Studio description: iLEAD Encino is a vibrant and exciting place to learn. The Primary Learning Studio (PLS) cohabitates with the Bethel Lutheran Preschool. This site is very cozy and younger learner friendly. The beautiful open campus that is The Intermediate Learning Studio (ILS) has a park-like feel where learners are encouraged to discover their own learning path that works best for them. The iLEAD Encino Learning Studios are used exclusively for the educational support of pupils who are enrolled in iLEAD Encino’s independent study programs. During time in studio, students can avail themselves of learning support from facilitators and the learning community as they pursue their studies based on individualized learning plans. Student progress is evaluated based on work produced and projects completed, rather than on time in studio. iLEAD Encino uses Project Based Learning (PBL) as the primary instructional model, and the studio directors have taken the lead in collaborating with the entire staff to train and model proven and successful PBL practices.

The communities we are proud to serve and be a part of: The neighborhoods of Encino, Studio City, and Sherman Oaks are the primary local communities we serve. We also attract learners from local areas bounded by the following communities: Burbank to the east, Playa Vista to the south, Simi Valley to the west, and Tarzana to the north. We are proud to say that we are members of these neighborhoods ourselves and many of our own children are iLEAD Encino learners!
