Los Alamitos Elementary School serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade. It is located in a suburban, non-residential area of Los Alamitos, on the border of Orange and Los Angeles counties.
Surrounded by a park, middle school and light industry, the school has a unique atmosphere which reflects a strong sense of community and pride. LAE is the oldest elementary school – over 50 years – in the district.
Some of our families have lived in the community for generations, while others live in nearby communities, attending on inter-district transfer permits. All have been attracted to the school because of the outstanding reputation it has for high academic standards, teachers who care deeply about their students, and a safe and nurturing environment.
Los Alamitos Elementary School also provides a recognized art program; music program; media center program; and Kids’ Korner, an on-site extended day care program providing services to over 200 students before and after school. After school activities also include Spanish, instrumental music lessons, chess, martial arts, and ceramic art.
