Torrance Elementary School was an amazing school until budget cuts and the loss of an amazing principal brought it down. Now with 40 kids to a class and no aides to help the teachers it's scores are dropping instead of rising. I no longer recommend this school.

I have 3 kids at this school from kinder to 5th. Despite our government's cuts to education, Torrance El continues to provide an excellent education to ALL students. Parents are getting more involved, teachers are caring and knowledgeable, and we are very lucky to have the BEST principal EVER!

This is our son's first year at this school and the principal, office staff, and teachers are wonderful and supportive. It is great to see the principal outside greeting students and parents. He is also very approachable. The afterschool program, which is run through the Torrance Parks and Rec, is ...  Read more

Many families in our community miss out by assuming their children should go to a different elementary school. Torrance Elem is a great school, providing a great education to our children, and creating positive associations regarding school that will last a lifetime.
