About Our Principal, Laryn Nelson


    Laryn Nelson


    Welcome back to another amazing school year where our theme is "We are a RAINBOW of possibilities".  This theme represents who we are as a school, as a school community, and as individuals.

    At Lake Forest Elementary, you can be sure that everyone is seen here for their unique abilities and possibilities.  We believe that it is our God-given gift that we can transform the world by way of educating our children, not only in academics but also by teaching them how to be kind and responsible humans.  We are an International Baccalaureate school that strives each day to ensure we represent ourselves through all of the Learner Profile attributes.  

    As the principal of this prestigious school tucked away in Sandy Springs, I am honored to work alongside a group of people who truly believe in who we are and what we stand for in all that we do.  You can be sure when you visit our campus, you are going to be greeted with a smile and leave with a smile. You are going to see happy children who have adults who nurture and believe in them.  

    This year begins my 31st year in education and the second (and a half) year leading with love at Lake Forest Elementary.  And I am so lucky and blessed to have been chosen to be here.  If you are lucky enough to come by our campus, please stop by and say hi.  I'd love to meet you... 

    Roaring with Joy,

    Laryn Nelson
