Principal's Message

Greetings and welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. This year we open our doors as Brea's first magnet school, Laurel Elementary Magnet School of Innovation and Career Exploration (I.C.E.). A magnet school is a specialized school that offers specialized instruction and programs. We are a neighborhood school and all students who are enrolled participate in our magnet program. I am honored and privileged to serve as principal of such a unique learning environment.

Laurel's teaching staff worked throughout the summer to plan and develop a unique learning experience for all students, with an emphasis on project based learning. Teachers participated in a variety of professional development to prepare them to incorporate innovative teaching practices in all content areas on a daily basis. We will provide students with opportunities to explore their interests and think creatively to solve real world problems along with our local business partners. 

The Laurel Elementary Magnet School I.C.E. mission is clear: We are a diverse educational community dedicated to mindfully compassionately engaging, elevating, and inspiring all learners. Here we honor and value students of all backgrounds and learning styles.

Our magnet school thematic focus of innovation and career exploration provides us with a clear vision: We believe all students are innovative thinkers who problem solve, explore, communicate, and strive to be positive citizens and leaders in our community. We honor and appreciate diversity and understand that learning is a collaboration of students, staff, and the greater community to provide a positive student centered and technology rich learning environment that prepares students for a dynamic and advancing future.

Again, I welcome you to Laurel Elementary Magnet School of Innovation and Career Exploration, where all students Explore, Innovate, and Create!
