Mission Statement

The goal of the faculty and staff at Pleasanton Middle School is to prepare students to meet the challenges and demands of the twenty-first century. Our program is designed to meet the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of the young adolescent. The comprehensive core curriculum is thoughtfully formulated to emphasize academic achievement, encourage student responsibility, and enhance self-esteem. We are committed to providing positive support and guidance for students during this transitional period.


  • Improve student achievement as measured in common grade-level or district assessments and state achievement tests.
  • Continue the process of refining and implementing the Character Education program which provides students with the skills and information they need to reflect the following core values: integrity, honesty, responsibility, respect for self and others, compassion, and self-discipline.
  • Maintain an instructional program that address the unique social, emotional, and academic needs of each individual student—from those identified as at-risk, to students in the middle, to students identified as gifted.
