Principal's Message

On behalf of the faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Leonora Fillmore Elementary School, which has a long tradition of community and pride. Leonora Fillmore Elementary School is a neighborhood school located in the east side of Lompoc on East Pine Avenue. Our 30 highly qualified teachers serve approximately 600 students in transitional kindergarten (TK) through sixth grade.

The staff at Fillmore works extremely hard to provide our students with a rigorous, research-based, meaningful curriculum fostered through the positive relationships and connections that our staff makes with our students. Our staff and parents work closely together to support all efforts to help our students learn 21st century skills that will help them on their journey to becoming college and/or career ready. Fillmore prides itself in creating a safe and positive environment. We teach character education and expect our students to do their very best and be kind and thoughtful citizens. We conduct monthly award assemblies recognizing our students for their growth in reading; developing positive character; and demonstrating safe, respectful and responsible behaviors at school. Fillmore students were the first in the district to have access to technology at any given time. Students in grades 2-6 have 1:1 Chromebook access; 2:1 in grades TK-1. Fillmore is embarking on its journey to become a true 21st-century learning environment, and we are proud to offer our students access to tools and learning to help them to become truly college and career ready. Students at Fillmore also have the opportunity to involve themselves in a wide variety of programs and activities that address many students’ interests. Art and music classes inspire our students in grades TK-6. Fillmore students can also participate in after-school programs such as ASES.

It is my responsibility and goal to continue to support my innovative and nurturing staff as they cultivate our students in becoming problem solvers, lifelong learners and productive citizens with a global perspective. I believe that every child can learn, and that it is our priority to make sure that each child has every opportunity to achieve their dreams.

Please feel free to contact us at (805) 742-2100 for more information.

Go Mustangs!
