Our scholars work hard every day in and out of the classroom.

MEET THE PRINCIPAL!

About Lynesha Richardson

Beginning at a young age, Lynesha Richardson has been dedicated to the field of education, and for the past 7 years, she has been devoted to E Prep Woodland Hills. As a young girl growing up in Michigan, she realized that getting a quality education was not an easy feat and this reality became even clearer when she attended Bowling Green State University and experienced educational struggles she was not prepared for.

Ms. Richardson’s career at E Prep Woodland Hills began in 2012 as the founding 6th and 7th grade Science teacher. After teaching 5th grade Science for a two years and becoming 5th grade team lead, she decided she wanted to make a greater impact on the school as a whole. She spent two years as the Dean of Scholars and is currently sharing her talents and love for education as the Principal of E Prep Woodland Hills.

Ms. Richardson strives to ensure that all scholars, no matter where they come from, receive the quality education they deserve. She experienced first-hand the importance of a high-quality education, and understands how central it is in making a meaningful impact in the surrounding community. She values the opportunity to empower young leaders who will one day continue to fight against injustice and work to make a difference.
