Gus Garcia Young Men's Leadership Academy

School Leadership


Mr. Jose Mejia


Mr. Gavino Barrera 

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as an Assistant Principal to the community of Gus Garcia YMLA. Like our YMLA Creed says—"I take pride in my community and will work to make it a better place"—this has always been my essential driving force to provide a school that delivers in academic rigor, a safe place and a spirit of family. In 23 years of education, I have served as a High School English Teacher, ELA Coach, Assistant Principal and a Principal. It is with this experience and dedication that I will pour my heart into our academics and our stakeholders. I look forward to another amazing year at Gus Garcia YMLA.
