Hello Academies at South Mountain Students and Families!
My name is Michelle Gutierrez- Sandoval and I am the Assistant Principal of Student Success/Academy Principal of Public and Social Service. I am proud to share that I am a graduate of South Mountain High School Class of 1992. I am also a product of the South Mountain Community College ACE Program; the ACE program opened the doors to my future academic successes and is still an opportunity available to current Academies at South Mountain students. I completed my undergraduate degree at Arizona State University, graduate degree at Grand Canyon University and post graduate work at Ottawa University. I am currently in my tenth year in the Phoenix Union High School District and twenty third year in social service and public education. In those years I have had the privilege to serve many students, families and community members. My daughter Viviana and I live within the community I serve and have developed many lifelong friendships within in school system and community. I started my career in social service and public education the Balsz Elementary School District, many moons ago.
I am committed to preparing students for college career and life. Students- I will ensure that you have a supportive, loving and academically challenging environment, please take advantage of every opportunity available to you! I wish you the best high school experience possible and know that we believe in you! ¡Si Se Puede¡
