Welcome to Marana Middle School
Marana Middle School, within the Marana Unified School District, is a 7-8 middle school offering the highest quality inspiring and enriching education in a safe, nurturing, and award-winning learning environment. Home of the Falcons, Marana Middle offers comprehensive academics, gifted and special education, computer science classes, and a full range of fine arts and athletic programs. We have two full-time school counselors, health services, librarian, music, arts, physical education, athletics, and much more.
We take great pride that our school was awarded the prestigious 21st Century Community Learning Center federal grant through the State of Arizona, providing funds toward before and after school enrichment clubs and intervention opportunities and programs for students and families. As a Marzano High Reliability School that has achieved Level 1 certification, creating a Safe, Supportive, and Collaborative culture, we are committed to transforming our school into an organization that take proactive steps to ensure student success. Using a research-based five-level hierarchy, along with leading and lagging indicators, we can learn to assess, monitor, and confirm the effectiveness of our school.
Marana Middle’s appropriately and nationally certified educators are committed to teaching the concepts and skills students need to be successful in college, career, and life. Our school provides a diverse educational experience for the 21st century learner. At Marana Middle, the core focus is not simply to ensure that our students are taught, but to ensure that they learn. Students are challenged, relationships are built, and teaching is focused on individual student achievement.
The exceptional classroom setting provides students and teachers access to individual mobile devices which supports a student’s ability to easily and comfortably connect with their teacher, fellow students and content; thereby proving an unparalleled learning experience through higher levels of engagement and relevancy. Students and educators are provided the opportunity to work utilizing configurable modern furniture with comfortable seating designed to support collaborative learning.
Teachers and staff believe they are at Marana Middle to meet the needs of our young adolescent but also provide a smooth transition from elementary school through middle school to high school. Our teachers and students work together on teams within each grade level. The students and teachers have high expectations for concentrated academic learning time. Student work is frequently monitored through a well-planned and integrated curriculum. There are many opportunities for student responsibility. We believe that parental support is essential and look for ways to involve parents in their child’s educational process. We endeavor to successfully bridge the time period between elementary school and high school and provide a positive middle school experience.
