Principal's Message

Welcome parents, guardians, community members, and students to STEM Preparatory Elementary School! My name is Brooke Jackson and I am honored to serve as your Founding Principal! I have been in the field of education for over 18 years, and have most recently served as elementary principal of a high performing charter school in South Los Angeles for the past 6 years. I am eager to meet and greet each one of you through our Community Meetings, Orientation and Registration events, and any other events or activities that will be taking place here at STEM Prep Elementary School.

STEM Prep Elementary School will be the third school operated by STEM Prep Schools, Inc. in the Jefferson Park community. We are committed to disrupting the status quo of inequitable access to high quality STEM pathways for women and minorities by cultivating a family of students and staff who solve problems through collaboration, innovation, passion, and perseverance. We emphasize the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development of each child and strive to instill high standards for academic integrity and leadership in our students. Through our programs, students are given the technology, skills, and knowledge to be effective members of our school community and a global society. STEM Prep ES will be the only STEM-themed elementary school serving the Jefferson Park area.

We are committed to doing all we can to make STEM Prep Elementary School a place for every student to learn, explore, and grow. We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students. We live by our core values:

 We are family.

  • We build our legacy by caring for, learning from, and supporting each other.

 We are agents of change.

  • We disrupt the status quo by being daring, reflective, resourceful, and resilient.

We are STEM thinkers.

  • We solve problems through collaboration, innovation, passion, and perseverance.


I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
