Our second school principal, Mrs. Alicia Rios continued the formula, compelementing exisitng programs with an innovative style. She was followed by our third Principal, Mr. Joel Garcia. Yvonne Zamora, our school's fourth prinicpal, served our campus for over twenty years and left a lasting impact at Mims. Our current school principal, Esteban Lucio, comes to our campus with a wealth of knowledge and leadership experience.
