Our Programs

2020/2021 School Year

In accordance with state and county guidelines, all in-person programs are on hold at this time. Remote learning is facilitated for all students through Schoology -


Arts Program School
El Oro Way has the privilege of being an Arts Program School. This program brings high quality arts instruction in all three disciplines; dance, theater and visual arts. All teachers have been trained by art specialists who teach at our school. The goal of the program is to promote and implement a comprehensive visual and performing arts program available to all students. All teachers integrate the arts into their regular curriculum to provide students with a well-rounded and enriched educational program. Teachers and students alike have been enjoying this expressive program at our school and hope to continue our partnership for years to come.

Wonder of Reading Library
El Oro Way celebrated the grand opening of our Wonder of Reading Library in November 2006. The newly expanded library features a story amphitheater, study cubbies, and even a cozy reading nook complete with fireplace. Additionally, we are currently working on completing our Reading Garden, located just outside the library. This outdoor setting will include a stage area, small grass lawn area, and multiple tables and benches to bring the pleasures of reading outdoors.  

Technology Lab
Technology Lab

The Tech Lab is integrated into all areas of the curriculum as an extension of the classroom.  Each class (K-5) attends computer lab for a scheduled 30-45 minute period every week.  A part-time computer assistant is present.  Students are given assignments that are planned to coincide with current classroom studies.  Early grades are taught basic computer skills.  Older students are taught keyboarding skills, the use of Word, Internet safety, and research skills.




Our Programs:

Blended Learning - The integration of technology into learning activities is termed blended learning. Students in 2nd through 5th grade classes use a laptop or Chromebook on a one to one basis throughout the school day. Kindergarten and 1st Grade classes share a cart (enough devices for 1 class) within their grade level teams. The school provides Lexia Core 5 to all students. This is a revolutionary reading and language arts program that teaches phonics, reading, writing, spelling, typing,  word processing, and grammar! Students can visit to practice skills at home.

Youth Services (Playground)
The LAUSD Beyond the Bell Branch provides one coach to distribute equipment and supervise students in emergencies. Because of the limited supervision, only students in 2nd through 5th grade are allowed on the afterschool playground. It is important to note that this program is very unstructured and does not include help with homework or organized activities on a daily basis. Parents should take this into consideration when making the decision to leave their children on the afterschool playground.

Indian Education
The Indian Education is a special program funded by the Federal Government. The purpose is to provide educational and cultural instruction for eligible American Indian and Alaskan Native students. During the spring semester, the students display artwork at the Autry National Center's Southwest Museum 

Science Olympiad
Each year in the spring, a team of 15 fifth grade students compete in the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad. The purpose of the Olympiad is to increase student interest and recognize achievement in the field of science. More information can be found at
Congratulations to the 2019 EL ORO WAY SCIENCE OLYMPIAD TEAM for taking home a Silver!


Student Support & Progress Team

The Student Support & Progress Team (SSPT) is an integral part of the process that supports success for all students at El Oro Way. SSPT is comprised of the child’s teacher, parents, an administrator, a special education teacher, a facilitator, and other specialists who may be of assistance to the team in support of students at risk academically and/or behaviorally. Meeting monthly, the team discusses strategies, accommodations and interventions that may help a student on his or her road to success. The goal is for each child to flourish at El Oro Way.
