Discover This School
At Gordon J. Lau Elementary, we believe that all children can learn. The primary goal of our school is to provide children with skills which will enable them to fulfill their potential as individuals and as responsible, successful, and contributing members of a global society. Our students are engaged in relevant learning which promotes retention and application to real life experiences. We believe in frequent and ongoing communication with parents. We also communicate, collaborate, and network with community agencies to benefit students and parents.
Gordon J. Lau School has a culturally and ethnically diverse student population. To meet the linguistic and academic needs of our limited English-proficient students, English Language Development and biliteracy (Chinese and Spanish) programs are offered at every grade level. We support our students with paraprofessionals, a literacy specialist and computers. We believe in validating, promoting, and celebrating cultural and linguistic diversity on a daily basis.
