  • I am currently in 5th grade 2010- 2011 and came to El Oro Way in 4th grade. I was shy at first, but than the teachers were so very nice. I love my 2 teachers I met so far. I am in SAS and that is for people who need to get challenged. I hope other students get to go to this wonderful and welcoming school!

  • I am currently going to El Oro way right now! I came here in 4th grade in 2009- 2010 and now I am in 5th grade. I love the teachers and I like the teacher I have now. The 5th grade teachers are Ms. NavaMoreno, Ms. Maldanao, and Mr. Fractor, I am currently in SAS which is in Ms. NavaMoreno's class. She is an excellent teacher and would love to teach more kids (maybe). Right now there is 34 students in the class! I hope other children will go to El Oro Way and Succeed.

  • My daughter started this school mid year in 2008, in 5th grade. We found the principal and staff to be caring and informative. My daughter's teacher, Ms. Nava Moreno, is top-notch and truly dedicated to the education of the children. I was shocked to learn that she stays afterschool for several hours everyday working with the children. I was also pleasantly surprised at the amount of activities (field trips, guest speakers, events) the school had. The PTA and volunteers are also heavily involved in the school... which makes a world of difference. The campus is expansive and even includes a huge garden area. Culmination occurred this week and was a class act! The ceremony included greetings in various languages, the flag salute, singing, dancing, acting, slide shows, and even cake! I am sorry we did not get to experience more years at this wonderful school but grateful that the time we had. This school is a hidden gem!

  • I loved this school. I loved them all. The only thing was that I was the year where the school playground was getting revamped so we didn't get a teacher vs. students softball tournament or the rocket launch (2001).
