Principal's Welcome

July 2017

To All Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. As the newly appointed principal of Morse High School, I am excited to begin the new school year, and I am looking forward to meeting our incoming and returning students. 

I would like to take a moment to briefly introduce myself. I am Dr. Cynthia Larkin and I have worked in the San Diego Unified School District since August 2000. My educational career began at Morse High School. While at Morse, I taught 10th Grade Advanced English, Honors American Literature through the African American Perspective, and Public Speaking. In December of 2013, I left Morse to pursue an administrative position at Clairemont High School. I was a vice principal at Clairemont High for three and a half years.
I am passionate about the students who reside in the Morse community, and I am excited to return as Morse’s new principal. I am an administrator who strongly believes that all students can achieve at high levels. My goal will be to ensure that ALL stakeholders have high expectations for our students and provide them with the necessary supports to ensure that ALL students achieve at high levels.

I am looking forward to a productive partnership with Morse’s parents/guardians to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. The Morse staff recognizes that for our students to be successful in school, they need support from their home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our students’ success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We encourage you to contact us if or when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings on our campus.

The Morse staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
Dr. Cynthia Larkin
Principal, Morse High School
