Welcome to Mesa View Middle School

Welcome to Mesa View Middle School!  We look forward to the opportunity each day to work with middle school students as they prepare for high school and beyond.  Our job is to prepare our students to be productive leaders, learners, and citizens of the 21st Century. We emphasize this in our motto:  "Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow."

In our mission statement, we are dedicated to:

• Focusing on student learning and rigorous standards through the use of critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, technology, and oral, visual, & written communication skills.

• Fostering academic and personal responsibility based upon respect, integrity, commitment, patience, honesty, perseverance, and tolerance.

• Providing positive leadership experiences that promote social awareness and contribute to the school and the community.

• Developing student self awareness of individual strengths, interests, and personal health so students are prepared for their future.

• Bringing a hands-on, meaningful STEM (science, technology, engineering, & math) experience to every Mesa View student.

We believe that everyone – students, parents, community members, and staff – play critical roles in our school community.  Students are at the center of every decision we make.  Mesa View has the very highest academic and behavioral standards.  We teach, model, and expect students to demonstrate positive character traits such as trustworthiness, commitment, respect, and responsibility.  We have created a safe environment in which all individuals have a sense of belonging and everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

Our primary focus is that of offering a strong academic foundation so that Mesa View students have the tools they need to succeed in high school and what they do after high school.  We firmly believe that all adolescents can learn and that it is our duty to foster this learning.  We believe that all middle school students need to leave us with an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the skills associated with the four core subject areas:  English, math, social studies, and science.  Mesa View’s staff is a highly experienced group of professional, dedicated, and knowledgeable educators and support personnel.  The staff works collaboratively to help students learn, discover, and extend their learning in and outside of the classroom.

Mesa View students will be fully prepared to participate in our technologically-advanced, 21st Century society, a society that needs students to understand the STEM fields.  Mesa View has a modern technological infrastructure that supports the most current computer, multimedia, and networked technology programs.  Our technology plan serves as a blueprint for preparing students and staff for the demands and expectations of a rapidly-changing world.

In our wish to teach the whole student, Mesa View also emphasizes the arts, community service, and going “above and beyond.”  Mesa View students have the opportunity to participate in a vibrant middle school band and choir program.  As a way of extending their learning, students may choose to participate in the challenging Honors Option program, our Mustang Robotics Team, First in Math, and other enrichment opportunities.  Students also have access to various visual and performing arts programs.  Student Council, Digital Media, and Yearbook offer leadership and community service opportunities.  In addition, Mesa View offers a rich curriculum for advanced learners.  Students have the opportunity to enroll in our unique STEM: Advanced Design and STEM: Applied Science courses.  These, and all of the elements that make up Mesa View, showcase our desire to be the best possible middle school for our students, their families, and our local community.
