Principal's Message

Greetings Parents and Students:

     It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Del Mar High School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of Del Mar High School  and to support the students and families. 

     Along with the teachers and staff, I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Del Mar High School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure that all students have an opportunity to graduate from high school.  As you know, we will begin this year teaching and supporting your students via Distance Learning.  Rest assured that our teachers and I are fully committed to working together to connect with your students and ensure their learning and support will continue.  We will focus on building strong relationships, implementation of all Common Core Standards, effective strategies to engage students during Distance Learning, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement. 

    I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Del Mar High School this year and in the years to come.   Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my student-centered approach to support our students and teachers.  Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to meeting you soon!  


Kind regards,


Luis F. Montoya, Principal
