Happy 40th Birthday!


A Brief History

Los Encinos School was founded in 1980 by visionary educator Chris Holabird. While the school continues to meet the ever-changing needs of children and families, the Los Encinos mission and philosophy have remained the same since its inception. Los Encinos School continues to be, “a small school with a large commitment to every child,” providing richly integrated educational experiences and character development for children in grades K-6.
