Mr. Mario Cantu
Madison High School Associate Principal
Mr. Mario Cantu was born and raised in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, where he received his Bachelor’s degree. He spent many years in Mexico, but Houston has been his home for the past 27 years. After moving to Houston, he attended the University of Houston Main Campus to receive his Master’s degree in Educational Administration. He has since served as an Assistant Principal at multiple campuses and all school levels. He has spent 27 of his 35 years of experience in the Houston Independent School District. Mr. Cantu and his wife have three children that also live here in Houston. He is extremely passionate about data because he feels that data analysis is directly linked to student achievement. Every day, he tries to live by his favorite quote from Benjamin Franklin, “If better is possible, good is not enough”.
