Principal's Message

A Warm Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year!

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year. My name is Jacqueline Ramirez, and I am honored to be the Principal of Ellen Ochoa Middle School.  

I have been in education for the past forty years in many roles including: paraeducator, facilitator, teacher, assistant principal, and principal. I am excited to be the principal at Ellen Ochoa Middle School where we are dedicated to fostering a partnership with students, parents and our community to prepare our students be life-long learners and successful citizens.  

Our teachers collaborate to ensure we provide rigorous instruction in an inclusive environment that emphasizes the social-emotional well-being of each of our students. Ellen Ochoa Middle School staff is a community of educators who participate in Professional Learning Communities to ensure best instructional practices to meet the needs of our students. Our teachers collaborate together to ensure rigorous and engaging grade level standards for students.  

We have a dedicated and experience counseling staff that supports our students. Our emphasis this year is to ensure our students attend school daily and arrive on time at our 7:40 a.m. start time. This is a skill we will be asking for your assistance with.

Again, I am honored to serve this amazing community. I look forward to partnering with you in educating and supporting and supporting your child. 

Warm regards,

Jacqueline Ramirez
Principal of Ochoa Middle School
