Message from the Principal

Welcome to Brainard Elementary School! We are a California Distinguished School and have a proud tradition of serving students in Lake View Terrace for about 50 years and have students whose parents and grandparents attended Brainard. 


We are the recent recipient of an LAUSD Technology Grant for new iPads, and the Practitioner 3.0 Innovative Designer Grant for individualized instruction for our students in 21st Century technology skills. Our dedicated and caring teachers already blend technology into their instruction, and every child at Brainard, from kindergarten to fifth grade, have had computer time every day. We also have opened a Science Lab where students conduct science explorations with our Science curriculum, Foss kits.


At Brainard, we have a diverse student population and our hard-working teachers address the needs of the whole child to prepare them to be college and career ready as well as good citizens. Our teachers have trained in the MindUp program from The Hawn Foundation and teach our students skills to focus on their studies and how to control their behavior and emotions.


Students are also able to be involved in the free after-school Youth Development Program in which they complete their homework, engage in physical activities, as well as some crafts. 


Our students enjoy their learning on and off campus during special assemblies and field trips to and from such organizations as The Discovery Cube, The Natural History Museum, The LaBrea Tar Pits, Sylmar Wildlife Foundation, California Science Museum, Flights of Fantasy, The Music Center, and L.A. Jazz Society.


We also provide monthly parent workshops on topics of interest to parents and invite parents to volunteer in their child's classroom.


It is my privilege and honor to be Principal at Brainard, and I encourage you to visit us at Brainard and see what our fabulous teachers are accomplishing here with our wonderful students. Please contact me any time with any questions or concerns.
