Jordan Academy ~ Aug & Sept 2020

Jordan Scholars Can and Will Succeed!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

Mrs. Rubio's Message

I am thrilled to continue to serve as the principal of Jordan Academy during this 2020-2021 school year. I am looking forward to continue to collaborate with the Orange Unified School District and our school community to ensure that we are successful in preparing our students for the future.


My journey in the education field began right out of high school as an instructional aide and activity supervisor at the elementary school I attended as a child. I taught in the Santa Ana Unified School District for 18 years. In SAUSD, I also held a position as an Assistant Principal at an elementary school for three years. Within this position, my passion grew in creating positive school culture and building relationships with staff, students and parents. Now I begin my fourth year at Jordan and it continues to be an amazing experience working with such an awesome community!


Jordan is the second elementary school in OUSD to implement a Spanish Dual Immersion Program and the first to integrate newly adopted Computer Science standards. We have been working closely with our District experts, Lego Education, and OC Stem (UCI School of Engineering) to create a Computer Science curriculum based on the CA K-12 Computer Science Standards. Integrated curriculum has been created and is tailored to this unique program. We are very excited of the opportunities we offer students!


As an educator, I continue to make every effort to ensure that each child is treated with respect and is in a safe school. I believe that it is important that families and staff members work collaboratively to help students succeed. My personal mission is to ensure that students will be well equipped to impact, influence and contribute to a global society with the freedom to explore and develop their strengths. It is not going to be the traditional year, but we will still work hard to make sure every student has a successful school year!
