Charil D. Macaraeg, Ed.D. - Principal
I am excited to serve as the Principal of Rancho Verde High School. I have served as an educator for many years in various capacities and have been a school administrator for the last five years in the Val Verde Unified School District.
I was born in San Francisco, California and grew up in a military family. After high school, I attended the University of California, Berkeley, where I majored in Sociology. I obtained my teaching credential from CSU Hayward and began my teaching career as an elementary school teacher in Richmond, California. From there I moved to southern California and obtained a Masters In Social Work from CSU San Bernardino. I continued to pursue my passion for working in the education within LAUSD. I joined the Val Verde family in 2004 as an alternative education high school teacher. I pursued my doctoral degree from the University of Southern California and graduated with an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership in 2011. I went on to serve as an Assistant Principal at Citrus Hill High School before coming to Rancho Verde.
My husband James and I have three amazing and energetic boys, Xavier, Vincent, and Dominic, who are students in our wonderful district. My family drives me to always do my best and brings me joy every day.
I am honored to have this opportunity to serve as the Principal of Rancho Verde High School. We will always continue to focus on our shared purpose to provide the best educational opportunities for all students and prepare them with the tools necessary to be successful in the
