We’ve been getting to know our local school districts this year through a new segment called OC District Pulse, and one of the benefits has been seeing new educational technologies and innovative learning strategies in action.

Founded in 1896, La Habra is the northernmost district in the county, serving about 5,000 students from kindergarten through the eighth grade. In recent years, district leaders have made a push to modernize classrooms, leverage instructional technologies and promote project-based learning.

But don’t take our word for it. Watch the brief video above featuring former Superintendent Susan Belenardo. And for more on the La Habra City School District, visit lahabraschools.org.
