Welcome to Masuda Middle School, Home of the Monarchs
Welcome Monarchs to the 2022-2023 school year! I am so excited for this year with the Masuda Family as principal. This is my tenth year as an administrator in the Fountain Valley School District. Previously to joining FVSD in 2013, I served several years as a math teacher, school counselor, and assistant principal within the Garden Grove Unified School District and the Westminster School District. I am looking forward to a new journey with the Masuda community, where the tradition of excellence will continue.
Opening in 1975, Masuda Middle School was dedicated to Kazuo Masuda for his valor and heroism during World War II. As Kazuo graduated from Huntington Beach High School, it is fitting that the last 46 years of tradition at Kazuo Masuda Middle School have been devoted to providing an excellent education to the students in the Fountain Valley community. With a focus on Growth Mindset, the Masuda staff is committed to mold students to be effective communicators and creative thinkers who will be successful and responsible citizens.
Masuda offers a wide range of both rigorous and relevant courses and programs. Our academic classes explore literature, mathematics, science, history, Spanish, robotics, instrumental music, choir, drama, and leadership. Opportunities exist for accelerated classes as well as extra-curricular sports and clubs. For students needing extra help, intervention classes are provided in language arts and math, as well as Homework Help after school.
Watch for our “Masuda Weekly Email” that will be sent out every Friday afternoon via Parent Square. This is a great way to follow important dates and events that are going on around campus.
I am so excited to see all of the Masuda students and families and look forward to a “roaring” 2022-2023 school year!
Principal, Masuda Middle School
