Principal's Message


Yorba Linda Middle School has a rich history of providing world-class educational experiences to meet the unique needs of all of our students. We have been recognized nationally as a model site for PLCs (Professional Learning Communities) and by Project Tomorrow as a Speak Up Loud and Clear school. YLMS has been recognized three times as a California Distinguished School, a Gold Ribbon School and recently earned the very prestigious Schools to Watch Recognition. YLMS is at the forefront of integrating technology into the curriculum. Our staff takes pride in helping our students reach their full potential by providing quality instruction and a safe and nurturing environment to learn in. Achieving excellence is a project that takes effort in many different aspects of life. At YLMS we strive to do our best each and every day with one goal in mind: Student Achievement.  The implementation of district adopted programs have been a vital tool to the alignment and integration of common core instruction. 


Led by our ASB, Pride and WEB student leaders, our teams host school wide activities throughout the schoolyear to help students feel connected and teach them the Bobcat Way.  The most evident characteristic of YLMS is the positive climate that is apparent upon stepping foot on campus. Caring staff seek to nurture the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of their students.


I would like to encourage and invite parents and community members to become active members of our amazing and very supportive Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). The support of our PTSA truly allows us to “Dream Big” and makes all things possible for our kids.


I am very proud to be a part of this phenomenal school community. I consider it a privilege to work alongside knowledgeable and wonderful staff and parents that hold such high expectations, continue to raise the bar for academic achievement and personal accountability for their students and themselves. I am certain you will be impressed with the commitment of our staff and volunteers and their dedicated work to support high-quality instruction for every student, every day, and in every classroom. I invite you to join me in making this a great year for our students!


Educationally Yours,


 Dr. Tamar Kataroyan
