Biography

Marvin Jacobson.
Founding Director, Marvin Jacobson, has spent the last 64 years in the field of education, with 61 of those years right here at Laurence—the school which he founded and grew into what it is today: a four acre sprawling campus, where 300 kindergarten through sixth grade students love to learn every day. Mr. Jacobson always knew he wanted to work with children, and he went to New York University to obtain his Bachelor’s degree in psychology before attending UCLA’s graduate program in elementary education.

In 1952, a then young Marvin was approached by a group of parents whose children had attended his summer camp—one of his post-graduate undertakings. These parents saw such growth in their children over the short summer months that they urged him to start a school of his own, where their kids could benefit from his “Total Child” philosophy and emphasis on the performing arts, experiential learning, and global emphasis, year round.

As it so happened, "Mr. J" (as the children affectionately call him) did just that—he opened a two room school house for 12 five-to-ten year-olds on his parents’ 3/4 acre property in Valley Glen, California. Two years later, he met his wife, Co-Founder/Educational Consultant Supervisor, Lynn Jacobson, and the rest is history. The school flourished, changed, and reinvented itself for the next sixty years to stay on the forefront of education and to become the major success it is today—a place where students are provided a personalized and well-rounded education that ensures their academic, social, emotional, and physical development and a place where they build character, explore the arts, science, technology, and the world, as well as paint, dance, jump, play, read, evolve, and grow.
