We are excited to announce effective July 1, 2020 Mr. Marco Garcia will serve as the principal at Fontana Middle School.
Mr. Garcia began his career in 1998 as a middle school math and science teacher in South Central Los Angeles. For the past four-and-a-half years, he has served as an assistant principal at Kaiser High School.
We believe Mr. Garcia’s life experience will serve him well as he takes on this new role. His career has been shaped by overcoming the severe hardships he experienced as a child growing up in poverty in northeast Los Angeles. His desire to prove that he could succeed pushed him to achieve and surpass all goals he set for himself. As a result, Mr. Garcia went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in sociology and psychology from UCLA, a teaching credential and master’s degree in education from National University, and an administrative credential from Cal State Dominguez Hills.
As an educator, he has dedicated his career to providing both students and faculty with a safe and motivational environment, hoping to inspire those around him to strive for success.
“I am extremely proud and honored to be Fontana Middle School’s newest principal,” Garcia said. “With the support of the District and the FMS team, I plan to continue pursuing the goals set by predecessor, solidifying our existing familial and community relationships and ensuring Fontana Middle School serves as a model for academic excellence.”
