Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

I am thrilled to join the Gilbert community and excited to get started. I have been an educator for over 20 years and have been an administrator with the Garden Grove Unified School District for the last 13 years.

This year we will continue to focus on our District's Strategic Plan and maintain a rigorous and state standards based academic program. I am fortunate to lead quality teachers that use research-based strategies to develop students’ critical thinking skills, including the meaningful use of technology in instruction, learning how to collaborate, and helping students develop scholarly habits and motivation.

Gilbert will continue to support the social-emotional well-being of our students and families. Additional resources have been allocated to support students’ social-emotional needs.

I feel honored and privileged to serve the Gilbert community. I believe an open communication is very important and know that together, we will ensure a positive and productive learning environment for our students. I am excited to help support the students, parents, teachers, and community, and I look forward to meeting and working with each of you.

Mr. Martinez, Principal
