Principals Message

Principal's Message 

Thank you for visiting our website
We are nearing the end of another school year.  It is an exciting time full of possibilities.
As we celebrate the success of our promoting 8th grade students, we are excited to enroll new students for next school year.

This year we celebrate receiving  full accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  This accreditation recognizes the work that we have been doing to provide a world class education to our students.  We remained committed to providing a safe learning environment where students can gain academic knowledge to succeed at every level and to grow as a global citizen. 

I hope that you will take some time to review all the exciting programs that we offer to our community and beyond.  For next school year we will offer one magnet program that encompasses the activities that students are most attracted to.  Our re-designed magnet program - HEAT magnet will stand for Health Engineering, ART and Technology.  We offer a Robotics class that continues to gain more interest from our students.  Our dual language in Spanish gives some students the opportunity to learn and practice in their native language, and to others the opportunity to learn a new language. This year, we are excited to offer an Korean language and culture class that is already becoming a favorite among our students.


We strive to become the school of choice for every middle school-age student who lives in our neighborhood and beyond. To achieve that goal, our teachers continue to meet with their department peers to develop and implement best practices for providing a first-rate learning experience for all students.
Our school seeks to form relationships with businesses in our neighborhood such as Paramount Studios which remains a significant community partner as they bring resources, programs and volunteers that enrich our students’ lives. Through our partnership with Paramount Studios our students have access to Young Storytellers where students will have the opportunity to write stories that can be made screen-ready. Another essential partner is the LACER after-school program which is a vital source of enriched opportunities in sports, art, and academic support for our students. There is, however, no greater partner in our effort to provide a successful learning experience to all our students than our parents and guardians.
Our goal is to provide every student with an environment that fosters their social and emotional well-being while at the same time creating an environment that promotes academic excellence with the support of teachers, parents and administrators. Our administrative and support team will also promote academic excellence by rewarding students who show dedication and commitment to be at the top of their class.
In 2022, our school celebrated 100 years of providing  quality education to the community. For one hundred years Le Conte Middle School has served the Hollywood community by providing students with the foundational knowledge that allows them to successfully navigate through to their next stage in life. Our alumni serve communities across the city and beyond.  We are excited to start a new century to serve and support our community, and we look forward to the partnership with our students' parents and organizations around us.  As they say in the business, stay tuned!
We hope you will join us and support us as your community school.


At your service,

Eduardo Duran
