Cholla Middle School provides an effective middle-level education preparing young adolescents for high school. Five academic teams are responsible for the delivery of the core academic and elective classes. A full program of services meets the special learning needs of students including Learning Disabled Resource, and a district-supported program for highly gifted students. Art, music and PE are provided for all grade levels.
We believe each student should have the opportunity for maximum growth in self-knowledge, personal discipline, citizenship, social graces, and in diversified academic experience.
WESD is in the process of reviewing and adopting English Language Arts (ELA) materials to support teachers with instruction in reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and vocabulary to enhance student achievement. Teachers, staff, families and community members are invited to view the variety of materials on display at the WESD Administrative Center and to provide input.
