Welcome to Bolsa Knolls!
Welcome to Bolsa Knolls Middle School, HOME OF THE BOBCATS!!! I am pleased to welcome all of you to the 2016-17 school year, which promises to be our best one ever. Bolsa Knolls opened its doors in August of 2010 with academic, social, and personal success in mind for all of our students. We will serve approximately 615 students across three grade levels, offering a challenging program in a nurturing environment.
As part of Santa Rita Union School District, the Bolsa Knolls staff members, parents, and students participated in uniting our district with the focus on three goals for the 2016-2017 school year. All budget expenses, activities, instruction, and curriculum are all carefully aligned in meeting these goals.
Goal 1: All students will have access to rigorous instruction provided by highly qualified teachers and supported by highly effective leadership with appropriate resources.
Goal 2: All students will achieve academic proficiency through appropriate classroom placement, including strategic groupings for effective classroom based interventions to support full access to the common core state standards, rigorous instruction and socio-economic supports.
Goals 3: We strive to significantly increase parent and community engagement to inspire them to be actively involved in preparing their students to be College and Career Ready and to reduce chronic absenteeism.
I look forward to working with all of you to make the 2016-17 school year a success. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have as we continue your child’s educational journey together.
