A few months back, we were interested to learn that the Brea Olinda Unified School District was turning one of its elementary sites into a magnet school with an emphasis on technology and project-based learning.

The Laurel Magnet School of Innovation and Career Exploration has since opened, but that’s not the only big news out of Brea. 

In our latest “OC District Pulse,” our Media Services team visited with BOUSD Superintendent Brad Mason to discuss the changes at Laurel, the district’s robust preschool program, the Global Information Technology Academy at Brea Olinda High School and more.
