About Us » About


Welcome to Los Arboles Middle School, a “Community of Caring” school. We are proud of our diversity, which we celebrate and honor on our campus throughout the year.
Los Arboles Middle School is located in Marina, California and is one of three sixth through eighth grade middle schools in the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District.  Nestled among the trees, our school offers many opportunities for scholars, families and residents to gather together as a community.  We are proud of our diverse population and community, which is celebrated and honored throughout our campus.
Los Arboles Middle School serves approximately 625 scholars. Our talented and dedicated staff work together to support all of our scholars academically, socially, and emotionally. We provide many lunch and after school activities to further support our scholars.  We believe that each scholar can be successful and we work hard to ensure that each student performs at their personal best. 
Our staff is committed to providing a standards-based curriculum and holding our scholars to these standards. Staff members receive ongoing professional development to ensure that we are using the most current academic practices. We are proud of our staff ’s professionalism, high academic standards, and hard work.
This school year is a pilot year as we passionately partake in developing the vision for LAMS as an emerging Early College and Career middle school through a Linked Learning approach. This model is exciting as it will provide our scholars with an advantage by opening the doors to unique opportunities during middle school and beyond. We also encourage you to get involved with your child’s education and school. Studies show that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the child will perform better academically and socially. With your support, we will continue to make Los Arboles Middle School a wonderful middle school for our scholars. We hope to see you on campus!
School Vision
At Los Arboles Middle School, we promote a growth mindset and foster positive relationships among all scholars and staff. We envision a school culture that embraces diversity, promotes equity, and engages student voice. We empower scholars to be agents of change who are self-aware learners, and thinkers prepared for life within their communities and a global society. We provide an Early College and Career exploration for all scholars through a Linked Learning approach of work-based learning, career-technical education, strong systems of support, and integrated, real-world academics.
