Dulles Elementary School is described as the “hidden gem” of the Norwalk La Mirada Unified School District. Our school grounds are some of the prettiest in La Mirada with big beautiful trees, a garden full of flowers planted by our students, and a well-maintained inviting playground. Dulles Elementary is a Spring Beautification award winner for the City of La Mirada! Dulles Elementary School is an exceptional place where all children have the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally, and academically in a safe and positive learning environment.
Dulles’ small school setting and generous parent involvement create a tight-knit community atmosphere. Dulles’ staff and parents are dedicated to providing enrichment programs and events to promote school spirit and foster a positive school climate. Our students work together with PTA throughout the school year to plant and maintain Dulles’ school garden, which greets them every day as they enter the school grounds. Through the generosity of our PTA, Dulles students enjoy a year-long music program, field trips, assemblies, and family nights. Our collaborative school events highlight our students’ achievements and talents with award assemblies and talent shows. Our PTA parents volunteer more than 7,000 hours per year at Dulles! They are truly a vital part of our school community.
Dulles teachers are dedicated and genuinely care about our students. In addition to providing a rigorous academic setting, our teachers also concentrate their efforts to ensure that our students are good communicators, are great thinkers, and are respectful of others. All staff members are involved in creating a very caring learning climate at Dulles Elementary. Our classrooms are print-rich environments that create a warm and welcoming place that supports student success. Our school has established clear performance standards aligned with Common Core State Standards and sets high-level expectations for all students.
Dulles has earned the esteemed honor of a 2014 California Distinguished School. The state bestows this award upon the most exemplary and inspiring schools in California. Dulles is proud of this distinction and of the excellent education we provide our students!
