Principal David Rios

Dear Major General Murray High School Students, Parents and Families,


I am honored to have been appointed the interim principal for Major General Murray High School. I am humbled every day by the students of our district and will work tirelessly to ensure they are ready for college, career, and life.


I am in my 22nd year of education where I began my career as a Special Education teacher at El Capitan High School where I also coached varsity baseball and football and served as the athletic director. I have been a high school assistant principal and served as a Special Education Administrator. As an administrator in the district office at San Diego Unified School District I oversaw 24 schools and most recently, I was the assistant principal at Madison Middle School.


I am committed to partnering with our parents and community to ensure every student is supported to find their strengths, interests, and values.


I can be reached at or via telephone 760-631-2502 if you have any further questions or concerns.
