Welcome parents, students, staff, and community members to our campus. It is my privilege to be the principal of Memorial Middle School, a Met Standard Campus with 6 Distinctions. We hope that you take a few moments to peruse all the information that our website contains. This will help you see some of the activities and accomplishments that we have made. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Memorial Middle School, we hope to establish partnerships with you in our endeavor to provide educational excellence for all students.
Educational Excellence: The Right of Every Student
In 1994 Memorial Elementary was formerly transitioned into a middle school and three years later, in 1997, a brand new building was built at 2610 North Moorefield Road and it was named Memorial Middle School.
As each new school is built, a name is chosen on merit for the individual’s contribution to the community. The middle schools of La Joya carry the name of extraordinary people. Our school is unusual in that it is not named after one particular person; rather, it was named in honor of thirteen men who sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we all enjoy today.
A monument stands tall in the open courtyard at Memorial Middle School engraved with the names of those who gave so freely in World War II, Korea and the Vietnam War. The names are available for all students and staff to view in honor of these service members. The monument serves as a pillar of strength that allows students to reflect on the great sacrifices that were made to give them the freedom to pursue their education and reach new heights.
