About Our School
Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to Serrano Middle School. My name is Mauricio Gormaz and I'm honored to welcome all students and families to the 2016-2017 school year! I'm looking forward to continuing to work with our school staff, students, parents, and community members to build upon past successes. Serrano was designated an AVID National Demonstration School in 2015 and in 2014 Serrano was selected as National School to Watch. Two national recognitions which exemplify our successful and hard working students and staff!
Serrano is committed to our students and their preparation to meet the demands of the 21st Century. Students will be challenged every day to meet and exceed the rigorous Common Core State Standards by engaging in critical thinking and problem solving in real world situations. This rigorous journey won’t be endeavored alone. The entire staff is committed to supporting our students along their journey while holding each and every student to high expectations. We encourage students to explore their interests and individual strengths through our elective program that includes leadership, choir, band, sports, Spanish and many others. We have a variety of support systems to meet the challenges of early adolescence and our award winning, innovative interventions are effective in meeting our students’ needs.
Serrano recognizes that in order for students to reach their full potential, they need to have engaged parents and guardians. There are formal and informal ways you can partner with us. We have monthly Coffee with the Principal meetings and opportunities for parents to serve on our Site Parent Advisory Committee (SPAC) and our Site English Learner Parent Advisory Committee (SELPAC). I also invite all parents to sign up for School Loop (http://serrano-omsd-ca.schoolloop.com/ ) and to follow us on Twitter (@Serrano_OMSD). Both are easy and essential ways to partner with us in support of our students.
On behalf of the entire Serrano staff, I would like to invite students and parents to share in our commitment to support and prepare our students for their future academic careers in high school, college and careers. You’re a Spartan now and are a part of the tradition of excellence established by all past and present Spartans! Together, we’ll ensure this year is successful, exciting, and memorable for every Spartan.
