent involvement reflected in the growing PTSA, student interest in band has grown as well.
I think that this school is average a few things can be improved on such as parent involvement and more field trips but over all its a very good school and im glad my child attends. The principal is a good principal and I agree that the childen should be disciplined and shouldn't run around like they own the school. Good job Ms.Holstrom.
