Welcome to West Portal Elementary! Our school has a proud tradition of academic excellence in both our General Education Program and our Chinese Immersion Program, the very first such program in the nation. Our community is diverse and dynamic and unified and inclusive. We're a big school with a small school feel. West Portal is honored to have been named a 2014-2015 California Distinguished School.
Find deals at local stores that save you money and give money back to the school at no charge to you. Also, there's a new listings page on the website to find businesses that are owned by West Portal families.
