Principal's Message

Welcome to New Lexington School -  Home of the Dolphins!  New Lexington School is proud to serve students in kindergarten through sixth grade in the El Monte City School District.  

At New Lexington School, our staff is dedicated to providing an extraordinary educational experience to our students and ensuring that they all achieve at high levels of academic proficiency.  With continued professional development and working together as a professional learning community, we are committed to academic excellence and the social emotional well being of our students.  

As a Leader in Me School, we also believe that every child is a leader.  Utilizing the Seven Habits, we work on helping students identify ways to make good choices in their lives that bring about positive outcomes.  These choices begin here with us, but eventually transfer to choices made at home and ultimately in their future.  We are excited to continue the Leader in Me at our school.        

Additionally, we are extremely proud to be starting the district’s first dual language Mandarin program.  The focus of our dual language program is to prepare global citizens for a multicultural and multilingual world by ensuring them the opportunity to be bilingual, bi-literate, and bi-cultural.  It will be exciting to watch our little ones learn Mandarin so quickly!     

During this year, we invite you to get involved and share your ideas with us for making our school even better.  We are here to support you.  Please feel free to reach out to us at (626) 575-2320 if you have any questions or concerns.   We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to creating a historic and memorable school year.  
 
In partnership,

Helen Guo-Perez
Principal of New Lexington School
