Principal's Message



My name is Garrett Corduan, during my twenty-five years working in education I have worked in a wide range of positions from elementary teacher to middle school principal. I feel very fortunate to serve as the principal of Mendoza Elementary.


The dedicated teachers and staff at Mendoza have a long history of working to ensure the academic and social/ emotional needs of all students are being met. From its opening in 1999, Mendoza Elementary has offered an arts-focused path for students. We provide specific instruction in the areas of theatre, dance, visual arts and music. As a Visual and Performing Arts focused school, we facilitate multiple arts activities as an avenue to promote a high levels of student engagement, student creativity and student expression.


Encouragement, support, and positive interactions by all will take Mendoza Elementary to the next level. We are here to support our students and families, so please do not hesitate to reach out to your teacher or administration at any time.
