Today is exciting. tomorrow is possibility.
A highly committed and caring staff, a strong emphasis on academic rigor and a warm family environment allows David Lubin Elementary School to provide the high quality educational experience for which we are known. By effectively utilizing paraprofessionals and resource teachers, we provide leveled intervention in English-language arts for all students during the school day. This award-winning model allows for small group instruction at the students’ instructional level.Combined with weekly collaboration meetings for the teachers and paraprofessionals ensure constant communication about students’ needs and successes.
The mission of David Lubin Elementary School is to instill a love of scientific inquiry and application and to empower students to pursue a life of choices by learning in an interdisciplinary environment that emphasizes the strong work ethic and critical thinking needed to solve problems in the real world. Our focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare students for the future. To be effective in the 21 st century, citizens and workers must be able to create, evaluate, and effectively utilize information, media, and technology.
David Lubin believed that if he helped others, he would benefit as well. We recognize an unprecedented opportunity to engage and include all students in the challenge and promise made possible with a rigorous innovative STEAM program. We want to establish STEAM as an integral part of learning for a future in which science can belong to us all. Students may participate in activities that develop their individual needs or interests in a variety of areas. David Lubin offers Programs that assist in furthering a child’s academics as well as enrichment classes and activities that augment the standard curriculum.
My name is Richard Dixon and I am proud to serve the David Lubin community as school principal. With our relentless commitment to preparing students for tomorrow’s opportunities, it is my privilege to support our dynamic learning environment that fosters critical thinking, innovation, and perseverance through an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math-based teaching and learning. Growing up in London, I have learned the value of preparing for opportunity and an appreciation of diversity through experiences as varied as working as a stockbroker in London, to teaching English in rural Japan for three years. Before coming to David Lubin as principal in August 2013, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to serve several city communities as teacher and administrator, and now continue my passion to work with our dedicated team to teach our students to think, innovate, and create. On a personal note, I have been married since 2000 to Debby, who is a SCUSD teacher. We have a 7th grade daughter. I enjoy vacationing with my family, cooking and eating, and supporting Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
