Welcome to West Mesa

Dear West Mesa Community:

It is my distinct pleasure to continue working with you for my fourth year as Principal of West Mesa High School. West Mesa Administration would like to thank students, families, and staff for contributing to a productive start to the school year.  With the opening of E hall, as well as additional construction taking place on campus, it has taken everyone working together to make a great start to the school year.

As new facilities open at West Mesa, we want to continue the rich history of academic, extracurricular, co-curricular, and cultural excellence. My goal is to continue to build upon the culture of excellence for all students and staff. It is our mission to:

  • Ensure every student feels welcome, connected and a part of the West Mesa family.
  • Provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment to ensure each student receives a high-quality education needed for academic success and to reach his or her goals for college and or career opportunities.
  • Advocate for all students as they prepare for high school graduation and beyond.

This year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of West Mesa the best possible educational opportunities in preparing them to be world class citizens; ready to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school.

I want to encourage your involvement as we work to provide the best possible education to the students of our West Mesa community. I encourage you to check grades and attendance weekly on ParentVUE, which can be found at We will be kicking off our attendance matters campaign now in the month of September and will be encouraging every student that “Every Day Matters.” Any student missing two days a month for the school year for excused and or unexcused absences are considered chronically absent.  Please encourage your student to come to school every day, as “Every Day Matters!”

As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I encourage you to contact me with your ideas, suggestions, and concerns. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment. I look forward to working with all West Mesa community members to help make this the best year yet.


Proud to be a Mustang!
