Our Principal

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

My name is Marco Leal, the proud principal at Edgewood Academy, home of the BRAVE Knights. I have been in education for over 20 years: as a tutor, teacher and administrator.  It is an honor to serve the La Puente community, the city I grew up in.


Here at Edgewood Academy, the staff are dedicated to promoting a safe learning environment for our students, create balanced academic and social emotional opportunities to aide them in reaching their full potential and help them become life-long learners.  We are the College Bound BRAVE Knights!


A few reminders to start off the school year:

  • School begins on Monday, August 14 at 8:15am
  • We are a uniform school (khaki or navy blue pants, and white, navy blue, light blue or burgundy polo shirt)
  • Please drive safely and obey all traffic signs.  All exits from the parking lots are right turn only.


 I look forward to working alongside you, the families to create an exciting learning experience for all of our students.  Please know that I am available before or after school at drop-off and dismissal.  You can also reach me by email at [email protected] or call (626)931-7800.

It is my privilege to serve Edgewood Academy students.


Let’s have a great year!
