    Open Classroom Leadership Magnet School at Conejo Elementary

    The Open Classroom Leadership Magnet School is a unique option for families to become a part of an educational community. Teachers and parents at the school work together to foster a learning environment which not only includes high academics, but also seeks to grow the child socially, emotionally and ethically—by looking for the unique gifts within each child and inspiring the passion inside to allow “the leader within” to emerge, take hold, and make his/her mark on the world. The school uses “The Leader in Me,” a nationally recognized educational program, to help children achieve their personal best by integrating the timeless principles of responsibility, honesty, integrity and respect into every aspect of the child’s school day.
