LeyVa Middle School
Dear LeyVa Students and Families,
On behalf of the entire staff, I want to welcome you to LeyVa Middle School! We continue to grow and improve in the programs and facilities we are able to offer our school community. This school year we will add a new program and facility. The program is Bulldog Tech, a school model that reflects our changing society. No longer can we measure aptitude by the amount of facts we remember, but instead by the ability to use information to communicate, collaborate, problem-solve, and contribute new ideas or creations. By teaching 21st Century Skills through a culture that empowers, technology that enables, and curriculum that engages, we will enhance learning. The facility is our state of the art food serving area. It is scheduled to open in December with the goal of feeding our students more quickly and efficiently!
LeyVa offers students the opportunity to be successful in the classroom and in extra-curricular activities. As a result, our students achieve in the classroom and beyond. It is our desire students experience success and add to the positive atmosphere of our school. For this reason and more, LeyVa gives students the chance to participate in a wide range of activities, which includes sports, clubs, noontime events, the YMCA program and much more.
Whatever interests students may have, we offer something for everyone! For example, our athletic program has been a source of pride since LeyVa opened its doors in 1973. We offer a variety of sports to our students. Our program consists of cross-country, basketball, volleyball, soccer, and track. Our teams are well known throughout the county for their excellence. When you enter our gym, look at the walls and view the many banners we have displaying the numerous championships LeyVa has won over the years.
We value visual and performing arts as illustrated with our elective course menu including art, drama, band, choir, and extra curricular activities devoted to student expression. With performances and assemblies highlighting these areas, it is clear we take great pride in the many talents of our students.
Additionally, we provide a rigorous academic program tailored to challenge students to reach their highest potential. Teachers collaborate regularly to insure all students receive standards-based, state approved programs in all subject areas. We offer honors and geometry courses to students who are academically and developmentally ready and prepared to take them on!
Dream It, Be It!
Each student will experience success at LeyVa in academics and extra-curricular activities. Self-esteem, through academic and extra-curricular achievement, is the basis of success in school and in the community. All LeyVa students will have abundant opportunities for recognition and achievement, thereby building confidence and a sense of self-worth as evidenced by their contributions to our school.
