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.
On behalf of Memorial Middle School teachers and staff, we welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year!
Memorial Middle School is a place where students grow educationally, get involved, and have a meaningful school experience. We are committed to ensure all students succeed at high levels in order to be college and career ready.
All of this is made possible by strong partnerships that are developed with our community and our parents. Together, we will have an outstanding 2018-2019 school year!
