Principal's Message

Welcome to Ranchos Middle School, home of the Mustangs!!! My name is Chris Imperatrice and I am very proud to be the principal at RMS.  Ranchos Middle School excels in many areas and has been recognized as a California Distinguished School.  The staff at Ranchos Middle School is committed to providing quality education in a safe and positive atmosphere for each student. Our goal is to make RMS the best middle school program it can be.  I look forward to the challenges, events, and experiences that we will experience together as a growing school.  If you have any concerns or thoughts, please feel free to visit the site.  My door is always open!!!!  Go Mustangs!

8th Grade Promotion Information

Good Evening 8th Grade Families, I would like to share with you Ranchos Middle School’s plan to celebrate our 8th grade students during the present Shelter in Place ordinance. On Wednesday, June 3rd from 9am to 1pm we will distribute promotion certificates to all 8th grade students through a drive-through process. Students can pick-up their certificate any time between 9am and 1pm at the front office loading zone. Students will remain in the car during the process. Students do not need to dress-up for the event. It's imperative that students stay in their car during the process to follow the Shelter in Place ordinance in Madera County. RMS staff will be present to salute students, names of each student will be announced when students receive their certificate, Premier Studios will take pictures of students receiving their certificate in their car, and the campus will be decorated in honor of our Class of 2020. Secondly, we will release a Virtual Promotion Ceremony Video via YouTube Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:00pm as well. The virtual video will follow the same format that RMS has traditionally used over the years with speeches from Superintendent Rodney Wallace, ASB President Ellie Sano, Liberty High School Vice-Principal Kandace Osborn, RMS Principal Chris Imperatrice, department awards, and slides of all of our promoting 8th grade students. Each 8th grade student will have a slide dedicated to them in the video with their name, favorite RMS memory, and groups that they were involved with during their time at RMS. Please feel free to contact me at with any questions. We are excited to celebrate the RMS Class of 2020! Chris Imperatrice
