Welcome to Estrella Middle School 

Dr. McNeilDear Estrella Middle School community:

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of Estrella Middle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such outstanding students, an extremely dedicated and professional staff, and a supportive school community. I am humbled to be part of this school and to support the students and families.

I have been a devoted Arizona educator for more than twenty-five years. I have worked with students ranging in age from Kindergarten through 12th grade in a variety of roles. I have taught several elementary and middle school grades and love them all equally. Following the work in the classroom, I started my journey into school administration. I was an assistant principal in the Murphy School District as well as a principal in the Washington Elementary School District. Following the extraordinary experience of serving as a building principal I found myself in roles at the district level such as director of assessment and accountability, executive director of elementary schools and assistant superintendent of school leadership. I am thrilled to bring my skills as an educational leader to Estrella Middle School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

On a personal note, I am an Arizona native and a graduate from the Phoenix Union High School District as well as Arizona State University. I am the father of two amazing children, Michaella who is a middle schooler and Michael who starts 4th grade in the fall.

I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will continue to learn much about the uniqueness of Estrella this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my child-centered approach to support our students. As we know, the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, so I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Dr. David McNeil
