Philosophy: Thank you for your commitment to making Roberto Clemente Middle School a place where “Every Student, Every Day Strives for Success.” The family at Clemente Middle School will help each child reach his or her highest potential through collaboration and collegiality. Through standards-based, data-driven instruction, we will move each child to a higher level. We believe that every person and every contribution, no matter how small, can create positive change. Every obstacle must be looked upon as a challenge. Every challenge, when met and overcome, builds skill and confidence. This will in turn develop lifelong abilities to make correct choices while exhibiting self-respect.

To ensure a successful learning and working environment Roberto Clemente Middle School has highly qualified teachers in all academic areas. The emphasis on academic excellence is reflected in the strong, rigorous curriculum exemplified by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years and AVID Programs. Here teachers provide intensive preparation for the social and academic challenges of middle and high school. Through the use of critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration and leadership, and agility and adaptability, our students develop the skills necessary for the 21st century.
