Principal's Message

Welcome to Larrea Middle School!

I am so humbled and excited to welcome our first class of 7th graders! Future 7th and 8th graders, we can’t wait to have you here on campus. I hope you are just as excited as I am to be part of a brand new school! You’ll be making history every single day from picking our school mascot to selecting school colors. Each class, thereafter, will become part of our remarkable history and will help establish a tradition of excellence at Larrea Middle School. 

In our classrooms, our students will be working hard every day. They will come to school ready to learn, complete assignments, make positive choices and in the process, build memories and create lasting friendships. Our staff will also be working hard to support our students. They will create an engaging and rigorous curriculum that improves literacy, they will prepare students for high school and the A-G environment, and will offer CTE career pathway programs like Robotics and Medical. We’re working towards a school where students feel safe, valued and are academically successful. Staff will feel inspired, heard and have access to the necessary resources, so that they can reach and motivate every student. We’re reimagining education in the right way!

There will be days when things are tough. Many of our students will be faced with adult situations that are outside of their control. However, as a community and as a school, we will not let our students fail. Our students’ futures will not be dictated by their challenges! We will teach our students to create their own futures. Each student will be provided with the resources to overcome and will gain the skills to persevere. Like the Larrea plant that is native to our region, our students will learn to thrive in spite of their environmental conditions to become successful, productive members of our community who will go on to make positive and powerful changes to leave a truly remarkable legacy for future generations. 

I’m looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. With kindness, hope, excitement and sincerity, I wholeheartedly welcome you to Larrea Middle School!
