    Welcome to beautiful Maclay Middle School, WHERE we thrive as champion learners!

    "Connecting Student Achievement with Human Dignity"

    Our mission is to ensure that every child is educated, guided, inspired, and empowered with all of the necessary skills and knowledge to achieve the fullest potential.

    Our vision is to create a school where students master abilities to:

    • Demonstrate language proficiency, literacy, and numeracy

    • Communicate effectively in writing and speech

    • Recognize problems, analyze them, and generate solutions

    • Make decisions and take responsibility for doing so

    • Learn how to learn

    • Cooperate with others in a myriad of venues, including college and the 21st century workplace.




    The LAUSD PARENT PORTAL is a one-stop online system that securely connects parents and guardians to their student's essential data.

    Tutoring and support





    Following the guidance of our medical advisors and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health – and subject to changes to County Health Officer Orders – beginning Monday, June 13, 2022 and continuing for the new school year, Los Angeles Unified will implement a “response testing” protocol: 

    Instead of requiring every student and employee to test weekly with a PCR test, only those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or who have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive, will be required to test. (Students and employees at Early Education and Care programs will continue to test weekly with PCR testing through the end of their school year, which is June 30, 2022.) All testing will be conducted with take-home rapid antigen tests, which are available for students and employees at your school or worksite. All school campuses will also continue to use the Daily Pass portal for daily health screening questions, monitoring rapid antigen test results and to notify individuals if they are a close contact of someone who has tested positive.

    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!
