Principal's Message

After teaching for a year at Buchser Middle School and four years at Bowers Elementary School, I crossed Saratoga Creek and arrived at Cabrillo Middle School (CMS), where I’ve spent the last twenty-one years. Now, sporting white whiskers, a pretty good Wiffle curve, a prodigious collection of CMS sweatshirts and an unwavering attachment to this school community, I consider myself fortunate to be part of the eighty-four people who make-up the CMS faculty and staff.
In January, we were treated to a performance of The Goon Show, our school play and another wonderful Respect, Responsibility and Integrity (RRI) Day. In the months to follow, the eighth graders will go on a field trip to San Jose State University (3-18/19), the Butler Carnival will come to CMS (4-24/25/26), we’ll have SBAC (Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) testing for the second time (beginning 4-19), we’ll recruit the second class of the 49ers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Leadership Institute, we’ll have Open House (4-2) and we’ll have another festive Multi-Cultural Day (3-18).
The second semester at CMS will be packed with activity and amazing learning experiences. Encourage your children to get involved in as much as they can. The more they throw themselves into school, the more they’ll get out of it.  I am lucky to have found my place here and I want your children to feel the same way.

The Santa Clara Unified Board of Trustees has established a policy of limited Open Enrollment. Although some schools are already at capacity, this policy allows parents who reside within the boundaries of the district to request enrollment of their children at "any District school which may have space available for additional students."

Admittance to the school of your choice under the Open Enrollment process is done by an annual random lottery system.

49ers STEM Leadership Academy Logo-RGB.jpg

The 49ers STEM

Leadership Institute Comes to Cabrillo


When I’m showing people around Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) for the first time, I try not to boast too much about the solidarity of the staff, the beautifully remodeled campus, the highest test scores in the school’s history or the six-year WASC Accreditation (Western Association of Schools and Colleges), but sometimes I slip and brag a little.


Apparently, some of my immodesty drifted toward Levi’s Stadium, where the 49ers discussed our accomplishments with one of their sponsors, Chevron. These two corporate giants got together with the Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) and the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) and decided that CMS was the perfect location for the creation of the 49ers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Leadership Institute.


Sixty Students from the SCUSD will be selected every year to participate in the Institute. This six-year program will inspire and prepare students with high academic potential to pursue STEM majors at top-tier universities and become future leaders in their fields. In addition to enriched math and science instruction, students have regular access to the Chevron STEMZone, a tech lab equipped with a laser cutter, 3D printers and other fabrication tools. They also participate in STEM events and challenges, and apply their knowledge to solve problems in their community. As the school year progresses, all CMS students will have the opportunity to access this amazing facility.


The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute was built on CMS’s foundation of academic success, acceptance of diversity, a warm nurturing environment and playfulness. I think that if Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo was still alive, he’d dock his ship the San Salvador off the coast, make his way to CMS by land and spend the day playing ball with the UWOC-PL (United Wifflers Of Cabrillo – Pavement League).
