Los Alamitos Elementary School Reviews
Parent Participation! Example: We just finished Kindergarten, where 1 teacher is supposed to teach 30 students, 4-6 years old. In order to give each student more 1on1 time, she asked (AND RECEIVED) 3 parent volunteers a day for 1.5 hours. That allowed her to work in groups of 6-8. Los Alamitos has 100% PTA participation which promotes a rich community of support for our school.
