El Roble Intermediate School

Principal's Message

I am privileged to serve as the Principal of El Roble Intermediate School. El Roble is dedicated to academic excellence and to the personal, physical, and social development of students. All students are challenged to reach their full individual potential in a positive, student-centered, teacher-guided environment. Our staff believes that a school wide emphasis on providing opportunities for students to develop sound decision making skills will help prepare them in their transition from elementary school to high school and beyond.

Middle school years are a time of transition. One of our core beliefs is that a supportive, nurturing, and positive environment is a critical element of a successful middle school. We believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. We believe that a partnership between parents and the school is essential in meeting the ever-changing needs of our young people. We believe everyone benefits from an environment that promotes student learning and accountability. We believe that all students need to be “connected” to our school. We believe that it is our responsibility to set high standards for achievement and to support our students in meeting and exceeding those standards.

We further believe that a strong elective program enhances the overall educational experience of middle school students. At El Roble, we seek to give our students a broad range of experiences through our music, drama, art, yearbook, industrial technology, computer technology, and leadership elective programs.These beliefs serve as the foundation of everything we do at El Roble Intermediate School.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you during this school year. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions please email me at samartinez@cusd.claremont.edu or call me at (909) 398-0343
