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:

I hope you have enjoyed a nice summer break with your family. On behalf of the faculty and staff of CTMS, I would like to welcome you and your child to the 2016-2017 school year! 

As you know, the staff at Coatimundi is dedicated to the continued success of each of our students. We are pleased with the academic achievement of our kids but we want to strive to make these achievements even higher! This year, one of the key areas of focus for our teachers will be the Professional Learning Community (PLC). The PLC practice creates a system where every student is guaranteed a rigorous and relevant learning experience. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need any assistance in preparing for the school year. Remember to attend the Back to School Blitz on July 30 at Calabasas. There will be a variety of resources for you and your student.

I am very excited about the upcoming school year! You can be assured that we are well prepared for your child and we will create an environment that will allow them to thrive during their middle school years! Let the 2016-2017 year begin! Please take a few moments to read my letter in full

Sincerely,

Lerona Dickson

Lerona Dickson, Principal
