Education is the most powerful weapon art

Letter from the Principal

Jessica De La Cruz, Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome the 2017/2018 school year.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Ombudsman Charter Northwest family.  My priority as your newly appointed principal is to serve our students and school community with passion and commitment.  My educational background consists of a masters of administration in leadership, and I look forward to using the knowledge acquired during the program to lead a successful center.  I am honored to have a dedicated team of educators focused on helping every student succeed.

After several years of working at the university level as an academic counselor, I believe that secondary education is imperative for student success. At Charter Northwest, we encourage our students to be individuals, but we also hold them to high academic achievement.  Charter Northwest promotes individualism not only through academic achievement but our student leadership team and dedicated student journalists.

For the past three years at Ombudsman Educational Services, I have been fortunate to work with outstanding leaders.  In the past year, Michael Goto, our Associate Superintendent was committed to our Charter Northwest students, but also to the development of his dedicated staff.  I was mentored and coached by an exceptional administrator who took Servant Leadership to another level.

Our dedicated staff is excited to provide our students with the education they deserve, and we look forward to building a positive relationship with all of our parents.  We believe that family support is paramount to our student’s success.  As we began the 2017/2018 school year, please don’t hesitate to contact me regarding any thoughts and concerns you have about our learning community.

Our Charter Northwest promise to the students is always to be firm, fair, and consistent.


Educationally Yours,

Jessica De La Cruz, Principal
