Leo Politi Elementary is located in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles. Leo Politi was an artist and author. His work focused on nature and children. The school is deeply committed to science education. Teachers at every grade level collaborate on Standard's-based science instruction which is rigorous, hands-on, and interesting. This instruction occurs in the classroom, in the student-friendly Science Room (complete with weather station) and outside in the Native Habitat and in vegetable garden beds.
