Correia Middle School offers a safe and orderly learning environment that encompasses rigorous academic standards and high expectations in citizenship for our students. Our mission statement is as follows:

The mission of Correia Middle School is to educate all students to become responsible, literate, thinking, and contributing members of society in the 21st century.

We believe a successful learning environment:

  • Puts students' needs ahead of all else

  • Fosters student leadership and responsibility for learning and behavior

  • Provides a challenging, student-centered curriculum with high standards for all students

  • Involves parents and community in education of students

  • Teaches children to be accepting of one another

At Correia Middle School, we offer programs such as Gifted and Talented Education (GATE – Cluster and Seminar) and Special Education supports in order to meet the academic needs of all our special needs students. Our core program follows the California State Standards by implementing the Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science Frameworks.

Complementing our core program (Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science), Correia Middle School offers a comprehensive Physical Education program. The Physical Education department focuses on cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility and skill development. We utilize the Correia field and fitness room, multi-purpose spaces and the Peninsula YMCA gymnasium to support our students fitness program.


Correia Middle School offers a variety of electives. Our electives include Instrumental Music, Art, Choir, Video Production, Integrated Technology, Spanish, Associated Student Body (ASB), Yearbook, Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID), and a variety of support programs.

We have a library media center that provides students with instructional resources including digital and print instructional resources. Our library is open before and after school, as well as during lunch time five days per week.

At Correia Middle School, we encourage and advocate for parental involvement at all levels. Correia Middle School's School Site Council, School Site Governance Team, and the Correia Association meet monthly. We have an active Parent Association that fundraises in order to provide academic enrichment opportunities and extracurricular activities for all children. In order to inform parents about school events and student progress, we send weekly eblasts/School Messenger notifications, regularly update our website, and send six-week progress reports to all families. Families will have access to PowerSchool's "Parent Portal", a web-based application that will allow parents to log in and view their child's academic performance in the core subjects anytime.

You will find that Correia Middle School provides a nurturing and rigorous educational experience to meet the individual needs of our students.
