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 Families,

Happyy March! Here are some ways that you as parent/guardian can help your child be successful when studying for a test.

  • Make sure that your child does all homework and all school assignments, as this will help make sure your child is prepared for the test.
  • Encourage your child to do well, but don't pressure him/her. You may stress him/her out. It is important for your child to stay relaxed for the test.
  • Keep a positive attitude about tests and provide a quiet, well lit area with little distractions to help your child study efficiently.
  • Make sure that your child gets enough sleep on the night before the test.
  • Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast and avoid heavy foods that may make him/her groggy and avoid high sugar foods that may make him/her hyper.
  • Make sure that your child gets up early enough so that he/she will be on time to school.
  • Talking about the test with your child can relieve stress about test taking. If your child is struggling on his/her tests, talk to him/her about it, and meet with his/her teacher to find out the best way to help your child.
  • Praise/reward your child when he/she does well on a test or for his/her hard work preparing for a test.
  • Encourage them to do better if they don't do well.
  • Review the test with your child after he/she has taken it, go over any mistakes, and make sure that he/she understands what was wrong and how he/she can improve for the next test.

Please make sure your child is at school every day. School begins at 7:35 a.m. and ends at 2:50 p.m. Attendance is a critical component of student success.

Don’t forget to like us on Facebook and see more of all the wonderful things going on! Thank you all for your continued support as we work together ensuring our students are successful. 

Your partner in education,

Rebekah Cabrera
