Principal’s Corner

Brian Sanino

American Lakes Principal, Mr. Brian Sanino

Welcome to American Lakes School, home of the Eagles!

It is an honor to have the opportunity to serve you as American Lake’s Principal.  This is my eighth year in Natomas Unified and twelfth year in education.  My time in Natomas began in 2015 right here at American Lakes as a teacher and soon after that as a TOSA (Teacher on Special Assignment).  From here I transitioned to Natomas Gateways Middle School and the last 4 years have been in the Assistant Principal role at Natomas High School.  Again, it is an honor to “come home” to American Lakes School as your Principal.

We are excited to be moving toward our authorization in International Baccalaureate (IB) for the Primary Years Program (PYP).  I look forward to continuing this work with our American Lakes community by using a rigorous curriculum and high standards to inspire our students to be globally minded, independent learners.  We will also continue to engage our students, families and staff in working together to implement restorative practices and our Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS).  Together, we can cultivate a positive school culture that connects our campus and community with a student centered mindset.

I look forward to beginning this  journey together and we are very happy that you are here!

Go Eagles!!!
