Head of School

In Fall 2016, Brandon Cohen excitedly began his role as Brawerman Elementary School’s Head of School. A California native, he - like many of Brawerman’s alumni - attended Harvard-Westlake School, eventually moving on to receive his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania. After a brief stint as an airline pilot, Brandon’s passion for educational leadership led him to pursue his graduate degree at the University of California – Los Angeles from the Principal Leadership Institute. His dedication and passion for educating children led him to serve as a teacher and school administrator for 13 years, including principal of the highly regarded Los Angeles Unified School District Downtown Magnets High School. 

His biggest goal as Head of School is to continue the tradition of fostering a supportive community and nurturing environment for students, families and faculty.
