Why La Cima?  

Located on Tucson’s Northwest Side and surrounded by breathtaking mountain and city views, La Cima Middle School is  Amphi School District’s hidden gem. Our beautiful campus proudly serves a culturally and economically diverse population.

In Spanish “LA CIMA” means “The top ridge or crest of a mountain”.  Our teachers and staff will always put students first and offer gentle and consistent guidance to students on their journey to the La Cima mountain top.
