I recently got a substitute teacher assignment at this school. I've been subbing for quite a few years and I've always been hesitant to go there because some of the other ones in this area are awful. I was pleasantly surprised because I was expecting the worst loud disrespectful students and general chaos. I got excellent coffee in the cafeteria offered to me by the congenial gentleman in charge. The office staff were pleasant. It was obvious that everyone was making an effort to create a good learning environment. One of the most important factors that makes this school great is that it is small. Small schools with less crowding make for a calmer quieter environment that leads to better student outcomes. The one drawback to this school is that it is downwind from refinery pollution which is very worrisome. It smelled of gasoline. And depending on the wind direction it is also directly upwind from the very significant pollution from the L.A. Harbor so I could never work at this school full-time because of the pollution. It's not a safe environment.

4 of my children graduated here and one more in second grade this is a great school they teach very well principal teachers and staff are nice. What can I say but A+++ school.
I have had positive exp's. with the teachers they will go out of their way to work with/speak with you.
This is a wonderful school. The teachers are very helpful and want to teach. I have three children at this school and they are flourishing here. The teachers and vice principal are there for you and willing to help. The new principal is unapproachable but other than that this is a good school where children will learn and thrive.
The teachers are very caring and work very hard for all students.
My son goes to this school and he seems to like it. The campus is ok and the teacher's are pretty decent. He sometimes complains about bullies but all schools have some. Over all it's a good elementary school.
Del Amo has very caring staff that really help all children learn.
Del Amo is a very good school. The principal is involved on all levels and she makes her presence felt at the school. The teachers are trained well and work hard to make sure kids are learning and parents are informed.
