School History

Moreno Elementary School helped lay the foundation of learning in our community over one hundred years ago. We take pride in our continued tradition of building educational success for all children. Built in 1962 and recently modernized, we are proud of the splendor of our current campus environment with its many majestic trees flourishing. 
Our students thrive as well in a learning environment that is rigorous, relevant and responsible. Moreno's Professional Learning Community focus has helped cut the AYP learning gap in half in just three years. We're excited to be the top performing API Title I school in our district. That's why, as the Moreno Mustangs, we say we have "Horsepower to Learn!" 

Our grade level teams get together weekly to collaborate and clarify what students are expected to learn, identify those not learning and find ways to help them learn, as well as challenge students already proficient. We affirm and celebrate our diverse cultural heritage while reinforcing our common bonds with an emphasis on patriotism and respect. 

Our performing arts programs over the years have performed in front of thousands in the community, in addition to our School Board and at a recent City Council meeting. Moreno's Black History Month performances have packed the house for the past seven years running. 

We're happy to have many valued volunteers helping daily on campus assisting in areas such as music instruction, parent group meetings, weekly marquis updates, and integrated technology. Informative, interactive, and consistent communication between school and home is important to our school improvement effort. We've made the most of communicating with parents of our students with disabilities by enabling our teachers to build a highly touted Basic Skills learning program. 

From having our district's Teacher of the Year, Principal of the Year, and one of the Top 10 Heroes in the Inland Empire for 2005-06, Moreno Elementary School will continue to shine as an exemplary Professional Learning Community model for the next hundred years of student success.
