Message from our Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

San Marcos Middle School is a thriving community centered
around all students 
reaching the highest levels of academic
achievement, enabling them to expand 
their potential, and
preparing them to become productive, responsible, ethical, 
creative, and compassionate members of society. We strive
to consciously create
an environment of respect and inclusion
and to support ethnic, racial, 
religious, and socio-economic
diversity among all the constituencies
our school.

I am honored and ecstatic to be principal for the 2023-2024 school year at San Marcos Middle School. I truly look forward to serving our community. This year, like every other year, is going to be an outstanding one!
A little bit about myself- I have devoted 26 years of experience in education, 16 of those years in the San Marcos Unified School District, 5 years in Garden Grove Unified, and 5 years with NYC Board of Education. Throughout my tenure, I have served many roles in education- a teacher, a program coordinator, a teacher on special assignment, an assistant principal, and currently as principal at San Marcos Middle School.

In partnership with administration, teachers, and families, my goal is to work collectively and collaboratively to forge meaningful relationships. We know that a strong partnership makes a huge difference in the future success of a child. At SMMS, we recognize the importance of academic excellence and social/emotional development. As principal, I will continue to develop a school environment rooted in student-centered learning where all students can explore new interests in clubs and school activities and cultivate their artistic, intellectual, and physical talents on campus. I believe in the boundless potential of all students; our mission is to create opportunities and pathways for them to soar in their own unique ways.  

I believe that every child deserves to be in an educational setting where they are provided with high-quality aligned instruction needed to be college and career ready coupled with a supportive adult as their personal champion. It is my top priority that all students walking through the front doors of San Marcos Middle School feel inspired and motivated. I am fully committed in our collective efforts to ensuring a school environment that promotes a sense of belonging, collective efficacy, and the inherent belief that ALL MEANS ALL!!

My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at San Marcos Middle School meet their goals and have a successful year!

Best Regards,

Nicky Scott
