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:

Please remember that our students will begin their AzMerit testing on March 30 through May 6. It is crucial that your child attends school every day. It is also very important that your child gets plenty of sleep and rest, eats a healthy breakfast, arrives to school and class on time, and simple tries their best. Please see our calendar for specific testing days and times. Thank you for your support in this important matter.

We also want to share some great news from Bobbie O'Boyle, the executive director for the Arizona Educational Foundation:

"Congratulations on earning the 2015 A+ School of Excellence™ award. You, your staff, your students, and your community are to be commended for overall excellence and for all the hard work and collaborative effort it took to earn this award. Based on your outstanding application and a very memorable and impressive site visit to your campus, your school has truly earned the Arizona Educational Foundation's A+ School of Excellence™ designation."

This is a great honor for us, and I am happy to share our results with the community! We will hold a school-wide celebration in the future to commemorate this special event.

Sincerely,

Cesar Miranda

Cesar Miranda
Principal
