    Los molinos is a rare find. Staff is caring and very understanding to all student needs. My child has excelled here...will be sad to leave when the time comes. The PTA offers so much financial support to the school along with fun family activities!

    Our school Los Molinos is constantly striving to help the kids do better and improve. I like the fact that they are always guiding the kids not only to study but to achieve more to learn more and to respect each other. They always have fun school related activities planned for the kids and parents. The principal and teachers are approachable and are focused on our kids best interests. I would love to see the schools black top area including the basketball courts be re-done that would be a big improvement.......

    My daughter is a 1st Grader this year. She attended Kindergarten here as well. The Principal and staff are very friendly with a high focus on reading and mathematics. The students are friendly and the families are very involved. Class sizes are small and expectations are high. We love Los Molinos!

    Both of my sons attend this school. I have a 3rd grader and a kinder. They love this school. My wife loves this school and volunteers on a regular basis. The school is relatively small - approximately 300 students. The school is indoors which is a unique feature. It is located in a very safe neighborhood of Hacienda Heights. Getting in and out of the school is very easy - even during peak pick-up and drop-off times. I am very happy with the principal. She is very responsive and quick to address parents needs. This is a great school and I recommend it to all of my clients.

Combining test scores extracurricular activities parent involvement intelligent mature and caring teachers Los Molinos is a real gem. A small intimate private school feel in a public school district.
