Principal's Message

Welcome to the Rancho del Mar High School website. 

I am very proud to be writing this as the Principal of Rancho del Mar High School. As an educator, my guiding principle is having a student-centered focus which is based on the belief that every child can, and will, attain the education and skills necessary to achieve their goals and create purposeful, bright and meaningful futures.  Our team here at Rancho del Mar is committed to providing the best quality education for your child and all of our students. We have worked hard to create and maintain a safe and effective learning environment and ensuring that all students have the social skills and emotional well-being needed to ensure their success at school and beyond. 


The work that we will be engaging in with your students will transcend the boundaries of a classroom. We will work on building relationships and creating a sense of belonging for students. It is important that all students make academic growth while creating experiences where students engage in solving authentic and challenging problems.


I am excited to work with our students, parents, faculty, staff, and community in making this year an amazing experience for us all.



Richard Licciardello, Ed.D.
