Welcome to Walt Disney Elementary School
Walt Disney Elementary school promotes staff, parents, and students striving to work collaboratively toward the achievement of school goals, its vision, and expected learning results. Together, we endeavor to create a safe environment, which fosters the development of responsible caring students who are critical thinkers and lifelong learners in pursuit of personal excellence, and who can adapt to the challenges of the future. Back in 1974, Disney students were housed at Neil Armstrong School while awaiting completion of this facility. The district had asked the students who would attend the new school to select a name. The criteria for the name selection was that this be an American hero. The students voted to name the new school after Walt Disney, the man who had brought so many wonderful children's films into existence. Learn more about Walt Disney. There are three Walt Disney Elementary schools in California. The other two are in Anaheim (the home of Disneyland) and Burbank (the home of Disney studios).
