Principal's Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Colina Middle School--home of the Cougars! Our entire staff is committed to academic excellence, as well as the social enrichment and emotional support of all of our students... every student can be a successful learner. I truly believe that teachers, students, and parents must work together and become the pathway for those educational experiences.
~ Shane Frank, Principal


JANUARY 28, 2015 6:00 pm


Colina Middle School would like to welcome all incoming 6th grade parents and students to join us on January 28th at 6:00 pm to meet teachers, walk through classrooms, talk to students and hear about all that Colina Middle School has to offer.  

Middle school hosts three very important and formative years.  At our FUTURE COUGAR NIGHT you will hear about our 6th grade academic programming, electives offerings and how Colina uses it's WEB (where everyone belongs) program to acclimate our students. The WEB  Program has been a huge success here as our elementary students transition to middle school.   WEB facilitates strategic and intentional actions where 6th graders get the necessary support to successfully navigate this transition and start their middle school experience on a positive note.  You will also hear how Measure I has provided our classrooms with resources to create 21st century learning environments as we integrate our 1:1 technology initiative school wide. 

We look forward to meeting you!
