Las Palmas Middle School welcomes you to our campus. Las Palmas is proud to hold the distinguished designations as a State and National School to Watch, a nationally awarded AVID Demonstration School and a Renaissance Recognition Movement school. Las Palmas offers educational and social programs crafted to prepare our students for limitless possibilities. Our teachers provide a rigorous and challenging curriculum designed to meet each student's educational and social needs. We are thrilled to be able to offer rigorous courses geared to prepare students for high school and set them on a path for college and career readiness.

In addition to our curricular offerings, we also participate in student leadership programs such as ASB, WEB, and the Renaissance Recognition movement. Our students have the opportunity to practice after school athletics, various service clubs, field trips, and Saturday Lancer Academy.

We know how critical these middle school years are for students to be academically challenged and socio-emotionally supported in order to help them reach their full potential. Thank you in advance for your support and partnership in your child’s educational journey as a proud Las Palmas Middle School, Lancer!
