Built in 1978, Mesa Verde is a K-5 Elementary School with an enrollment of approximately 385 students. Being a smaller school, there is a real family feel. We are "tucked away" in quiet neighborhood called Mesaland which features older homes on large two acre lots. In the 2015-16 school year there were 14 general education classrooms and three self-contained special education classrooms including a K-2 cross-categorical, a 3-5 cross-categorical, and a K-2 CHOICES classroom.
The Mesa Verde Staff Family includes 14 general education teachers, 6 specialist teachers, 8 special education teachers, 8 special education support staff, a part time school psychologist, a library assistant, a health aide, an instructional technology assistant, a behavior intervention monitor, an attendance clerk, an educational assistant, an administrative assistant, 2 custodians, 3 campus monitors, 5 cafeteria staff, 12 bus drivers, and 2 Community Extension Program Directors. The staff is dedicated to working together to provide a “village” of support for our students and families.
Mesa Verde has very high expectations for all students both academically and behaviorally. Staff members do a wonderful job helping students acquire the skills necessary for solving conflicts using a variety of methods. Staff reinforces the components of our code when speaking with students. We have a Kind Kids' Club, Student Council, and a Ben's Bell program that help teach the importance of caring for others, being kind to others, listening to ideas, and helping to improve Mesa Verde.
Mesa Verde believes in helping the community and giving back. One of the ways we do this is by participating in a Healthy Heart Day to raise money for the American Heart Association as well as to promote fitness. Some other student programs at Mesa Verde include Odyssey of the Mind, Bal-A-Vis-X (Balance, Auditory and Vision Exercises), School and District wide Spelling Bee, Track Meet for 4th and 5th graders, Music, Band, Orchestra, 2nd-5th Grade Choir, Art, and more. Students receive awards for Academic Achievement, Perfect Attendance, Spreading Kindness, and more.
Mesa Verde Elementary School is a community dedicated to building a strong foundation for each child to reach their full potential.
Our vision is to empower innovative learners who are confident, respectful and compassionate leaders in society.
