Excellence Girls Elementary Academy Principal

Excellence Girls Middle Academy Principal

Lenda Nguyen

Lenda is a passionate educator and leader who finds her greatest joy in working with middle school students.

Growing up, Lenda had a series of champions that shaped her roadmap to college and her work in education. First among them was her family, who immigrated to the United States when Lenda was four and emphasized education as the singular pathway for success. Lenda was also part of the first cohort of Rainier Scholars, which offers a pathway to college graduation and career success for underrepresented students of color.

As soon as Lenda stepped into a Brooklyn classroom through Teach for America, she knew this was where she belonged. Having taught and led in middle schools throughout her career, she is so grateful to have come full circle as the current principal of Excellence Girls Middle Academy.

Partnering with Families

We value families as their child’s first teachers, and strive to partner with parents in ways that honor your important role. Our doors are always open, from welcoming parents into our schools to fostering consistent and clear communication with teachers. Don’t be surprised if you receive a text with a photo and update on your scholar’s progress! We also host a series of events throughout the school year aimed at building community with and among our families.
