What to Look For

Testing, Testing…

Rancho's Common Core Testing (called the SBAC for Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium) will occur from Monday, April 21st through Tuesday, April 29th. Monday. 

April 21st– Thursday, April 24th will be 1:20 pm release while April 25-29th will be 3 pm release. Please note this is a change in our school calendar. 
Students will take this assessment on the computer, and must familiarize themselves with the new student interface prior to the actual test. Teachers will soon go over this interface in class. However, you can help by having your Rancho student take a practice test over Spring Break by going to https://sbacpt.tds.airast.org/student/login.aspx?c=SBAC_PT
Furthermore, over the span of April 21st - April 29th, ensure your child arrives to school on time each day, goes to bed at a reasonable time and eats a healthy breakfast. If you have any questions regarding this testing, please contact Mr. Anglon

  • If your child is on Team Journey they will need their Chrome Book in working order. 
  • The tentative Testing schedule is located on the final page of the principal's newsletter.

A School to Watch!

Local School Celebrates Re-designation as One of California’s Schools to Watch

“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 STWCAL@gmail.com or contact Katie Winchell, director of communications, CLMS, at (800) 326-1880 or editor@clms.net; or visit www.clms.net/stw.

Spark Shirts

The Spark Shirt is meant to recognize members of the Rancho community who have "shared their spark" in order to make an impact on our campus or the greater community. When someone shares their individual talents and goodness with others, they ignite a chain reaction of goodwill and acceptance.
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.
