Principal´s Message

Dear Stern MASS Community,


My name is Veronica Elias and it is an honor to serve as your principal and to continue the incredible task of moving our school community forward to ensure our scholars are prepared for college, career and life. I have been an educator for overs 20 years, starting my career as a high school Spanish teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District. After 14 years in the classroom, I transitioned to Administration. I joined the Stern MASS community in July, 2016 as an assistant principal, until I was given the opportunity to serve as Interim Principal in November, 2022. In May, 2023 I became the proud principal of this amazing school community.


As we embark on another exciting academic year at Stern MASS, I am filled with pride and enthusiasm for the journey ahead. Our school stands as a symbol of excellence in offering a rigorous education program, focused on math, science and STEM opportunities for our students.


At Stern MASS, we are not just a school; we are a community dedicated to academic excellence, innovation, and growth. Our commitment to fostering a culture of high achievement is unwavering, and I am continually inspired by the dedication and passion exhibited by our students and staff.


Our reputation as a high-performing math and science school is a testament to the hard work and commitment of each member of our school community. From our dedicated teachers who go above and beyond to provide engaging and rigorous instruction, to our motivated students who embrace challenges and strive for success, Stern MASS is a place where opportunity thrives. By upholding our strong instructional practices, nurturing an inclusive school culture, and having an equity lens we best ensure all students are supported.


I encourage each of you to explore the opportunities that Stern MASS has to offer, whether it be through rigorous coursework, extracurricular activities, or community involvement. Together, we will continue to inspire, challenge, and support one another on our collective journey toward excellence, explore innovation, and push the boundaries of knowledge, empowering our students to become the leaders of tomorrow.


Thank you for being an integral part of the Stern MASS community.


With gratitude,


Veronica Elias, Ed.D. Principal
