Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians, Students, Staff Members and the Yucaipa-Calimesa Community,

I am blessed and honored to serve as the principal of Mesa View Middle School. I look forward to working with the Gold Ribbon Mustang Family to ensure all of our students are productive learners, leaders, and citizens of the 21st Century.

Back in 1947, as a student at Morehouse College, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character--that is the goal of true education." Fast forward to 2015, students attending Mesa View Middle School are still being challenged in all subject areas to be critical thinkers. We accomplish this by providing a rich STEM education to all of our students -- weaving it into the core subjects -- while also teaching our students how to be problem solvers, builders, designers, thinkers, and project leaders.

The “Magnificent Mustang Family” is a strong cohesive team! Our commitment to excellence was recognized by the California Department of Education as a 2015 California Gold Ribbon School. While we will celebrate receiving this prestigious award, the Mustang Family cannot rest on our past accomplishments. My goal is to inspire and empower all stakeholders to exhaust all of our resources and creativity so that all of our students are “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow”.
