Community, Leadership, and Wellness
The Michelle Obama Elementary School envisions a school community of self-confident, compassionate learners deeply committed to challenging the status quo and mobilizing the school community to take action and create transformational change. We make learning irresistible by dignifying the whole child and facilitating authentic learning experiences through interdisciplinary thematic units.
We set the tone for learning. Each day begins with deep reflection, deep breathing, and soft music.
*The Michelle Obama Elementary School is among the new schools that Superintendent León has opened or reopened since his appointment in May 2018.
