Message from the Principal




Dear students and Families:

March 2018


Our commitment at Hawthorne Middle School is to provide a safe learning environment where students develop their critical thinking skills and develop additional skills like perseverance, resourcefulness, respect, responsibility, and empathy. We ultimately desire for students to develop into quality individuals who create meaningful lives for themselves and make a difference in a changing global society.


Hawthorne Middle School was recently recognized by WestEd as a Beating the Odds School.


WestEd is a highly regarded nonprofit research, development, and service agency. WestEd works with education entities throughout the United States to promote excellence, achieve equity, and improve learning for children, youth, and adults.

In their large-scale study of over 1,700 middle schools and high schools in California, Hawthorne Middle School made the list of 40 “Beating the Odds Schools,” where both above average student achievement and exceptionally-positive school environments were exhibited.

As the instructional leader at Hawthorne Middle School, I would like to extend my gratitude to my staff, students, and parents. This achievement is due to the collective dedication and commitment to maximize each student’s potential to achieve educational excellence.



Parents, remember to complete and submit the HSD LCAP survey. The survey is available on the district and school website. We also have paper copies of the survey in the office.
