    I have 2 children attending Moffitt Elementary School. The oldest is in second grade now and he comes to Moffit from an excellent private school in Torrance. My other child is attending Kindergarten. I am so pleased with the staff. I know from my experience as a parent that Ms. Moreno Ms. Diaz and Ms. Cowen are excellent teachers. I was off from work for 4 months and I got a chance to take and pick-up my children from school and was impressed with the school principal Ms. Lopez. She was very involved when the Kindergartners got off from school and I could see she cares a lot about her students. Most important the curriculum was far more advanced than what I expected from a public school. I believe that positive change is happening and this school is on its way to the top.
