Lawndale Elementary School District (LESD) is committed to providing students with a foundation for building brighter futures. Our leaders place students at the center of every decision and our district goals reflect this commitment.
Our primary focus is to increase academic achievement. We continuously improve our instructional programs, and coaches at each school support teachers’ knowledge and skills. We ensure our earliest learners are off to a great start by offering a high-quality Preschool, TK, and Kindergarten programs. We continue challenging our students with a rigorous academic program as they complete their elementary and middle school educations. Our state-of-the-art Library Media Centers and 1:1 computer programs enhance 21st-century learning and prepare students for future success.
Beyond academics, LESD recognizes the importance of social-emotional development. We foster safe and positive school environments where everyone is welcome. Student Support teams at every school nurture our students to thrive socially and emotionally. Our extended day program, Realizing Amazing Potential (RAP), supports extracurricular development and offers STEAM-focused learning that includes coding, “tinkering”, robotics, literature, folklorico, marching band, and arts programming.
Parent engagement enhances student achievement, and our Family University program provides parents with the tools to join us as equal partners in their student’s education. FamilyU families participate in workshops, volunteer activities, and school committees and develop the skills to support learning at home and become successful advocates for their student’s education.
At LESD we strive to ensure access and equity for all, offer quality education, and provide safe, positive, and nurturing learning environments to prepare and propel our students to become tomorrow’s leaders!
