Principal's Message

Hello Hurricane Families,


Welcome back to San Gorgonio Middle School! We are very excited to have our students and families back to school for the 2023-2024 year. We hope you all had a restful and productive summer with friends and family.


I want to take a moment to share with you our values and philosophy which guides the work we do each day at SGMS. We sincerely believe that school should be a place where students have opportunities to excel in many different ways. We believe we must provide high-quality educational opportunities for students in all classes. We believe we must provide an engaging environment for students to connect and collaborate in meaningful ways. We believe that a positive culture can be the engine to thrust our school forward. We believe that all Hurricanes (staff, students, and families) should work together to achieve common goals. We believe that every hardworking student should also be met by a hardworking adult who is willing to support and help that student achieve their goals. We want to partner with our students and families to find ways to help them reach their potential. Education is a shared commitment among school and community. We look forward to partnering with you.


Most importantly, San Gorgonio Middle School believes in the concept of growth mindset.  We believe we are all learning and growing each day. We want to collaborate together, grow together, and have positive experiences that inspire others. This is how we make our community a better place one day at a time. We want our students to leave SGMS with a positive experience and solid foundation for a successful future. 

We ask our students to take advantage of all that SGMS has to offer. We will continue with the “Go First! Be the Change” theme for this year. In this spirit, we ask students to step out boldly and get involved in a sport or club or activity that will help to build our school community stronger. Be part of the positivity that happens every day at SGMS. 



If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.
