Principal's Message


Dear Parents, Students, and Families, 

I want to welcome everyone to Ramona Elementary School! Home of the Terriers! 

I am proud and excited to be the Principal of Ramona Elementary School. 

I have had the opportunity to serve in the Moreno Valley Unified School District since 2006 as a teacher at several schools, such as Serrano Elementary, Mountain View Middle School, and Landmark Middle School. I have also held site administrative roles as Mountain View Middle School Assistant Principal, Sunnymead Middle School Principal, and Vista Del Lago High School Assistant Administrator of Instructional Improvement and Academic Coaching.

I strongly believe in connecting with the school community and working as a team to achieve wonderful outcomes. I value the input of our school community and will consider all opinions.  If you have any questions or concerns, I will be available. Communication is the key to understanding.

Every school day will be amazing. I am excited to lead all of the students into a future-ready education daily. Our school has amazing teachers and staff who are all here to improve all students socially and academically. All of our students will improve academically and socially throughout the school year.

I look forward to building positive relationships with the entire school community. If you need to contact me for any reason, please email me at 


Mr. Joseph Ochoa

Principal of Ramona Elementary
