Principal's Message



Foothill Ranch Parents and Students

My name is Mr. MacNevin (A.K.A. Mr. Mac). This year will mark my 30th year in education. I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 5thgrades. I served as a classroom teacher, Educational Technology Coordinator, and administrator in the Capistrano Unified and Saddleback Unified School Districts after spending 3 years as an instructor at the Dana Point Ocean Institute. I feel very privileged to be leading the Foothill Ranch Elementary staff and community as we work together to meet the needs of our Bobcats. I came to SVUSD 15 years ago.  My first position in SVUSD was serving as the assistant principal at Foothill Ranch where I later became principal. I love technology and look for any opportunity to share my love of teaching and learning. My wife is an educator. She is a 5thgrade teacher at Lake Forest Elementary.  Anmarie MacNevin and I have lived in Lake Forest area for about 25 years.  We have 2 children. My son, Jake, is attending his final year at El Toro High School and my daughter, Taylor, is a junior at San Diego State University.

Foothill Ranch is an extraordinary school! Our dedicated and caring staff of professionals work diligently to provide students with the best educational environment possible. Please be sure to stop by our “Why Foothill Ranch” page to hear what makes our school such a top-notch place to learn and grow together.
