About Us


Welcome to Moulton School where our mission is striving for excellence in academics, social and emotional growth, and lifelong learning development.  Moulton Elementary School is a National Blue Ribbon School and a California Distinguished School located in the beautiful community of Laguna Niguel.  The school enrollment currently stands at approximately 700 students in Transitional Kindergarten through Grade 5.  Our learning community at school is filled with excellent students who work hard each day in a warm and challenging academic environment.  The primary focus of our school is student achievement and student learning—particularly in the core academic areas of reading literacy, mathematics, science and social studies. 

In addition to our standards-based academic program, students participate in a wide variety of assemblies, field trips, dramatizations, and hands-on activities.  We are fortunate to have two hands-on, inquiry-based science labs that are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards. There is also an outdoor, hands-on, science lab - our Moulton Garden! 

Technology is a major focus at Moulton.  We integrate technology into the core curriculum.  Technology is readily available in all classrooms and a computer lab is available for students and staff. Student learning is enhanced by our ability to reach out to the world through our school and student safe internet platforms.  This extends our learning beyond the traditional classroom.  Our teaching staff is leading the way with technical and financial support from our very generous Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and Moulton Foundation - RMIQ.  

Mission Statement:

Written below are our Moulton Hawks Mission Statement and Vision Statement.  We look forward each year to working with our school community to fulfill our mission and vision!

The mission of Moulton Elementary School is to provide a place where all students and teachers strive for excellence in academics, social and emotional growth are nurtured, and habits of lifelong learning are developed. Moulton Hawks (students) will learn and grow in a positive atmosphere where the staff, parents, and students are enthusiastic about the learning and teaching process.

Vision Statement:

We believe the most promising strategy for achieving the mission of Moulton Elementary School is to have a staff that:

  • unites and works together in a collaborative manner to achieve a common purpose with clear goals that are based on the state curricular standards and frequent review of student data.
  • seeks and implements a variety of strategies to continually improve student achievement.
  • demonstrates a personal commitment to the academic success and well-being of all students.
  • monitors each student's academic and social progress throughout each school year.
