Welcome from the Principal

We welcome you to the website for the Los Alamitos Elementary TIGERS!

We are excited as a school, staff, and community for a tremendous year of learning, achievement, and success. We have the best teachers at LAE using district signature practices and ground-breaking educational teaching techniques to give each of our students an amazing education.

LAE is an award winning school. We are a California Gold Ribbon School, which is an award that recognizes outstanding educational programs and practices. LAE has also been recognized as a California Distinguished School, a National Blue Ribbon School, and a Title 1 Academic Achievement Award School.

What truly makes LAE “THE PLACE TO BE” is the involvement we have with our parents and community.

The acronym T.E.A.M. – “TOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE” is used at LAE because true learning comes from a partnership between teachers, parents, students, and the larger community. By working together, we give every student the ability to achieve his or her dreams. If you want the best for your school, then become involved. Come into the main office to learn about how you can be part of the T.E.A.M.!

Four easy ways parents and the community can become involved are by: 

  1. Attending monthly PTA and meetings
  2. Attending School Site Council Meetings
  3. Participating in our Booster Club activities with Friends of Los Alamitos Elementary (FLAE) through fundraising events
  4. Helping out your child’s teacher in any way you can

Come join our family and find out why "LAE is the place to be"!

Thank you,

Mrs. Jenny Padilla 
Principal, Los Alamitos Elementary School
