Parent Teacher Association 

We love our PTA and hope you will join us if you are not yet a member.

Our school’s local PTA and the Torrance Council of Parent-Teacher Association (TCPTA) work hand-in-hand with each other. PTA members consist of parents, students, teachers, and neighbors in our Torrance community who provide leadership training, coordinate activities and events throughout the school year, and promote communication between our school PTA and the TCPTA. 

Our PTA looks forward to continuing the great work on our campus and serving our students for years to come!

You can learn more about our school-specific PTA below.
