I have a 1st Grader at AWALA and I can remember touring the school as a Kindergarten parent and absolutely falling in love.

Ms. Smith-Klein espouses canned, politically correct rhetoric while hiding incidences of bullying, children ...  Read more

This is our daughter's second year at Arroyo West. Arroyo West Elementary is a great public school; the teachers are wondeful and enthusiastic. The office administrators are also very helpful and friendly.

The school is good, Teachers are FABULOUS but principal is not someone you can trust in.
