Welcome to Coatimundi Middle School

Reg button


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 everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I am so thankful for having the opportunity to work with all of the students and staff at Coatimundi! As we enter the holiday season, it is important to focus on the wonderful gifts we have in our lives, and I know that working in the field of education is a gift to be cherished. 

The end of the first semester is nearly here already! We are encouraging students each day to be good citizens and scholars. You may also view your child’s report card by using ParentVue. Please take the time to talk to your child about his/her grades. The end of the semester is a good time to talk with your child about his or her progress and to set goals for the next semester. 

I would like to continue to encourage you to be as involved as possible in our school. I hope you will join us for any of the school site council or booster club meetings in the coming year. Your participation in these groups is crucial for the continued success of our school. 

One of the things that makes the holidays so special is the music that seems to be playing everywhere. We would like to share some wonderful, holiday music with everyone on December 16. One of my favorite things to do is to spend some time with Mrs. Cadena and her students in the band room. The young musicians practice many hours, and we want all of you to come and hear the results of their committed work. Please join us for the winter band concert on the December 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Sincerely,

Lerona Dickson

Lerona Dickson, Principal
