About Us

School Description and Mission

Ladera Ranch Elementary is  located  at 29551 Sienna Parkway in Ladera Ranch, California. We are attached to Ladera Ranch Middle School. LRES opened on August 27, 2003, and serves students from the community of Ladera Ranch. It is the goal of LRES to create a community  of  learners in which teachers, students, and parents work as a team to create a positive and safe environment so that all students learn.


The campus is a beautiful state-of-the-art  facility. In a first for Orange County, LRES entered into a partnership  with the Orange County Public library. The campus houses the city's branch of the library. LRES is a high tech hub and offers a hard-wired and wireless infrastructure for information technology. This supports the learning with our 1:1 laptop program in fourth and fifth grades which enhances the education for our students in the area of information literacy. 


Our mission is learning. We will ensure that our children will learn more today than yesterday, and more tomorrow than today. It is the mission of LRES to meet the individual needs of each student by providing a rigorous, well-balanced, and  standards-based curriculum. LRES will provide students with opportunities that promote growth so that they can reach their greatest potential - academically and socially - by embodying the principles of Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness.We believe that students will meet their greatest potential if we function as a Professional Learning Community.

We envision a school in which staff:

1. Unite to form a clear vision and goals.
2. Work together collaboratively.
3. Continually study and implement best practices. 
4. Work as a team to monitor student progress.
5. Demonstrate a commitment to doing what is best for each child academically and socially.
