Principal’s Message

Ochoa Middle School possesses an outstanding reputation in the local community and it is with great pride that we continue to build on our strong foundation. The 2018-19 academic year will mark my 9th year as principal of Ochoa Middle and it is an honor to carry on the Bulldog tradition and continue to serve the local community which is close to my heart. As the state of California transitions to the Common Core & Next Generation Science Standards, Ochoa takes pride in changing with the times and ensuring that we provide a rigorous standards-based instructional program that engages students and prepares them to be successful in high school and beyond. To this end, our administration and faculty are dedicated to creating a safe and positive school climate and in fostering meaningful partnerships with the students, families, and community members we serve. We are proud of our numerous accomplishments for excellence – academically, musically, and athletically – and are proud to say that this excellence is, in fact, “Made in Hayward!”
