Located on a bluff off of Coast Highway overlooking the Pacific Ocean, sits an educational community known as El Morro Elementary School. In today's fast paced society it is refreshing to find a close knit community school where families stop to have a chat with staff, other parents and maybe have a cup of coffee. Staff, parent volunteers (PTA Dads), and the principal meet the buses and cars as they drive in each morning and open car doors to greet each student with a warm smile and a "Good Morning". El Morro is proud to maintain its hometown feel and instill this sense of connectedness to each and every student.
El Morro is located in the north end Laguna Beach, a small town surrounded by the exploding growth of South Orange County and Newport Coast, California. El Morro is one of two elementary schools, which feed into Thurston Middle School. Families come from the areas of north and south Laguna, Emerald Bay, Crystal Cove and the Laguna Canyon. The school program consists of kindergarten through fifth grades and includes a comprehensive Special Education program. There are currently 600 students enrolled in the school.
To extend the opportunity for students to thrive, El Morro has developed a comprehensive after school program available to all students in grades 1-5. The PTA sponsors the after school program and provides scholarships to any student who need assistance. At this time the after school program which includes classes such as Garden Club, Academic Chess, Chorus, Story Telling, Art, Mad Science, Digital Photography, Badminton, Guitar, Violin, Drums, Computer Club, Drama, Golf and many more. There is truly something for everyone in the after school program.
El Morro Elementary is a school where teachers have a passion for teaching young students and helping them to develop a lifelong love of learning. I look forward to working together to inspire of love of learning in all students!
