Meet the Brawerman East Team
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.
Brawerman East is an intimate environment with small class sizes where teachers get to know and truly care about the children.
We are a tight-knit community with a high level of collaboration among the faculty and an active parent body, committed to learning and using innovative pedagogy.
