Introducing Mike Sciacca, Principal

Dear Ensign Community,

As we prepare for the start of the 15/16 school year, I want to take a brief moment to introduce myself as the new principal of Ensign Intermediate School. I began in N-MUSD in 2003 as a teacher in the Business Academy at Costa Mesa High School.  I served as a Teacher on Special Assignment (Career Technical Education) at the district level and was an assistant principal at Estancia High School beginning in the 2012/13 school year.  I transferred to Newport Harbor High School and am excited about the opportunity to stay in the Harbor Zone as principal of Ensign Intermediate School. 

My wife, Melissa, and I have two children (Dylan, 8 and Savannah, 6), our Boston Terrier puppy, Sydney, and a rotating collection of hermit crabs.

I am honored to serve our community and look forward to working with staff, students, and parents to ensure all of our students make a seamless transition into high school and have a strong foundation of knowledge to propel them into the college and career of their choice.  It’s going to be a great year.

Go Seabees!

Mike Sciacca, Principal
