Welcome to Coatimundi Middle School
Gutter Graphic

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 Message from Our Principal

Cavalier Families,

As we begin our third month of school, I am thankful that you are part of our amazing learning community. All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. We are indeed a hard working and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-levels of learning.

To ensure that we are able to continue to stay connected, check out our school website, Facebook, and monthly newsletters. We welcome you to stop by to volunteer and be involved here at CtMS. It is important to have good communication between us all. I have an open door policy and welcome you to come and visit. Our teachers and staff are available to work with you and your child as well. Don’t forget to check in on your child’s academics, class schedule, and much more by using ParentVue. It is a great tool for you to use to stay up-to-date. If you do not have ParentVue, please reach out to us so that we can connect you.

Your commitment to ensuring that Coatimundi remains a celebrated and successful school is wonderful. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to continuing to work with you and your child throughout the school year. 

Together, I know we will continue to make this school year one of growth and achievement for all.

Your partner in education,

Rebekah Cabrera
