An experienced education administrator, Laurie Kimbrel formerly served as superintendent of Tamalpais Union High School District in Larkspur, California. Laurie Kimbrel now leads as head of school for Georgia’s Brookhaven Innovation Academy.
Located in Norcross, Georgia, the Brookhaven Innovation Academy opened its doors in August 2016. The academy is a charter school that serves students in kindergarten through sixth grade, with authorization from the State Charter Schools Commission of Georgia to expand through eighth grade.
Brookhaven Innovation Academy strives to help students reach their full potential while preparing them for the technology-focused 21st century workforce. With an emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), the academy has developed a methodology called Deeper Learning by Design. Through this methodology, every student completes an evidence-based blended learning curriculum that incorporates computer coding into lesson plans.
Students take on increasing responsibility for their own learning under the guidance of the academy’s teachers, who have the freedom to tailor students’ learning to meet their goals.
