Dr. Cristina Tancredi Cruz, Principal

Dr.Cruz has been in the educational system as a teacher or administration for over 30 years and thoroughly loves her work, she says, “it is her calling.” 

Prior to her administrative career, Dr. Cruz was an elementary school teacher for 16 years. During her teaching tenure Dr. Cruz was acknowledged by former United States Representative Ileana Ross-Lehtinen for outstanding and dedicated work with inner city children and their families.  During the Covid epidemic Dr. Cruz and her team of teachers were featured on Dateline News for their dedication to the community of Corona.

Dr. Cruz leverages the expertise and knowledge gained during her experiences in administration to create and foster her leadership skills and practices. Her core philosophy is simple; you are only as good as the people you surround yourself with. She bases her success on her teacher and student's success.
