Principal's Message

 Welcome to Del Lago Elementary!  As one of Mission Viejo’s outstanding elementary schools, we are proud to be able to serve our wonderful community of learners.  We are currently home to approximately 500 students in grades K-6 as part of the Saddleback Valley Unified School District.  Our school has a strong connection with our students and their families, and we truly feel that our supporting and enthusiastic community is what makes Del Lago such a special place.

The staff at Del Lago are committed to preparing students to become 21stcentury learners. We use technology and active classroom engagement to help students achieve academic success.  We also seek to support students as they develop the additional skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity that will help them become lifelong learners. 

I am honored and privileged to serve in my fifth year as Principal at Del Lago this year.  As an educator, I believe in prioritizing our students first and doing what is best for children.  Students are most successful when we provide a safe and positive environment, establish high expectations, and support students in reaching their goals.  I wish for every student to enjoy coming to school every day, and I seek to get to know each of them on a first name basis.  Finally, I aim to support learning opportunities that prepare our students for college, careers, and beyond.

Parents are a vital part of our school community, and we invite you to come visit us at Del Lago. We look forward to partnering with you for your child’s education.  Go Dolphins!
