San Gabriel Mission Elementary School

Principal’s Message

To our current and prospective parents, students and families,


  A very warm and enthusiastic welcome to San Gabriel Mission Elementary School – a place where students of faith, wisdom and character are cultivated.  When you enter our campus, you will find yourself surrounded by a friendly, dedicated community with deep historic ties that are enriched by the Dominican and Claretian charisms of sharing the Word and Truth of Jesus Christ and living in service of others.

  We are dedicated to educating healthy, well-rounded students and seeing each child as a unique individual with special God-given gifts and abilities. In partnership with each of you, our greatest responsibility and ministry is to carry out our school’s mission and vision of developing students whose lives reflect Christlike character, live in service of others and are prepared for success in high school and beyond. We believe that setting high academic and moral expectations, appropriately challenging our students in both curriculum and character, as well as providing suitable support systems ensures that each student works at their highest potential.

Our theme for the 2017-2018 school year comes from Psalm 90:17 - May the beauty of the Lord rest upon us and prosper the work of our hands. I believe that with the love of our Lord in our hearts, a clear vision and a spirit of support and cooperation, 2017-2018 will be a great year.

  I thank God for the opportunity to come together with you all to celebrate the traditions of the past as well as embrace the changes and challenges of the future. I look forward to working with our parents and students for years to come and I am honored for having been given this chance to serve all of you.


Mrs. Eva Garcia
