Principal's Message

Welcome to Dearborn Elementary Charter Academy!  Our school serves a vibrant, culturally diverse community in the San Fernando Valley.  We are nestled in a beautiful residential community directly behind Dearborn Park. 
Teaching and Learning: Dearborn students are smart, inquisitive and creative learners.  We provide our students with rigorous, hands-on learning that embeds 21st century skills.  Their educational journey includes standards based lessons that will eventually prepare them to enter college and beyond.  Our entire faculty continuously is introduced to the newest educational pedagogy; this summer they will be trained at USC for Gifted Professional Development. 
Socio-Emotional Learning:  Our students are provided with a safe and nurturing environment.  Our staff understands that educating the whole child includes not only academic needs but social emotional needs.  Dearborn's discipline policy is deeply rooted in positive behavioral incentives.  Our teachers and staff have had extensive Social Emotional Training from CSUN and The Ronald Reagan Library that aims to decrease the amount of negative discipline by use of student movement, team building, and positive reinforcement. 
Technology:  Our staff has been trained by Apple Engineers and most classes are equipped with Smart Boards.  We currently have 2 iPad classroom carts that rove between classrooms to provide standards based lessons through the use of technology.  Our PTA also funds a full-time computer teacher every year. 
Supplemental Programs: Students are emerged into various programs that provides them with a strong arts-based program.  Our art programs range from Fine Art, Orchestra, voice, recorder to Ballroom dancing.  
Our school is a community school that understands student's needs.  We understand that parents have a choice regarding their child's school placement so we aim to provide an amazing experience that they won't forget.  Finally, Dearborn prepares all students to be life long learners and contributing members of society.  We welcome you to visit our school and you too will see the magic and why our students are exceptional!
