Welcome to Coatimundi Middle School

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 and Students,

Quarter two is in full swing. As a way to continue success for our students, it is very important that your child attend school every day. As a parent or guardian, it is possible to plan ahead in order to limit your child's absences, make school attendance a priority, and help your child from falling behind if it is necessary to miss a day of school. You can do this in the following ways:

  • Help your child get to school on time every day.
  • Follow the school's guidelines and attendance policy, and report excused absences immediately. At the beginning of the school year, review the school's rules and make sure you understand whom you need to call if your child is going to be absent. 
  • Check homework each night to see that your child understands and completes the day's homework assignments.
  • Take an active role. Stay involved with your child's daily experiences at school by asking how the school day went, and then listening carefully to what your child shares with you — both the successes and struggles. Make it a point to meet your child's teacher and friends.
  • Locate potential sources of anxiety. If your child frequently appears upset or reluctant to go to school and cannot tell you why, schedule an appointment with his or her teacher or school counselor to talk about possible sources of the anxiety.
  • Keep updated on school events and announcements. Read the school documents that your child brings home and take note of important announcements and dates, such as back-to-school night and parent-teacher conferences.
  • Try to limit the amount of time that your child misses school due to medical appointments or illness. If possible, avoid scheduling doctor's appointments during the school day. Allow your child to stay home only in the case of contagious or severe illnesses.
  • Plan ahead. Schedule family events with your child's school schedule in mind. Plan holiday celebrations or family trips during weekends or school vacations. In the case of family emergencies or unexpected trips, talk to your child's teacher as far in advance as possible and set up a way that your child can work ahead or bring important homework on the trip.

Your partner in education,

Rebekah Cabrera
