Principal's Message

Welcome to Maclay Middle School, home of the proud lions!


It is an honor and a privilege to serve the Pacoima community.  My staff and I believe every single student who walks through our doors has the opportunity to leave Maclay with all the skills necessary to succeed in high school and beyond.  We believe a cornerstone of this work is that all adults at our school must be unfailingly committed to the fundamental goal of acting in the best interests of the students they serve at all times.  Our five core values underscore our responsibility and our purpose:


1.  Purposefulness: We will act with a goal, a plan, and with intention.

2.  High Expectations for All: Adults as well as students will be held accountable.

3.  A Socially Responsible Community: We will be responsible for ourselves and for our community.

4.  High-school Prepared, College-Bound, and 21st Century Workforce Ready: We will commit to readying our students for all        further secondary and post-secondary challenges and opportunities.

5.  Parents and Community Are Our Partners: We will be responsive to the families and community we are privileged to serve.


We believe the highest goal of a Social Justice Academy will be manifested by striving to create equity. That equity will best be created by providing sound, research-based academic and social/emotional instruction to the students in our care.


We also understand that students play a very important role in their success.  Our three expected behaviors are taught on an ongoing basis to ensure students remain on the right path.  All students are expected to be safe, responsible and respectful at all times.   


We look forward to a great school year!
