Principal's Message

Welcome to Valley Center Middle School! It's a privilege to return to the Valley Center community as the Principal of Valley Center Middle School.  I am honored to be working with such an amazing team committed to engaging the hearts and minds of our students. Moreover, thanks to the efforts and support of staff, families, alumni, business leaders and others, Valley Center can take pride in having one of the finest middle schools in the county. 

For the 2021-2022 school year, our focus will be to continue to align instruction to the California State Standards, make teaching and learning visible through the implementation of engaging and empowering instructional strategies that promote higher level thinking skills, and use assessment data to set goals for improvement. 

Parent and family involvement are a critical aspect to school success and to the expansion of programs that create a positive school culture.  Information on parent workshops, and how parents can be involved in planning and decision making regarding the operation of the school will be shared via the school calendar and phone/e-mail messages. Our goal is to keep all our families informed and involved. I look forward to working collaboratively with our community and hard-working staff.


Leiani Osugi

It's a great day to be a Thunderhawk!
