Welcome to Coatimundi Middle School
Gutter Graphic

Located at the end of Avenida Coatimundi and nestled away into the Patagonia Mountains, the Spanish Colonial style architecture of Coatimundi Middle School creates a welcoming impression of culture and community. Our school is located in the town of Rio Rico, Arizona, approximately 15 miles north of the Mexican border town of Nogales and is part of the Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District. Our school population is primarily of Hispanic heritage with a cultural capital centered on family and community.

The adage “it takes a village to raise a child” in the context of education can be translated to, “It takes a professional learning community to effectively educate our students.” Here at Coatimundi Middle School we are always striving to be an effective professional learning community. We were rewarded for our efforts by the Arizona Educational Foundation with an A+ Status in 2011. The Arizona Educational Foundation created the A+ Schools of Excellence Program as a comprehensive school assessment tool to identify, celebrate, and recognize overall educational excellence in schools throughout Arizona.

Our mission and vision statements are our school’s guiding forces. You might notice that present in both the mission and vision statement is the word “everyone.” All stakeholders must be involved in the learning process in order to be successful; we must act in rhythm to achieve a true professional learning community.


A+ School of Excellence


A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents/Guardians of Coatimundi Middle School Students:

The final month of school is already here. With so much going on, this will be the busiest month of the year. We ask that students continue to focus on academics and positive behavior so they finish the last quarter successfully. We will mail home the fourth quarter report cards, honor roll, and perfect attendance certificates on May 22, 2015.

Congratulations to our eighth grade students and parents on your transition to high school. We are very proud of you all. The eighth grade transition ceremony is Thursday, May 21 at 2:30 p.m. in the Rio Rico High School gymnasium. To ensure that everyone has time to make it to the ceremony, we are releasing all CTMS students at 12:30 p.m. Please remember that you must wear your school uniform to this event. Any student not wearing a uniform will be unable to participate in the ceremony. There are no exceptions to this rule. Students may bring four guests on this day. Please check your mail for a letter with detailed information regarding the transition ceremony.

Good luck to all of you. Have a fantastic, safe summer!

Sincerely,

Cesar Miranda
