Los Cerritos Elementary School Reviews
This school has been a dream come true! My son switched from Sunshine Gardens to Los Cerritos for 3rd grade SDC. He is now a soon to graduate 5th grader. His teacher and her aides have been GREAT! I cannot begin to say how much he has flourished. His self confidence is way up, he is now comfortable communicating with kids his own age, and he has become comfortable all around. He started off a very shy, non-social boy. Now, he is a chatter box! I love to see him talk to his friends. I highly recommend the special day class they have for kids 3-5 grades. The whole staff has been very helpful and supportive.
