“We are thrilled to have received this recognition,” said Principal Leticia Villa-Gascon. “Our staff and students have worked very hard in an exciting and challenging middle school program to demonstrate strong student achievement. This re-designation is an affirmation of the fine work so many have done in the school, district and larger community.”

Dr. Irvin Howard, President of the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grades Reform, noted, “Rancho Milpitas Middle School is a model of what an outstanding middle school can be. School leaders from across the state will now turn to Rancho Milpitas Middle School for guidance on improving their programs to better serve their students.”

Rancho Milpitas Middle School serves seventh to eight grade students in the Milpitas Unified School District. California’s Schools to Watch-Taking Center Stage program uses a competitive, rigorous review process to identify high performing, high impact middle schools so that all middle schools may have models of real-world success. Rancho Milpitas Middle School is one of just of 59 model schools that have been identified statewide since 2003.

The program is provided by the California Middle Grades Alliance, which includes the California League of Middle Schools (CLMS; the lead agency), California Department of Education, and other statewide educational organizations who are partners in the California Middle Grades Alliance. For more information on the program, contact Dr. Irvin Howard, director, at (951) 318-7515 or [email protected] or contact Katie Winchell, director of communications, CLMS, at (800) 326-1880 or [email protected]; or visit www.clms.net/stw.

To be nominated for a Spark Shirt an individual must have demonstrated behaviors that have a strong, positive impact beyond the moment—an action or attitude that has impacted others and challenged them to work harder, think differently, etc.
