Anza Elementary School Reviews
Great Family Oriented School
I am not sure what parent wrote the last review, but it is the opposite of what she is stating. The school is in a family oriented neighborhood where the parents take ownership and pride in the school.
There are great teachers here as well who have a genuine love of teaching. Overall, it is a great school in Torrance for parents who partner with the teachers!
This school is ok if your child doesn't have a learning disability. Without a learning disability there is no help. If your child has issues they will pass them a long. They are known for this and many parents have tried to fight for a better school. Barbara Marks will do nothing for these kids. They just lost some of their best teachers. The school is terrible and I fear for it next year. Again, they will not help your child if they fall behind or have learning disabilities. They have to be very sever for them to help. This school will make sure that your child falls threw the cracks, no matter how hard you fight for your child. You better be rich if you want help for your child.
