I agree with other reviewers that Los Alamitos has a dedicated hardworking staff and parental involvement through the PTA is high. Families make the school worthwhile. Unfortunately, lack of leadership from the principal has had a negative impact on this school. Students who are bullied are afraid of retaliation. Principal is more concerned about test scores than the well-being of the students.
High parental support and involvement. School staff is great. Fabulous teachers.
The school is like an extended family. The parents and teachers go above and beyond to ensure that our children get the best possible education in spite of continuous budget cuts. It seems that all parents and teachers are unselfish with their time and really put a lot of effort into working together to provide an amazing learing environment for our children. I am pround to be a part of the Los Alamitos family.
Amazing school. Wonderful teachers, and alot of parent participation. I feel lucky to have had both my children attend Los Alamitos.
Los Alamitos school has been such a blessing for our family. The parents and teachers are wonderful and make sure that our kids get a first class education
Our four children attended in the 70's and 80's and now our grandaughter in 2010 and another to follow next year! Over all of these years, Los Alamitos has never failed the precious children entrusted into their care. The parental support has remained consistent and amazing throughout the history of this wonderful school. Beginning with it's first Principal (Bruce Bondelie), the bar was set high for the teachers and staff and they have never dissappointed. The environment is one of nurture, mutual respect, challenge and love. Our family is proud to be among it's strong history.
Blue Ribbon School, clean and very academic. Love the upgrades to field and track.
Los Alamitos is everything a school should be: a fantastic resource for the children, a caring and trusted place for the parents, and a center point for the community. The teachers, administrators, and parent volunteers make Los Alamitos a fantastic place for the kids. Long live great public schools!
Los Alamitos puts the kids first, that is what I love about our school.
Los Alamitos is a great place to go to school because the kids are focused on learning and the parents are committed to supporting an environment that is diverse and supportive. I also love the upgrades to the ball field and track.
great teachers, committed staff, concerned and active parents=succesful students.
Teachers work hard to provide an excellent education. High parent participation and concern. Wonderful environment to nurture students and make good citizens.
I LOVE working at this school! The staff is great to work with, the parents are more involved than any other school I have seen. Everyone rallies together to provide the best learning environment possible for the students!
Parents and staff work well together to ensure that every child can be successful.
I volunteer heavily at this school. The interaction between staff and parents is execptional. So many great programs for our kids.
Great teachers and parents really step up when needed, and are very active in their kids lives.
Having nephews in this school, we have seen that the teachers are extremely dedicated and work to keep interest of students high and to help the students promote their community and school spirit.
It is a wonderful community that focuses on academics, art, music, reading, love of learning, and in being a good citizen. There is so much participation in the school it is impressive and inspiring. I can't recommend it highly enough.
My Grandson attended Los Alamitos and my Granddaughter is at Los Alamitos school. I am very inpressed with the teachers and activities for the students. Los Alamitos is a wonderful school.
When our family was in the market for a new home, we chose our neighborhood primarily because of Los Alamitos. We had heard and then did the research to verify some of the great things we had been told. It wasn't just the test scores that we were interested in. The teachers and family involvement is what really impressed us. There are so many parents that volunteer to help wherever it is needed. The key is that the teachers and families care so much about the success of this school and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it a successful learning environment. The additional programs and activities that are offered are a definite bonus. We currently have two children at the school so I guess the best way to guage that Los Alamitos is a 'Great School' is the growth, development, success and happiness that I have seen in my children along the way.
