School Leader Notes

Dear Students & Parents,

Welcome to our amazing school. It is being transformed right before our eyes!

It is my honor to welcome you Mabel Mattos Elementary School, a learning community school in the Milpitas Unified School District. It has been my pleasure developing the relationships that bring us together as a community in service of our students. The 2018-19 school year was a wonderful year of joy and growth for all of us and 2019-20 is just around the corner!

At Mattos, we strive for excellence in developing our young people to become all they aspire to be. We do this with a caring community of staff, students, and parents who work together to create academically and emotionally nurturing environments supporting the various modalities of learning. Students reach proficiencies in core content standards as well as learning and innovation skills to become creative, innovative, self-directed learners to apply skills with the moral imperative of social responsibility to better humanity.

Inherent in our learning communities are systemic structures that guide responsiveness to our students' academic and social emotional needs. Through personalized learning, students get the instruction and direction they need when they need it. Our learning communities also provide multiple opportunities for students to engage in learning using the learning modalities that suit their learning styles.

I look forward to partnering with you as we open Mabel Mattos Elementary, MUSD’s first learning community school!
