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 gifted and special education, Coding to the Future 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, and much more. Additionally, MMS was awarded the prestigious 21st CCLC grant, providing funds toward before and after school enrichment clubs and intervention opportunities and programs for students.
Marana Middle’s highly qualified 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 by incorporating student Chromebooks and collaborative comfortable configurable furniture, into comprehensive, relevant and rigorous instruction. In Marana schools, the core focus is not simply to ensure that students are taught, but to ensure that they learn. Students are challenged, relationships are built, and teaching is focused on individual student achievement.
MMS teachers and staff believe they are here to meet the needs of the 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.
