Principal’s Corner

David Rodriguez

Hello Lion Families,

I am extremely excited to serve as your Proud Principal for the upcoming school year. LGA continues to grow and evolve to provide quality programs to prepare all of our students to be college and career ready, productive, responsible, and engaged global citizens. We will continue to implement challenging academic programs via our two innovative pathways- Visual Arts & Technology and Business Entrepreneurship. 

I can’t wait to watch our students’ achievements continue to grow in the coming school year.  I would like to thank all of our families for choosing to send your students to LGA to receive a quality education and achieve at such high levels.  You are all essential to the success of our school. Parents and students, I encourage you to get involved in our school programs,  join our organizations like clubs, teams, PTSA, and attend our social and athletic events.  Being connected to campus life is proven to improve success!

I hope that you have had a restful summer and are just as ready as we are to have an excellent 2021-2022 school year!  It’s hard to believe, but the first day of school is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to continue our collaboration with you in developing graduates that are college and career ready, productive, responsible, and engaged global citizens. 

Throughout the summer and coming school year, please find important school information through our website and Infinite Campus. Should you need additional help, please feel free to contact our office.  Our office will be open during the summer from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm to meet any needs you may have.

I am eagerly anticipating the upcoming year and welcoming our families back to campus. The first day of school for students is Thursday, August 12th.  School begins each day at 8:15 am and ends at 3:35 pm. To help facilitate collaboration between school staff, our school has an early release every Wednesday at 2:00 pm. for all students. 

Traffic is always more congested during the first weeks of school. We are striving to lessen the impact of traffic in and around our school during drop off and pick up. Thank you in advance for cooperating with our staff in keeping all of our students and parents safe during these high traffic periods. If you have any questions about our school, programs, or expectations, please don’t hesitate to contact us or visit our website or our digital backpack at
