Principal's Welcome


Michael J. Hatcher, Principal

Hello Wolverine Families,
I'm very excited and honored to be your principal this school year. I bring to the position 17 years of working in high schools, which includes the last 8 years in administration. It has been and continues to be, a joy to be an educational leader in CUSD. Last year working as your Interim Principal was a great way for me to get to know this community. 
The high level of education that students receive at Aliso Niguel High School is due to the dedication and professionalism of the school’s teachers, staff, dedicated and driven students, and a supportive parent community. I continue to be impressed with the Aliso Niguel community and school pride at TEAL TOWN! I look forward to continuing to support the Aliso Niguel staff.
As we start the school year I look forward to meeting and getting to know students, parents, and school staff. With the ever-changing situation, the administration team and I are here to help and support the community. We are committed to make this school year as close to “normal” as possible, and will always keep the students’ best interest and safety as the priority.
I’m confident working together as a team of students, parents, and staff, we can build upon the strong foundation that has been built over the years. We will continue to encourage and support students at the highest levels to achieve their goals. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out and contact me at I look forward to meeting each of you.
Michael Hatcher
Principal, Aliso Niguel High School
