Meet the Principal - Dr. David Mandel

  • David Mandel Thank you for taking the time to visit our MHS webpage.

    My name is David Mandel and I am the principal of Marana High School. Our school is located in the Marana Unified School District in Marana, Arizona. I am very proud that we offer a truly comprehensive high school experience for all students.  Families and students want to have options within a high school while simultaneously feeling a sense of community and belonging. We are able to provide academic and extracurricular programming that is diverse, inclusive, and focuses on students’ interests.


    Because of a long-standing commitment to serving the needs of the whole-child and the Marana community’s investment in our schools, MHS is in a unique position to offer a wide-range of curricular choices.   We offer a wide variety of Advanced Placement course, Pima Dual Enrollment opportunities, Fine and Performing Arts programs, Exceptional Education services throughout the school, and Career and Technical Education programs that prepare students for career and college. I believe that what makes our school stand out in the competitive high school environment is the dedication and compassion that our staff has for our students, and the close-knit feel that we strive for in the classrooms and on the campus. 


    I am positive that your child will find a place to fit in at our high school, and also that s/he will also emerge as a graduate who has many choices about which pathway to take after high school.
