Principal's Message

Welcome to Mount Miguel High School. I am excited to begin a new year and am anxious to share all the exciting things happening at the Mount. In preparation of student arrival, our teaching and support staff have been busy preparing a safe and rich learning environment for each and every Matador.

Mount Miguel is a great place to learn and grow. All of our decisions are data driven and focused on student achievement. We take pride that we have high expectations for each student. Furthermore, we expect students to attend school regularly, put forth an effort in each classroom, and respect the rights of each individual in our school community. We, as a community, are here to support students all along the way.

The vision of Mount Miguel is to be a school that provides opportunities for academic, social, and emotional growth that empowers individuals to create a positive impact in their school, home, and community.

Welcome, or welcome back, to Mount Miguel. Home of the Matadors! Follow me on twitter @drkhedrick or instragram @ mmhsmatadors.

Your in Matador Spirit,

Dr. Kimberlee Hedrick

New Engineering Program

MMHS is excited to announce the opening of its Matador Engineering Program. Powered by Project Lead the Way,  we are working to build a successful STEM program to support students in their exploration of math and science. Students successfully completing a Project Lead the Way (PLTW) course of study are eligible for college credit and select admissions to San Diego State University in impacted majors like mechanical and civil engineering.

In addition, having experienced the powerful learning involved in engineering, students gain access to internships and scholarships that support their college and career aspirations. The program has been initiated by veteran teacher Harold Mumford who has worked with the Matador community for 24 years. Over the last six years, Mr. Mumford has been a lead mentor and developer of seven competition robotics teams across San Diego county. "Building," he says, "makes math and physics real and relevant. Project-based learning teaches students how to learn while giving them a reason to learn."

We are excited that he is bringing the challenge of engineering education to the Mount and that he will continue to sing, dance, and rap as he teaches students engineering design, principles, and processes. Be on the look out for enrichment programs such as Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) and For Inspiration and Recognition of Math and Science (FIRST) Robotics Programs to come in 2018. MMHS strives to meet the needs of an emerging future.
