Principal's Message

Santa Fe Middle School student's enjoy an array of activities for a well-rounded education both during and after the school day.
 
During the school day, Santa Fe prides itself in offering students a rich elective program to build 21st century technological skills, to cultivate the inner artist, to improve their musical prowess, to speak a different language, or to grow the language of compassion through Renaissance and Leadership.
 
After school, students may be found on the field or in the gymnasium participating in football, basketball, volleyball, softball, or soccer. Or, you might find a Cougar 8th grader tutoring a sixth grader in "Project Pass," working in Homework Club, or even designing the robot to continue the tradition of excellence with our award-winning robotics team. 
 
Even more than they do on the exceptional programs, the staff of Santa Fe Middle School prides itself on maintaining a sense of family. They teach the Common Core Standards in the classroom and learn about their students throughout the day. It is not uncommon to see teachers and students walking the halls at snack and lunch discussing the latest sports game or eagerly anticipating the latest book series turned into a motion picture release. These seemingly insignificant moments are the ones that bind the Cougar Community and remind them that strength and success come from the work of the collective.
