Principal's Message

Lugo Elementary is a public Pre-K through sixth grade school located in the vibrant urban
community of Lynwood, California. With approximately 480 students, Lugo Elementary has a
tradition of academic excellence and providing a caring learning environment for our students.
Teachers and staff are dedicated to making a difference in students lives and encouraging academic and social excellence through shared learning experiences. We are committed to helping our students reach their fullest potential and create lifelong learners who will contribute positively to the world.

At Lugo Elementary, each student receives a rigorous instructional program aligned with California State Standards. Our teachers work to make sure student academic needs are met through data analysis combined with collaborative lesson planning. During data reflection meetings, teachers use common assessment data to share best practices and implement common instructional strategies with the goal of increasing student achievement.

Our faculty and staff are active mentors and leaders of student activities, academic competitions, student clubs, and visual and performing arts programs. Teachers also promote literacy through school initiatives such as Family Literacy Night, after-school literacy partnerships, and classroom literacy projects. Our LEAP program provides after-school care for students with a portion of this time used to provide assistance with classroom assignments. Lugo also provides an After School Intervention Program to re-teach essential skills for academic success. Teachers, students, and the entire Lugo Elementary community work together to make Lugo a special place to learn and grow.
At Lugo Elementary, our mission isto ensure each student fearlessly achieves his or her highest academic and personal aspirations while contributing to the greater society. We are proud of our students and proud to serve the Lynwood community.
