Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future


Mr. Jacob Stein 

The Tavares High School Bulldogs would like to welcome Mt Dora Middle School’s 2018 Principal of the year, Jacob Stein, as our new principal.

Mr. Stein began his career in education 20 years ago as an emotional behavior specialist at Eustis Middle School. According to Payne Ray with the Daily Commercial, “Stein’s years working with students who needed extra support created a foundation for his administrative work that his mentors helped him build upon when he became an assistant principal.”

His journey as an administrator began at Windy Hill Middle School and shortly there-after, he moved to East Ridge High School under the tutelage of Julie Robinson-Lueallen.  One of Stein’s major accomplishments as principal at Mt. Dora Middle, was bringing absenteeism from 33 percent to 10 percent.  He also values inclusion and creating a welcoming environment.  He looks forward to working with students and staff.
