Skyblue Mesa serves approximately 540 students in transitional kindergarten through sixth grade on an academic year calendar which begins in August and ends in June. There are three Special Day Classes on campus that serve approximately 40 Special Education Students.
Skyblue Mesa employs 23 fully credentialed teachers. We also have a school psychologist 80% of the time, a school counselor 60% of the time, a full time and part time (2 days per week) Language and Speech Pathologist, several aides that provide support in the K classrooms, intervention program, and support with our special education classes. We also have a music teacher and media specialist that work part time at the school.
Our school is privileged to have a significant level of parental involvement. Volunteers work at the school daily to assist with classroom-related activities. Parents also serve on school and district committees such as SSC, ELAC, PAC and more. We also have a very active and cohesive Parent-Teacher Organization. Technology, music, and fine arts continue to be supported by our parents and the business community. Weekly school-wide newsletters, phone blasts and emails inform parents and students about educational information and important events.
In order to create a safe and positive learning environment for students to thrive in, we employ PBIS school wide. With this, school expectations for behavior are posted all over the school including the classrooms, these expectations are explicitly taught and positively rewarded. There is an emphasis on positive reinforcement and building positive relationships with students on our school campus. In 2018, our PBIS program was awarded Silver status by the California PBIS Coalition.
