The La Honda Educational Foundation (LHEF) was founded in 1991 by a group of parents who wanted to provide more services to La Honda Elementary School than state funding would allow. LHEF is a 501(c)3, all-volunteer organization so your donations and purchases are tax deductible. All the money we raise goes to fund enrichment & academic programs for La Honda Elementary students.
Thanks for supporting our schools!

John Sears opened the first La Honda School in 1870, in the second building erected in town. Even in those early days, the townspeople of La Honda recognized the importance of a community school. For almost 150 years, La Honda Elementary School has educated its community's children.
