Laura Carrera, school principal of Da Vinci School for Science and the ArtsMy name is Mrs. Laura Carrera-Estrada and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Da Vinci School for Science & the Arts. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, extremely dedicated staff, and an overall supportive school community. I feel very fortunate and grateful to be part of this school, and to support the students and families. I am most privileged to work with our accomplished Superintendent, Dr. Gonzales.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-five years in a variety of roles. My service began as a high school Social Studies teacher and a campus Instructional Specialist. My administrator experience includes serving as a high school Assistant Principal for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, specialized magnet programs and as the Dean of an Early College High School. I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Da Vinci and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Da Vinci this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my student-centered approach to support our students. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved. I look forward to meeting you soon!
