Our Mission

The Mission of Vaca Peña Middle School, a collaborative community where everyone is valued, is to prepare and inspire all students to be active learners and productive citizens through a challenging, comprehensive curriculum that integrates social and character development in a safe, respectful and healthy environment. 

Super Saturday

'Super Saturday'  is an Academic Enrichment and Attendance Recovery Program that provides a vehicle for students to re-capture “lost learning” due to absences by participating in enrichment activities, tutorials, test prep sessions, sports clinics, and/or gain project assistance.

Listen to the School Bulletin for class offerings.
